Ylang Ylang essential oil is distilled from a small tree which grows in Indonesia, the Philippines,
Madagascar and Reunion Islands. It means 'flowers of flowers' and you can find pink, mauve and yellow flowered
varieties. The best oil comes from the yellow flowers, which are picked very early
in the day, in early summer. The fragrant, pale yellow petals are often strewn across the marriage bed as
a symbol of love.
The oil is produced by steam distillation. The flowers may be distilled several times,
and the oil varies in quality, depending on the distillation. This oil is from the very first minutes of the distillation, the Ylang Ylang 'fraction' called 'Extra'. It is considered the very finest quality of Ylang Ylang, sought after by natural perfumers and aromatherapists alike.

and help restore confidence.
