Ylang ylang III (Cananga odorata) essential oil has many uses, but it is especially known for its romantic aroma, soothing capacities and long-time associations with peace and happiness.
Aura Cacia Organic Ylang Ylang III Essential Oil comes from flowers in Madagascar that are distilled immediately after they are picked in the morning, resulting in an oil with an especially fresh floral aroma.
What’s the difference between organic ylang ylang III essential oil and conventional ylang ylang III essential oil? Organic essential oils differ from conventional oils in that the botanicals from which they are derived are grown according to the USDA’s Organic Standards. Aura Cacia's manufacturing facility and all of their organic essential oils have also been certified organic by the established third-party certifier, Quality Assurance International (QAI).
• Ylang ylang III essential oil blends well with lavender, rose, neroli, sandalwood, vanilla, clove bud, vetiver, patchouli, jasmine, geranium and citrus oils.
• Ylang ylang essential oil can be distilled for different lengths of time, resulting in different aroma profiles: ylang ylang extra, ylang ylang I, ylang ylang II, ylang ylang III and ylang ylang complete. When the oil reaches a certain molecular weight, it's removed and called extra. As it distills longer, it starts with ylang ylang I, and can continue to completion. Ylang ylang III is pulled shortly before distillation is completed (12- 13 hours), and is generally a heavier oil, prized for its base notes.
Suggested Usage: Exotic Perfume: 2 drops ylang ylang, 3 drops geranium, 12 drops patchouli, 1 drop cassia bark in a mister. Sensual diffusion: 5 drops each ylang ylang and lemon in a candle lamp diffuser.
