Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata) is sometimes distilled in fractions from the blossoms commonly originating in Madagascar. It is called the “flowers of flowers” and carries a sweet, slightly exotic aroma that is used in many perfumes. Benefits may include:
- uplifting for the blues
- calms and releases tension
- balances skin sebum production
Ylang Ylang blends best with other florals as well as citruses and woodsy aromas.
