Aromatic Qualities

Organic, 100% pure, middle or base note, Ylang Ylang essential oil is steam distilled from the star shaped flowers of the cananga tree. Rich, exotic, sensual, sweet and spicy, Ylang Ylang essential oil is heavily used in women’s perfumery (key note in Chanel No. 5) and aromatherapy.


Eases insomnia, anxiety, decreases irritability, restlessness, and tension. Add to skin moisturisers and hair oils and tonics for split ends. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the cooling effects of Ylang Ylang essential oil can be used to treat insomnia and general tension. It can slow a rapid heart rate. The Cananga odorata oil has a feminine nature so combines well with Jasmine and Rose essential oils. For meditation or sleep, blend with Frankincense or Patchouli.

How to Use

Blends well with blood orange, Geranium, Lavender, Neroli, Patchouli, Frankincense, Sandalwood and any other woody or citrusy oil.

Cananga odorata oil can be:

  • diffused

  • added to cream or oil bases for dermal applications
  • inhaled through a cotton or from drops on the palm
  • blended in a massage oil
  • worn in an essential oil necklace or bracelet


Ylang Ylang essential oil is rich and heady when diffused in a small space; a little goes a long way
