Ylang Ylang I Essential Oil

Ylang Ylang I Essential Oil

(Cananga odorata) 

calming, aphrodisiac 

Ylang Ylang I is the most popular of the Ylang Ylang levels because it is still very floral but not as premiumly priced as the Extra. Use to calm breathing, for high blood pressure, and to treat impotence (frigidity). 

Ylang-Ylang means 'Flower of Flowers' and is an exotic, aphrodisiac floral. It is available in 3 distillations, from the Extra, which is the most floral to the Ylang-Ylang III, which is more bourbon-like in scent.
