“Extra” grade (the highest quality) ylang ylang (Cananga odorata) has an intense floral aroma that is prized in perfumes. The powerful scent nourishes and encourages the spirit. Dab a single drop on pulse points for an alluring perfume. Ylang ylang essential oil has a delightful scent. Didn’t like to one you sampled, try others! There are three extractions of this flower, and each one offers its own variation on ylang ylang’s scent. Ylang ylang extra is often considered the best, but follow your nose! The one you like best is the best one for you. Ylang ylang is thought to lift the spirit, calm the heart, and aid the skin. Adding a few drops to an unscented lotion could make the best lotion for someone who an anxious, has a rapid heartbeat, and certain types of skin issues. A fantastic scent that blends well with lavender, sandalwood, bergamot, and – for a great, gentle morning pick me up – grapefruit.
