Ylang Ylang Extra

Ylang Ylang is most commonly known as an aphrodisiac. Differing from Ylang Ylang Complete, Ylang Ylang Extra is ideal for perfumers. With a more refined, rounded scent than Ylang Ylang Complete, Ylang Ylang Extra is great diffused or used in a perfume, and can also help reduce every day worry and uplift mood. Added to a carrier oil, it can also be used for a romantic massage!

5.0 5  Delicate and lovely

One of my favorite oils to diffuse. It has a light, uplifting scent that quickly puts me in a better mood. I'm currently diffusing it with frankincense, myrrh, and vetiver, all of which are "heavier," more grounding oils. The ylang ylang rounds out the combination nicely to give an overall cheerful, almost spring like scent. This is certainly an oil up want to keep in stock!

5.0 5  lovely and sweet scent

I bought this as one of 5 first purchases of essential oils to make a blend for sleeping. The blend is helping, and this is a very sweet smelling oil. Very nice. I am disappointed to learn that it is toxic to cats as I have 3 cats, so won't be using the oils as freely as I had anticipated. I'll buy a personal inhaler and forego using a diffuser.

3.0 5  A bit strong for me...

This oil was so much stronger in scent than I expected, even when highly diluted. Perhaps the other version of ylang ylang would be different. Regardless, Plant Therapy was wonderful to work with and issued me a refund when I was not satisfied with the product.

5.0 5  Top Five!

This is one of our favorite oils and one of the first I bought when entering the world of essential oils. I had never heard of it but it was used in a blend for blood pressure that I found. It is a sweeter smelling oil but we still like it. We use it in sleep, blood pressure and general relaxing blends.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
