In the Philippines, Ylang Ylang means "flower of flowers". As one of today's most romantic fragrances, its flowers yield an exotic, aphrodisiac aroma that's cherished by many aromatherapists and perfume makers. NOW Ylang Ylang is 100% pure and natural and steam-distilled from mature Cananga odorate flowers.

Fun fact: Indonesians spread ylang ylang petals on the bed of newly wedded couples.

Exotic. Mysterious. Spicy. Those three words describe ylang ylang to a "T." Ylang ylang's aroma can both uplift and relax. It's been around for centuries, and has been most frequently used as an aphrodisiac, yet it has many other stimulating qualities as well. Victorians used it to stimulate the scalp to encourage hair growth. The Chinese used it for circulatory health and to balance the heart. Early 20th century researchers discovered ylang ylang oil was effective against malaria, typhus, and various intestinal infections. Around the same time, researchers also recognized ylang ylang had a calming effect on the heart. Today, ylang ylang is a treasured essential oil, and is actually more powerful when combined with other oils.
