Less exotic and dramatic than our Ylang-Ylang Extra, this Complete oil is the result of full distillation of the lovely Ylang-Ylang flower, distilled without interruption or fractioning. (To learn more, please read About Ylang-Ylang Fractional Distillation.)
I find it softer and more relaxing to work with than the Extra. It is becoming one of my favorite oils. Soft, warm and comforting, a beautiful oil, artfully distilled. Aromatically this complete is richly floral with touches of wood notes with a softer and sweeter drydown than the separate fractions.
Ylang-ylang is known in Asia as an antidepressant, relaxing to body, mind and spirit, as well as an aphrodisiac. It is said to calm anger, release tension, lift depression and generally stabilize mood swings.
Ylang-ylang mixed with Jasmine or Rose has been used to treat sexual difficulties, especially those stemming from lack of confidence.
Physically, it has been used to lower blood pressure, ease muscle spasms and tense muscles, and treat PMS and menopausal symptoms.
In a facial oil or cream, it can help balance sebum production and is most helpful to oily skin. It also can fight the bacteria that often contribute to acne. Ylang-ylang is said to stimulate hair growth and might be a useful addition to a shampoo or conditioner.
SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle. Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
