Ylang ylang essential oil is derived from the bright yellow-green flowers of the tropical cananga tree originating from Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. Also referred to as the "perfume tree", the flowers of the cananga tree are highly aromatic. Ylang ylang flowers are commonly spread on the bed of newlywed couples in Indonesia and are strung into a necklace for women to wear or to adorn on religious images in the Philippines. The essential oil is mostly used in the fragrance industry to make perfumes but is also commonly used in aromatherapy diffusers and to make body care products such as soap, lotion, shampoos and massage oils. It blends well with a variety of other essential oils including bergamot, clary sage, eucalyptus, geranium, grapefruit, lemon, orange, patchouli and vetiver.

Purity and Grading
All of our essential oils are 100% pure, undiluted oils. We strive to source the highest quality oils from established, reputable suppliers that value purity, sustainability and natural practices. We are often questioned by customers whether our oils are “therapeutic grade”.
The term “therapeutic grade” was created and trademarked by newer essential oil companies to differentiate their products from others on the market. The truth of the matter is that the Food and Drug Administration does not certify the quality of essential oils as “therapeutic grade” nor do they provide a certifying label. GloryBee Essential Oils provide the same quality, purity, and reputability as therapeutic grade oils – often times at a lower prices.
