Cananga odorata; Sananga Oil

Cananga odorata is a small but fast-growing tree native to Southeast Asia but has been spread to China, India and parts of tropical Africa where it is cultivated for its beautiful yellow flowers and essential oil. It thrives in hot, humid climates with average temperatures ranging between 20-27°C and 650-4000 mm of annual rainfall.

Is Ylang Ylang Oil Faithful to Nature?


Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is a beautifully aromatic ingredient that can be manufactured safely and farmed sustainably without harming the environment. It is, however, a powerful ingredient and should be used wisely.

Benefits: Why is Ylang Ylang Oil Used?

Powerful Scent

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil has a floral scent, ranging from delicate to powerful.

Oil Control

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil may help control excess oiliness on the scalp.

Skin Soothing

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil may help to control skin inflammation and redness.

Improved Mood

Ylang Ylang Oil is frequently used in aromatherapy to boost mood, support symptoms of depression and even as an aphrodisiac.

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil can be found on store shelves as a single ingredient essential oil. It is often used by premium natural and organic skin and hair care ranges as a fragrance and odour masking ingredient.

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is made by steam distillation of the flowers.

EU regulations specify that certain fragrance oils commonly found in natural essential oils must be labelled separately on ingredient lists on cosmetic product labels. The EU governing bodies specify this because they are recognised as potential allergens which can irritate sensitive skin. Linalool, benzyl alcohol, and geraniol are three of these and are present in Ylang Ylang essential oil.

A small island nation called Comoros, situated between the Northern tips of Madagascar and Mozambique, is reportedly responsible for about 80% of the world’s commercial Ylang Ylang production.
