Ylang Ylang Essential Oil description and origin:

Ylang-Ylang Essential Oil:

Ylang-Ylang is indigenous to Maritius, Tahiti, Seychelles and the Phillippines. Ylang-Ylang is a small tree that comes in three variety flower colours: pink, purple and yellow. It is said that the best oil is distilled from the yellow flowers.

 

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil Constituents (Ylang Ylang Essential Oil Ingredients):

Below we list reported constituents of this Ylang Ylang Essential Oil. This may not be complete as continuous research constantly discovers new constituents.

Benzoic Acid: An aromatic acid (product of the shikimic acid pathway).

Geraniol: A terpene alcohol. Fragrant and regarded as highly valued oil in aromatherapy and the perfume industry. Terpene alcohols are antimicrobial but are a lot gentler on the skin than the phenols.  

Linanool: Linalool one of the terpene alcohols is widely distributed in the plant kingdom. Linalool has strong effects on the nervous system and is therefore widely used by aroma therapists and herbologists as a sedative, spasmolytic and local anaesthetic. It is also used against many skin complaints, mostly in the form of tea tree oil.

Eugenol: Anaesthetic, antimicrobal, disinfecting, stimulant, aromatic and anticonvulsant.

Eugenol is a Phenylpropanoid in the Phenols group. Eugenol is widely distributed in the plant kingdom.

Potentially irritant. Sensitivity should be tested before using this substance or oil on the skin.

Safrole: A Phenolic Ether is suspected to have carcinogenic properties. The use of this oil has been restricted in many countries.

Phenolic Ethers: Phenolic ethers on their own are irritant and toxic Phenylpropane derivatives. Where Phenolic Ethers are present in essential oils these oils must be used with care and extreme dilutions as even small amounts of phenolic ethers are toxic.

Cadinene: No current data available

Benzyl Acetate: An Ester

Esters: Mainly found in small amounts in flowers, Esters are responsible for the characteristic fragrances of the flowers and volatile oils.

Esters are mostly sedative and antispasmodic and generally non-irritant and mild, although some, like Methyl Salicylate, found in wintergreen, are more irritant.

 

Pinene: Commonly found in Oil of Turpentine extracted from Pinus specie trees, pinene (alpha-pinene and beta-pinene) is also widely distributed in other plants. It is used for Rheumatism as a liniment but is best known by Aromatherapists and a tonic of the mucus membranes of the respiratory system. Pinene is also important for its pleasant fragrance and is believed to have diuretic properties by many.
