Availability: In Stock
$22.00

Ylang Ylang Extra Essential Oil (Cananga odorata) is also commonly known as Macassar. Ylang Ylang Extra Essential Oil has a medium-strength intensely sweet, fruity floral, and rich aroma presenting a middle-base fragrance note.

Ylang Ylang Extra Essential Oil is included as part of the Rocky Mountain Oils Mood, Skin Care, and Sleep collections. The oil, often used in perfumes, should be used sparingly as a little goes a long way. Diffuse the oil alone or in a blend to help bring harmony to your life, along with feelings of peace. The balancing oil complements meditation and also can be used in daily skin care products, including soaps and detergents.

Ylang Ylang Extra’s aroma is intensely sweet, floral, and rich with slightly fruity undertones. Its scent is the sweeter of the two. It has been distilled for about two hours, and the scent is slightly different than Ylang Ylang Complete.

Ylang Ylang Complete vs Ylang Ylang Extra

  • Ylang Ylang Extra’s aroma is intensely sweet, floral, and rich with slightly fruity undertones. Its scent is the sweeter of the two. Extra is considered to be the most therapeutic of the two. It has been distilled for about 2 hours and the scent is slightly different than Ylang Ylang Complete

  • Ylang Ylang Complete’s aroma is intensely sweet, floral, and rich with herbaceous undertones, giving it a lighter scent than Ylang Ylang Extra. It has been distilled for 6-20 hours. This one is a favorite to use in blends.


When distilling Ylang Ylang, the first portion extracted is slightly therapeutically superior and has a unique smell. This first portion we call “extra” and it requires only 2 hours of distillation. However, the Ylang Ylang must be distilled longer to extract all of the therapeutic constituents from the plant. The first few hours of the distillation process create the Ylang Ylang Extra while the the full distillation, anywhere from 6-20 hours, creates the Ylang Ylang Complete, because it is a complete distillation of the plant matter.

Love it
I really love the sweet, pleasing, relaxing smell of ylang ylang. This essential oil is really what I was looking for. It sends me back many years when I was a child and my mum used to have it (from another brand). This was exactly the same type of smell I wanted.

New to the EO diffuser world
After deciding to embark on the EO diffuser world I started looking at different recipes. Wanting to blend my own I read blends that other reviewers shared. Ylang Ylang Extra was a frequent ingredient. A good first purchase.

I bought this oil because I ran out of doTerra's Ylang Ylang. This oil is sweeter scented, and just nicer than the other. I'm sold on this one from now on!

I really wanted to like this one
I do not like this smell at all. I want to request to exchange it, but had not checked to see how. I can not use it in the bedroom. I now tried it in the bathroom, but not even the cat can stand it. How can I return and exchange it>?

Who knew?
I stumbled across an EO recipe that included this oil for bedtime relaxation. When I ran out of Lavender, I tried this, and found it was very effective. Also smells good to me, and because it is different than Lavender, the two mix well together.

Strong & Powerful
This oil is FABULOUS! I love how strong the smell is, this bottle will last a long time even though I use it every night. It's also like a magical sleep balm. I add a drop to whatever I'm diffusing at night (even respiratory blends like Deep Breathe when needed) and I can't believe how much it helps me drift off to sleep.

What's the difference between the ylang ylang complete and extra?
Shawn P on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you look at the "Facts" on either of those oils it will tell you the difference. Extra is supposed to be the most therapeutic of the two.
