What is Ylang Ylang Complete?

The essential oil Ylang Ylang is distilled in “fractions”, which means that the oil is taken off at different stages based on time. The difference in the grades Extra, 1, 2, 3, and Complete are based on the amount of time spent in the distillation process. The different grades do not indicate the quality of the oil—rather, the difference in aroma and constituents. The first fraction extracted is called “extra”, and it requires about two hours of distillation. The aroma is sweeter, more fruity, and contains more esters. The full distillation takes about 15 hours and creates Ylang Ylang Complete, which has a rich, herbaceous aroma and more sesquiterpenes.

Great purchase!
I purchased this product because it has been OOS with YL forever. It’s my favorite oil. I was not disappointed with this purchase. The oil smells great and is very strong. I’m very happy I purchased from RMO and will purchase again in the future. Much less expensive than YL and free shipping. I’m a happy new customer!

I love this oil. It's strong so I only have to use about 2 drops in my diffuser. I find the aroma sweet and relaxing. I will definitely be ordering this one again. Thank you Rocky Mountain for your fast shipping and your packaging is great!

Enjoyable, but not my favorite
I have nothing to compare this product to. I have never smelled this oil scent before. I just wanted to see what it was like, so as far as a rating goes, I can only give it 5 stars. I received it on time and it smells like it was described...floral, sweet and sort of spicy. I don’t love the way it smells on me in my lotion, but I do love placing a drop on the shelf in my shower and enjoying the scent during a steam session.

What are the differences between the Two Ylang Ylangs that you carry?
Tami L on May 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: When Ylang Ylang is first distilled, the first portion extracted is slightly superior in its therapeutic properties and has a unique smell. This first portion we call “extra” only requires two hours of distillation. However, the Ylang Ylang must be distilled longer to extract all the therapeutic components from the plant. The first few hours of the distillation process create the Ylang Ylang Extra while the the full distillation, from six to twenty hours, creates the Ylang Ylang Complete. The final product is a complete distillation of the plant matter.
Can ylang ylang be mixed with rose blend? How much of each? THANK YOU
Chris on Jan 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes the oils can be mixed. There is not a specific amount of how much you should mix on one versus the other, this will be based on personal preference or if you are following a specific recipe/DIY. Thanks! -RMO Team
Can this oil be diffused safely around cats?
Brittany L on Feb 19, 2019

At this time, we have found insufficient research about using essential oils on or around domestic animals, including procedures and possible reactions. Because of this lack of research, we are unable to advise how to use essential oils with pets.

For more information, we are happy to suggest some great books! Please see below:

- The Animal Desk Reference: Essential Oils for Animals, by Melissa Shelton, DVM
- Holistic Aromatherapy for Animals: A Comprehensive Guide to the Use of Essential Oils & Hydrosols with Animals, by Kristen Leigh Bell
