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.

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.

very strong
the first time i diffused this i added 3 drops... this was 2 drops too many for sure. it is a very strong floral fragrance and was over powering for me, although it does smell nice i will be using very small quantities at a time. at least this will keep me from spending too much money!

Can't handle the smell
My 2 star rating has nothing to do with the quality of the oil or an opinion of RMO (which I LOVE, btw) but everything to do with personal preference of the scent. I wish I loved the smell of Ylang Ylang, but I cannot handle the pure blend. If Ylang Ylang is one of several ingredients, then I can handle it.

If you even minorly dislike the smell of Ylang Ylang, this is not the product for you.

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.
Why is Extra considered more therapeutic if the Complete is distilled longer to 'extract more of the therapeutic properties'?

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
