$22.95

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

Ylang Ylang Complete Essential Oil is included in the Rocky Mountain Oils Relief, Mood, and Skin Care collections. The oil, often used in perfumes, has a strong aroma. 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 can be used in daily skin care products, including soaps and detergents.

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 about 15 hours.

The essential oil Ylang Ylang is distilled in “fractions” (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, that takes about 15 hours, creates the Ylang Ylang Complete, with a rich, herbaceous aroma that has more sesquiterpenes.

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.

Sweet treat!
I have a sweet tooth, and love sweet fragrances. This oil is euphoric and I love adding about ten drops to my bathwater. Bliss!

Not too impressed
I'm not really getting or feeling the benefits of having this oil, though it has a sweet aroma that's pretty much all it has.

Smells amazing. Great for hair.
Bought because of its value to boost hair health when used in hair products. Use almost exclusively in the jojoba oil that I put on my scalp as part of regular regimen. Also is in a homemade detangler for my kids' hair. Noticed less breakage with my hair.

Love it
As soon as I received my oil, I mixed with a little bit of FCO and put it behind my ears and pulse points for a perfume. Wow did it smell nice.A lot smoother when diluted. Can't wait to see what other uses there are for this.

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: I have never mixed these two together; I wouldn't try due to each having - for me - a very different nature, which I don't see as balancing each other well. I do use my rose blend with many other oils, such as Frankincense and myrrh, which I think provide a wondrous combination. Hope this helps.
