YLANG-YLANG BOTANICAL & LATIN BINOMIAL ~   Cananga odorata    Hook. f. & Thomson. Ylang has different frequent names similar to  Macassar-oil plant, or fragrance tree. Ylang-Ylang is alleged to imply ‘flower of flowers’ within the Philippines. Nonetheless, I used to be not capable of verify this. It may imply a number of different phrases as properly. The Tagalog identify is ilang-ilang.

They’re thought of totally different timber with totally different plant descriptions, forma macrophylla from Java and different islands whereas forma genuina is greatest when from Madagascar.   
       I’ve been lucky to have seen and smelled each sorts though on the time (1990) I used to be not conscious of the distinction within the vegetation.

         Household – Annonaceae

COUNTRIES OF ORIGIN ~ Native to India, Indonesia, and the Philippines, and grows properly within the Comoros, Islands of Madagascar, Réunion, in addition to Haiti and Zanzibar. The Fairchild Tropical Gardens in Coral Gables, Florida have timber as does the Palm Seashore Backyard Membership (I imagine that was the identify of the place the place I spoke about 20 years in the past).

GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF PLANT, HABITAT & GROWTH ~ Tall tropical tree rising over 60 ft excessive with massive drooping yellow flowers, as much as six inches extensive. The flowers first seem inexperienced and are with out perfume and coated in white hairs, then, roughly twenty days later, change to white then to yellow and turn out to be very aromatic.

            “On this nation, there are additionally massive timber which at sure instances produce very stunning aromatic flowers. One in every of these is the Cananga-tree, which is slightly excessive, stunning of the trunk (which generally could also be a fathom round), and greyish of bark. The leaves are in rows on lengthy twigs organized in opposition to one another, about so long as extensive, much like a peach leaf, acute, and filled with ribs. The blossom, or flowers, present themselves right here and there between the leaves, in bunches, properly much like a considerably yellow or orange ribbon, which hangs down, consisting of six lengthy slim weak leaflets, about a bit of finger lengthy, and as extensive.
Her true shade at first is pale yellow, having on prime as a small peppercorn, from which the fruit comes. They’re very robust in scent, which they unfold alongside the entire highway the place this tree stands, particularly in direction of the night time; but their shade is probably the most nice. A lot of the flowers fall with out producing a fruit (just a few excepted) and had been collected, for nosegays for the younger damsels, to hold them of their hair. The native dries it, too, to smoke it underneath his tobacco, or to eat them with betel nut, placing a leaflet with the betel quid. Additionally they serve to embellish with them the vegetable-bows on the massive festivals, and particularly with an oil that has been extracted, which could be very robust, aromatic, and helpful in opposition to many illnesses originating from frigidness.    The natives additionally use this oil beneath their betel nut, additionally they combine it along with their bobori .

7) full notes ought to be taken on all elements of the rising, harvesting and distillation together with info on the distillation climate, water, tools, wind and temperature through the distillation.

        “The flowers of the tree are steam-distilled.  “The primary a part of the distillation produced throughout the first 45 minutes produces the best oil, generally known as “Additional” and the receiver is then eliminated, and one other receiver put as an alternative. The “Additional” is used primarily in perfumery.  The identical flowers  proceed to be distilled for a number of extra hours and in 2 ½  hours, one other receiver when eliminated is known as the 1st fraction, because the distillation continues for a number of extra hours and the receiver is eliminated and that is known as the twond fraction, distillation will proceed for as much as 10-14 hours and eventually, the  finish outcome is known as the threerd fraction. This final fraction is usually used for eradicating varnishes.

Eight totally different fractions (sorts) of ylang-ylang oil (7 courtesy of eden botanicals)

There may be extra descriptive odor info within the
Mixing portion of this weblog publish and odor snapshots on the finish. I’m
notably keen on the  Absolute of
Ylang-Ylang and the Additional that I’ve from 1995, and 2005.  These two sorts of Ylang-ylang are so wealthy
and floral, fruity with powder and honey again notes.

         Absolutely the and the additional have deep wealthy shade and have a really satisfying and wealthy fatty, floral, and a fruity odor that has nice tenacity in a scent mix. The entire and the high-quality natural are additionally satisfying with very particular makes use of in mixing and perfumery. In a mix these prime fractions have uncommon energy within the prime notice, and the perfume fades out very slowly and elegantly in a long-lasting, floral-spicy and really candy manner that’s really paying homage to the perfume of the flower.


Ylang-Ylang is just not soluble in 2 volumes of 95% alcohol. Meaning for those who add 1-volume of Ylang-Ylang to 2-volumes of alcohol it is going to be milky and never clear. You must add sufficient alcohol as a diluent in order that it isn’t milky.         Years in the past, I had a telephone name from a pupil that the Ylang she was utilizing was milky and never clear when she added alcohol as a diluent. I went to my Guenther books and browse all about  Ylang and located that it isn’t soluble in sure quantities of alcohol. As an experiment in July of 2002, I made a decision to do some varied dilutions for my very own information and experimentation. As follows:
1 quantity of Ylang -Ylang Additional plus 2 volumes of 85% Pear EtOH — milky and creamy in shade …
1 quantity of Ylang -Ylang Additional plus 2 volumes of 95% Grain EtOH — milky and golden in shade …
1 quantity of Ylang -Ylang #Three plus 2 volumes of 85% Pear EtOH — milky and creamy in shade …
1 quantity of Ylang -Ylang #Three plus 2 volumes of 95% Grain EtOH  — milky and golden in shade …


           In September 2002, I combined 20 drops of every of the 4 sorts of Ylang -Ylang with 10 or fewer drops of every of the alcohol and located that the colour stayed golden in shade and that the mixtures had been clear.  

        18 hours later at 10 am on 9/7/02 – I seemed on the mixtures and located that the Ylang-Ylang had settled out of the 85% EtOH and was nonetheless turbid in 95% grain EtOH. I combined the 2 sorts of 85% EtOH and Ylang-Ylang collectively and watched the settling course of.

            Then I learn Guenther once more and located
that in case your Ylang -Ylang will get milky in alcohol it solely signifies that you added
too little or an excessive amount of alcohol — it’s speculated to get milky and if it doesn’t
get milky then you’ve an adulterated Ylang -Ylang. In different phrases, the extra
alcohol you add the milkier and cloudier it will get till as much as 10 volumes of 90%
EtOH and it’ll start to clear. [thus, you need 10 times the high-proof
alcohol as a diluent with Ylang-Ylang]


            Right here is extra info from Guenther…

“Oils obtained by steam distillation in a big distillery on Madagascar are of excellent high quality. The comparatively excessive particular gravity and ester variety of the “3rd” fraction show that distillation was not “pushed” too far. Total distillation of Ylang-Ylang lasted 12  hours….”1                                    —Guenther, The Important Oils, vol. 5, pages 297 particularly and pages 276-316.

HISTORICAL USES ~ Perfumery and as an aphrodisiac and anti-depressant.           
Ylang-Ylang or Cananga oil is used as hairdressing and constituent of perfumery together with Chanel No. 5 and others. It’s typically combined with pimento oil (aka Allspice oil or Pimenta dioica). Macassar oil is usually made utilizing coconut oil or palm oil or that of Schleichera oleosa (known as Kusum or Malay Lac tree), mixed with Ylang-ylang oil that’s obtained by processing the flowers of the Ylang-ylang tree, (Cananga odorata) and different aromatic oils.

           An outdated enjoyable phrase is an antimacassar. The Macassar oil would switch from the person’s hair to the again of his chair and the antimacassar was developed, that’s, a small material like a doily or tatted cloth positioned over the backs or arms of chairs, or the pinnacle or cushions of a settee, to stop soiling of the chair. The identify additionally refers back to the material flap ‘collar’ on a sailor’s shirt or prime, used to maintain macassar oil off the uniform.

the Cananga odorata will not be edible.  When the flowers are picked at night time, they
are probably the most aromatic and the resultant important oil is named the “Queen of
Perfumes”.  It’s not well-known, however
Ylang-Ylang oil is utilized in confectionery, enhancing fruit flavors similar to peach
and apricot, for sweet, icings and baked items, in addition to in smooth drinks and
chewing gum. 

            OVER the years, I’ve written about Ylang-Ylang and in contrast the varied fractions of the important oil and have famous that they’re changing into much less intense and totally different each in scent and in shade. I’ve skilled and photographed these modifications. I can’t say why these modifications have occurred however since writing The Aromatherapy Guide in 1992, I wrote the next.  “Now we come to the de-evolution of Ylang Full – as soon as a wealthy and actual complete scent that was distilled from the flowers and picked up from the full distillation.” Within the {photograph} beneath, you may see the colour change from the wealthy shade of 1995, to much less shade in 2000, to ever much less shade from 2005 to 2010. Once more, I’m assuming that the massive fragrance homes are getting one of the best, or presumably the distillers are distilling too lengthy or possibly the 1st fraction is eliminated, and the steadiness collected; however no matter is going on, it isn’t good!

            And about
Ylang-Ylang Additional: “It’s superb how Ylang-Ylang Additional has modified and
de-evolved over time with presumably the identical causes taking place that growers
and distillers are sending the very best high quality Additional to Paris for high-end
fragrance or the climate is altering and messing with the flowers or the
distillers will not be being as discriminating as they as soon as had been to separate every
fraction rigorously. Have a look at the good variety of shade (additionally mirrored within the
scent) of Ylang-Ylang Additional from 1995 to 2005 to 2010.” This continues immediately.  You possibly can be taught

2 Types Of Ylang-Ylang Hydrosol With The Essential Oil.
Cananga odorata hydrosol from Waiitibotanicals.com

HYDROSOL ~ I obtained
the above two bottles of Ylang-Ylang hydrosol in October. They had been distilled
on the finish of August from flowers harvested within the early a.m. on the island of
Kauai. Distillation began earlier than midday and lasted for Eight hours for the
steam-distillation and Four hours for the hydro-distillation. Wai’iti
values their firm as a single origin botanical purveyor and
began this plant from seed.

That is the well-known Wolfie Canine in 1995

          Many who’ve the books of Jeanne Rose, aromatherapist and writer of many books regarding herbs and aromatherapy, know the story of  Sumo and Wolfie.  “A number of books that I’ve written describe many pure treatments. The story of Sumo, my son Bryan Moore’s canine who was a full-grown Akita-Shepherd cross with the face of a pet, is a lesson in pure well being care.  He was run over by a automotive and dragged alongside the pavement on his proper facet for a long way.  The damage to his rear proper leg was extreme together with severed ligaments and tendons in a 180-degree rotation across the hock joint and torn off pores and skin and muscle groups.  Veterinarians really helpful amputation.  I (Jeanne Rose) refused to permit this and handled the canine’s wounds with diluted flowering Tea Tree hydrosol (Melaleuca linariifolia) and diluted important oils of recent Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) and Lavender (Lavandula x intermedia var Grosso). As we speak there’s solely an nearly unnoticeable scar the size of his leg and a slight limp in Sumo’s blissful gait.  On the similar time, I used Ylang-Ylang #1 (Cananga odorata) oil in a diffuser to deal with my canine, Wolfie (the attractive blue-eyed Siberian Husky), by inhalation. She was emotionally traumatized by the horrible incident.”5 She additionally wouldn’t go exterior until attended.
