Ylang Ylang III Essential Oil
Ylang Ylang III Essential Oil is a premium quality Ylang Ylang Essential Oil.
It is a diversely beneficial aromatherapy oil, with a much loved, potent aroma. However, a small number of people, who are prone to headaches, find Ylang Ylang III Essential Oil a little overwhelming. It has been known to induce headaches in some.
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil Aroma
Cananga odorata, from which Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is made, is one of the most coveted flowers in perfumery. It is a base to middle note in perfumery, and is one of the key ingredients in Chanel No. 5.
Its alluring, sweet, floral, tropical, and somewhat intoxicating scent, make it one of the most popular aromatherapy oils for diffusing.
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil For Hair
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is one of the two most popular and effective essential oils for promoting healthy hair growth, and improving its overall condition. Rosemary Essential Oil is the other.
Both are often found in natural, organic shampoos and conditioners.
Just add a few of drops of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil and Rosemary Essential Oil to your regular shampoo and conditioner to improve outcomes.
There Are 5 Different Versions Of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
The process of distillation used to extract the four different unblended essential oils, from the Ylang Ylang flowers, takes 14 hours. The four different draughts of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil are extracted at different stages of the process. Ylang Ylang Extra Essential Oil is the first draught of essential oil to be produced. After this there are three more draughts of essential oil extracted, known as:
- Ylang Ylang I Essential Oil
- Ylang Ylang II Essential Oil
- Ylang Ylang III Essential Oil
*There is, however, another form of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil known as Ylang Ylang Complete Essential Oil.
Ylang Ylang Complete Essential Oil is a combination of all four Ylang Ylang Essential Oils obtained from the differing stages of oil production.
Then there is Cananga Essential Oil
Cananga Essential Oil
Cananga Essential Oil is made from the same species of plant that is used to make Ylang Ylang Essential Oil, but, from a slightly different variety.
Cananga Essential Oil is even very aromatically similar to Ylang Ylang Essential Oil… its essentially just a more toned down version of the same scent, which is preferred by some.
However, the most compelling reason to use Cananga Essential Oil is its bountiful anti-inflammatory abilities, which equal those of Copaiba Essential Oil… It is also considered excellent for head injuries.
The following feedback, referencing Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil and Cananga Essential Oil, (originally submitted via the review section of the Cananga Essential Oil page), vouches for the efficacy of both aromatherapy oils, but defines the subtle differences.
Cananga Essential Oil is a fantastic addition to [our] ‘Wild’ essential oil collection. It is very helpful for pain relief just like copaibia but with an uplifting mood effect as an added bonus for us.
The pain my wife suffers from is early osteoporosis and a frozen shoulder, I have a stiff hip that manifests after too much physical hard work.
My wife has really appreciated the massage oil, which has really aided her frozen shoulder, either made with 2 drops of copaibia essential oil or cananga essential oil. Both are as equally good as each other.
Also, when taken orally, 2 drops morning and night, we found that the copaibia essential oil is more calming emotionally whereas the cananga essential oil provides more of an up mood.
Thank you, again, Rachel

Just like Cananga Essential Oil, Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil interacts with our Endocannabinoid system, pairing itself with the CB2 receptors, located in our peripheral organs and immune system, particularly in the digestive track.
