    Organic Ylang-ylang essential oil

    1 reviews

    A magnificent yellow flower, whose name means "Flower of flowers", Ylang-ylang adorns the cananga trees of the Indian Ocean islands: Madagascar, the Comoros archipelago, Reunion Island... It is harvested at dawn and its essential oil, which is complete here, is made up of all the fractions resulting from its distillation, which lasts about ten hours. Its exotic, warm and intoxicating fragrance is an invitation to travel and leaves no one indifferent.
