Ylang Ylang flowers

Where does Ylang Ylang essential oil come from?

Ylang Ylang essential oil is extracted from steam-distilled, star-shaped flowers of the Cananga odorata trees. These bright flowers grow in lush, tropical climates like Malaysia, Indonesia, and Madagascar. Did you know that the climate where the trees grow changes how the flowers smell?  Young Living’s Ylang Ylang oil comes from two climates: Madagascar and Ecuador. The lovely trees flourishing at the Finca Botanica Farm in Ecuador are the only source for Ylang Ylang in that climate, which gives our oil a unique scent profile.
