Ylang Ylang essential oil, pronounced “Ee-lang Ee-lang,” receives its common name from the repetition of the Tagalog word “ilang,” meaning “wilderness,” which is where the tree is naturally found. The wilderness to which it is native or in which it is cultivated includes the tropical rainforests of the Philippines, Indonesia, Java, Sumatra, Comoro and Polynesia. The Ylang Ylang tree, scientifically identified as the Cananga odorata botanical, is sometimes referred to as The Fragrant Cananga, The Perfume Tree and The Macassar Oil Plant. Ylang Ylang essential oil is derived from the plant’s sea star-shaped flowering parts. It is known to have a scent that can be described as sweetly and delicately floral and fresh with a fruity nuance.
