Ylang Ylang  is pronounced like “e-lang e-lang.” The name is derived from the Tagalog word “ilang,” which means wilderness. I LOVE that! It has sweet notes like banana, custard and honey, along with floral and citrus notes such as Jasmine and Neroli. I hope you love this one of a kind oil.


What does "Extra" mean? (Only the best at Emerald!)


  • Extra. Ylang ylang extra is the first extract to come from the distillation process and is harvested after one hour. It’s the richest and most potent version of this essential oil. It’s usually what’s added to high-end perfumes and candles use
