The Canaga odorata genuina flowers are steam distilled in Madagascar, the Philippines and the isle of Reunion. Large yellow flowers picked in the early morning while the sun is high in the sky hold these sweet scented energies. This one flower is typically distilled in varying grades.The highest and truest version of this lovely flower is obtained in the first hours of extraction and this is referred to as Ylang Ylang extra superior.
