A prominent member of the Annonaceae family of flowering trees, ylang ylang (“ee-lang ee-lang”) originates from Indonesia and the Philippines and can be found elsewhere in the South Pacific. The plant's eye-catching star-like blooms are the source of its warm, heady and floral essential oil, which is created during a lengthy steam-distillation process.
