Our Lily & Ylang Ylang range is extremely popular here at Heyland & Whittle. The sweet but powerful scent of lilies is one of many people's favourite smells, but not everyone is aware of what ylang ylang is and how this natural essential oil can benefit the skin.

Where does ylang ylang come from?

The ylang ylang tree can be found in the rainforests of Asia and the South Pacific. Its vibrant yellow flowers are distilled with steam to extract their essential oil, which we use in our Lily & Ylang Ylang-scented products to provide them with a stunning fragrance.

The scent of ylang ylang is both tropical and floral, which makes it a beautiful addition to beauty and home fragrance products. It is quite powerful, so when combined with lily it creates a heady but gorgeous aroma that can leave you smelling wonderful hours after your bath or shower.
