This is a complete distillation. Ylang Ylang essential oil often undergoes a disrupted distillation process whereby five grades of essential oil are collected.
‘Extra’ is the most expensive oil from the first hour of distillation, ‘First’ is the next 3 hours, ‘Second’ is the next 5 hours, and ‘Third’ is the last 9 hours.
‘Complete’ indicates that the oil is the total result of an uninterrupted 20-24 hour water and steam distillation of the fresh flowers, rendering a genuine, full-spectrum or complete oil instead of the usual shorter distillation time in which the other fractions are kept completely separate.
