Comments from the lab:

The analysis of this Ylang Ylang sample has all the correct chemical constituents of Cananga Odorata and no contamination or adulteration was detected. The ratio indicates a slight blend rather than complete only distillation.

Comments From Sacred Soul Holistics

Ylang Ylang is always a bit different to the others, both in distillation process and also in the fact it rarely fits neatly into the ‘standard spec’ ratio of the components. Also slightly blending the distillation to obtain a wonderful scent is common practice.

We always test the sample first and then decide whether we want to proceed with the order from the same batch. The main things we look for with Ylang Ylang testing are:
1. That each of the main chemical constituents that are supposed to be present are all present (they are)
2. That there are no signs of contamination or adulteration (there aren’t)
3. The scent… it’s amazing from this batch if we do say so ourselves 🙂

One thing to note is if you are looking for very specific therapeutic properties from Ylang Ylang essential oil. If this is the case then you should take more notice of the chemical component ratio and make sure that the required components (that provide your desired properties) are present in high enough quantities.

What Is GC/MS Testing?

Gas Chromatography (GC)

Gas Chromatography (GC) describes the analytical separation technique used to analyze volatile substances in the gas phase. With GC, each chemical component passes through the gas chromatograph instrument at different speeds and times and as it does so, produces a ‘peak’ which can be tall or short. So GC tells you the ‘peak’ reading of each component but not what the component actually is.

Mass Spectrometry (MS)

Mass Spectrometry (MS) is what identifies the chemical components by separating ions by their unique mass as different molecules have different masses and this is how they are identified. The analyst can then read the results of the GCMS and identify each chemical component and the quantity of each that makes up the sample, expressed in a percentage.
