Ylang-Ylang oil is a prized aromatic oil widely considered the world's most relaxing essence thanks to its delicate fragrance and therapeutic properties (Araral, 2013). It is also the number one ingredient used by leading manufacturers in making perfumes, aromatic soaps, shampoos, lotions, mouthwash, and even novelty items like scented and mosquito-repellent candles. (Fresco, 2003)
In 2013, KIPO and the Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization (PHilMech) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding for developing an efficient village-type Ylang Ylang oil extractor, which then underwent evaluation trials in Anao, Tarlac, in order to optimize its performance.
