Domaine de L'Ylang Ylang - Essential oils, Massage oils and Aromatherapy

On a beautifully landscaped and remote site at the foot of Anse Jonchée, 15 km from the Airport, is the Domaine de L'Ylang Ylang.

Ylang Ylang, 'the flower of flowers' is cultivated on the hillside of the domaine. The flowers are picked first thing in the morning, before the first rays of the sun and sent to the distillery. As the flowers are heated up in a container of water, the atomatic vapour travels along a network of tubes for condensation.

Famous for the distillation and export of delicate perfumes and essential oils, a visit to this exquisite "domaine" will awaken your senses to the the fragrance of geraniums, ylang ylang, lavender and citronella.

Tip: if you are into aromatic stuff, this place is worth a visit. Essential oils, massage oils and other aromatherapeutic products are on sale there. Entrance fees apply.
