Ylang-ylang Essential Oil


Ylang Ylang essential oil comes from an plant that is native to Indonesia, named the Cananga Odorata tree. An unusual word that actually means 'flower of flowers and has been used since ancient times throughout asia.

A popular and versitile oil that is known to be great for uplifting mood, a mild sedative, and with some aphrodesiac qualities too. The immune system can make use of certain compounds within the Ylang Ylang flower, which is one reason as to why it's been used for such a long time and has been used to ward off sickness during times of flu.

Negative emotions are said to dissipate upon smelling the scent of the Ylang Ylang flower that is also well known for romance and love - a libido increasing wonder that may find a good home placed or diffused around the bed.

Calming the nervous system is another reported quality of Ylang Ylang ( we told you it's versitile! ), as confirmed by recent studies. 1 drop rubbed over the heart can reduce symptoms of anxiety and stress and even lower blood pressure. Diffusing is fine too, for a similar effect.

Ylang Ylang blends well with lavender, frankincense, bergamot, jasmine or rose essential oils.
