The exotic floral scent of Ylang ylang tells of its euphoric and sensual nature, and it is known for its connection to the heart. Ylang ylang has traditionally been used as a beautifying, seductive and relaxing oil. Use sparingly, this heady scent can be overwhelming in excess.

Nature/Essence – Tranquil & Euphoric

Ylang ylang has a softening and balancing effect on the skin, scalp and hair. It can be used to regulate both oily and dry skin to restore a healthy complexion. It is also used in hair and scalp tonics and imparts a lovely floral scent (may not be as appreciated by males!).

Ylang ylang has a calming effect on the heart and breath, and eases muscular tension in the body. It is very helpful during times of stress to ease both physical and mental tension, and is a wonderful soothing oil for the body and mind during premenstrual, menstrual and menopausal times.

Ylang ylang is deeply relaxing, helping to ease nervous tension, anger and frustration and lift a low mood. It is known as an aphrodisiac and helps bring forth positive femininity (in both women and men) and open the heart to aid sensuality and intimacy.

Ylang ylang is wonderful diffused in the home during times of stress, tension or negativity to encourage a sense of peace, happiness and gratitude.
