Essential Oil Spotlight: Ylang Ylang

Ylang Ylang Flower

Ylang Ylang, while famed for its exquisite fragrance and long history as a component of perfumes, has much to offer therapeutically. It is an effective mood uplifting agent as well as having calming properties. Ylang Ylang essential oil is derived from the star-shaped flowers of the tropical Ylang Ylang tree and is used extensively in making perfumes and in aromatherapy. Similar to Jasmine, Ylang Ylang is considered an aphrodisiac and has been used for centuries in religious and wedding ceremonies. In aromatherapy, Ylang Ylang is used to lessen tension and stress and to promote a positive outlook. Ylang Ylang is frequently used in luxurious hair and skin products for its scent and nourishing and protective properties. Due to Ylang Ylang’s powerful scent, only a small amount is needed for application and diffusion. Ylang Ylang blends well with Bergamot, Geranium, Grapefruit, and Vetiver.
