    100% PURE YLANG YLANG ESSENTIAL OIL, Ylang ylang Essential oil is made from the flowers of the herb Cananga odorata genuina. People apply ylang ylang oil to the skin to promote relaxation, kill bacteria, lower high blood pressure, and increase sexual desire. It is also part of a combination spray used to kill head lice.In foods and beverages, ylang ylang oil is used as a flavoring. In manufacturing, it is used as a fragrance for cosmetics and soaps.. Although it's often only thought of as only a nice-smelling oil, the physical and emotional support ylang ylang can offer is much more than just a room deodorizer. It's smells overwhelming floral and sweet...in fact the descriptions I've read of the aroma include words like "intoxicating", "cloying", even "narcotic", which is interesting since historically it's said the original wild flower actually had no aroma at all.


    Ylang ylang essential oil is one of the more fragrant and aromatic essential oils available. It is derived from fresh flower petals from the tropical and large ylang ylang tree (Cananga odorata). Ylang ylang translates to mean “flower of flowers,” and was named that due to its sweet, floral smell.The ylang ylang tree is native to Asian rainforests and South Pacific islands like Indonesia, Java, Philippines, Comoro, Polynesia, and Sumatra. Throughout history, and even today in Indonesia, ylang ylang is common for decorating the bed of newlyweds on their wedding night due to its aphrodisiac and energizing abilities. It has also been used for centuries for its healing properties on skin and its natural thickening effect on hair.


    Ylang ylang oil is said to work with the cardiovascular, endocrine, and hormonal systems, as well as supporting emotional and spiritual balance. Many of these properties and the potential uses for ylang ylang are those that closely link the body to the emotions or the mind, showing very clearly the min-body connection and how Nature can help our body find balance as a whole.


    Primary Benefits, helps balance hormones, promotes healthy skin and hair, lifts mood while having a calming effect.


    Emotional Benefits, on a strictly emotional and spiritual level, ylang ylang essential oil is truly the oil of the heart (the best in my opinion). It can help us connect to our own heart, process things from the heart, and heal emotional traumas. It's also thought to be the oil of the inner child, helping us connect to our own sense of inner joy and being in the moment, as children so easily do. This allows us to play, release bottled up emotions, and move back into our sense of trust in the process of Life.
