Non-toxic, though it may cause skin irritation or be sensitizing, especially with young children. Use in low dilution when applying to the skin, such as in bath or massage oils. Tisserand and Young recommend maximum topical use of 0.8%. Do not use on inflamed skin, hypersensitive skin, diseased or damaged skin or on dermatitis. Ylang Ylang can lead to headaches and nausea with people sensitive to the oil. The floral, sweet scent of Ylang Ylang is amazing in small quantities, but if overused it can cause headaches and nausea.
