Ylang Ylang (Complete) Oil
Cananga odorata var genuina
The rich, heavy floral scent of ylang ylang essential oil is exotic, sweet, and sensual. It’s well known for its intoxicating, relaxing effects—which quiet the mind, heart, and body. In massage oils, ylang ylang can help muscles release years of stored tension, and can open the heart to deep healing and bliss. Ylang ylang essential oil is strong; just a drop or two is usually enough. (Too much can become overwhelming.) Our sustainably wildcrafted ylang ylang essential oil is steam distilled from trees in the forests of Madagascar.
Benefits and uses
The freshly picked, honeyed blossoms of the tall Cananga odorata var. genuina tree create a richly floral, sweet, sensual, slightly balsamic essential oil. Along with providing balance to the system, ylang ylang essential oil is often used to help with pain and inflammation management and to help reduce the presence of unwanted bacterial activity. Ylang ylang essential oil is cooling and soothing with lovely, mildly sedative properties, making it so helpful for sleep support. Try blending ylang ylang and lavender essential oils to usher a good night’s rest. Ylang ylang essential oil is powerful and should be used sparingly in aromatherapy blends to help avoid headache or nausea due to its high potency. When using only a drop or two per 1 ounce of carrier, this essential oil makes a blissful addition to moisturizing skin care blends, relaxing massage blends, or bath salt blends.
Emotionally and energetically, ylang ylang essential oil relaxes and calms. It encourages feelings of mild euphoria and promotes sensual awakening.
