Ylang Ylang (Complete) Oil
Cananga odorata var genuina
Our organically crafted ylang ylang essential oil is steam distilled from the sustainably wildcrafted flowers of the tropical ylang ylang tree growing wild in the forests of Madagascar. We often reach for this essential oil when looking to usher peace, balance, and calm.
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.
