Ylang Ylang Organic 10ml (Cananga odorata)
Sensual, balancing and uplifting
Historically regarded as a natural aphrodisiac
Often used in hair care to help promote growth and shine
Ylang Ylang Organic essential oil has an extremely attractive fragrance when used on its own - although if used too strongly the perfume can be overbearing and may occasionally cause headaches in a small percentage of people. Always use well diluted in a carrier oil or base preparation for skin application (to a maximum of 1%). Ylang Ylang Essential Oil comes from a small tropical tree whose name means 'Flower of Flowers' and is regarded as a natural aphrodisiac.
Ylang Ylang is useful for application in stressful situations and in general skin care, particularly for oily skin.
It's an appropriate oil to use in hair rinses thanks to its excellent hair tonic properties. Historically it has also been used for its intrinsic aphrodisiac properties. A few drops in one of our wide range of vaporisers or burners and some romantic candlelight will get you and your partner in just the right mood...
To diffuse in a traditional burner, simply fill dish with water and add a few drops of oil on top before lighting the candle. For electrical fragrance diffusers, follow instructions given by the manual. For massage: dilute in a carrier oil and gently massage over the skin. Add a few drops to a handkerchief or inhale directly from the bottle if you are on the go. Dilute in distilled water and pour into spray bottle for an all-natural room fragrance.
Baths: blend 5-8 drops in a teaspoon of carrier oil and add to bath
Massages: add 2-3 drops of essential oils to 1 tablespoonful of carrier oil
