What is Ylang-Ylang?
Ylang-ylang is an essential oil that is derived from the flowers of the cananga tree and is used in many perfumes. In some exotic locations, because it is considered an aphrodisiac, it is part of traditional wedding ceremony rituals. Its scent is similar to jasmine.
Ylang-ylang is native to island areas like Java, Sumatra, and Madagascar. The petals of the flowers range from pink to yellow and are very fragrant.
What Can Ylang-Ylang Do?
Ylang-ylang has many properties that make it perfect for aromatherapy. It has the ability to create feelings of calm, end feelings of depression, relieve anxiety, calm feelings of shock, curb anger, relieve insomnia, help with hyperactivity in children, increase sexual desire, and promote spiritual balance.
Additionally, this additive to your customized spa treatment is good for helping some common medical ailments. It can help with asthma, headache, diarrhea, oily skin and hair, and acne. It is also said to help with hair growth.
Spa Treatments Using Ylang-Ylang
This essential oil is blended with another carrier oil and applied to the skin during massage. It can also be used during skin care treatments. Because it is non-toxic and non-irritating, it can be inhaled or applied to the skin, but overexposure can cause headaches in extremely sensitive people.
