What is Ylang Ylang Oil?

Ylang Ylang oil, taken from flower petals off large tropical Ylang Ylang trees, can bring a benefit not only to your skin, but also your overall health and mood. The oil is known as the “flower of flowers” because of its sweet, floral scent, and its intoxicating aroma has even found its way into the sought after Chanel No.5 perfume. But Ylang Ylang’s recognizable scent is not its only power, though the smell alone does hold its fair share of benefits. Ylang Ylang oil is also an effective antiseptic, antidepressant, antispasmodic, and sedative, among other beneficial properties to the human body. Ylang Ylang can be used as a natural remedy for endocrine, cardiovascular, reproductive, and digestive systems, in addition to its positive effects on immune health, blood flow, and emotional wellbeing. The floral scent is even considered romantic, and helps to create a calming, relaxing atmosphere after a difficult day.
