Emotional & spiritual benefits
Ylang Ylang is a unique oil that exudes romance and relaxation. Its calming properties help to allay feelings of negativity, fear, anxiety and dismay. It is perfect for promoting happiness and joy. It can reduce stress and tension and bring an overstimulated or excitable mind back in balance. It is a lovely bedroom oil, instilling confidence, self-love and desirability.

Cosmetic benefits
With its notable ability to balance skin sebum, Ylang Ylang is a versatile oil and can be used for most skin types, including dry, oily, combination and normal. It keeps complexion looking fresh, supple and youthful. It is a healing oil, so also helpful for minimising blemishes. In haircare, it is a stimulating tonic to the hair and scalp and is thought to promote lustre, shine, encourage healthy growth and nourish where there is dryness and flakiness.

Formulation types
Ylang Ylang’s exotic and feminine aroma makes it popular in perfumery and essential oil blending. It can be used in face and body creams, butters and lotions, serums, body oils, bath products, sensual massage oils and balms, face masks and scrubs.
