31 Essential Oils in 31 Days Series: Day 30 Ylang Ylang

Day 30--Ylang Ylang!

Ylang Ylang is a sweet, rich and deep floral with a tinge of a spicy overtone. We love it but do we say it? Pronounced EE-Lang EE-Lang and originally from the Philippines, cananga odorata, is derived from flowers and used aromatically.

Ylang Ylang is spread over the beds of newlywed couples in Indonesia. It is known for its ability to uplift mood yet at the same time for its calming properties. I love to diffuse it with Bergamot essential oil at bedtime. Sweet dreams for everyone and my room smells heavenly!

Ylang Ylang can be applied directly on the area of concern or to reflex points. It can also be diffused or inhaled as well as taken in capsules.

Caution: Not for children under 6 years of age.
