About: Ylang Ylang essential oil has a unique floral aroma that is exotic and feminine. A famous aphrodisiac often used in perfumes, Ylang Ylang is used to support emotions and relaxation.

The Ylang Ylang tree bears shiny, persistent leaves and can grow up to 20 meters in the wild. Its flowers, yellow when mature, are steam distilled to produce the essential oil. The process of steam-distilling Ylang Ylang can produce three different types of essential oil depending on the process’s length of time.

Common Uses: To promote sleep and relaxation, mix Ylang Ylang and Lavender together in a diffuser or lotion. Ylang Ylang can also be added to skin care preparations as a tonic for the skin.
