100% Pure Organic Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata) Oil
Aromatherapy: To relax and sensitise, add a few drops of Ylang Ylang Oil to your electric diffuser, and wait for the romantic aroma to seduce the room. If you do not have a diffuser, add a few drops to a wax burner, steam bowl or even just your bath!
Cold and flu: In traditional medicine, Ylang Ylang Oil was used to reduce fevers and lessen flu symptoms. To soothe sinuses and relieve congestion, add a few drops to a bowl of boiled water and inhale the steam. To ease a headache, add a few drops to a roller bottle filled with Macadamia Oil and roll directly onto your temples.
Hair mask: One of the earliest Western uses of Ylang Ylang was in a hair tonic for men. Ylang Ylang Oil stimulates oil production in the body, making it great for dry hair or skin. Add a few drops to some Coconut Oil for a beautiful moisturising hair mask. Coconut Oil is a great carrier oil as it is so moisturising, but remember that it is solid at room temperature, so heat it gently while you wait for the oils to infuse!
Insect repellent: A lesser known use for Ylang Ylang Oil is to deter bugs! You can fill your home with the smell from an electric diffuser or dip the end of an incense stick into the oil. You could also create your own soap to create a personal insect repellent that smells amazing!
Insomnia: If you have trouble sleeping, put a few drops of Ylang Ylang Oil onto your pillow! It is a natural sedative, so will help you to drift off, and its anti-anxiety will help you have sweet dreams.
Massage Oil: Ylang Ylang Oil is already a popular ingredient in many sensual massage oils, so why not make your own? Jojoba Oil is a fabulous carrier for this because it has barely any scent and is extremely slippery! Add a few drops of Ylang Ylang Oil to a carrier oil or your favourite massage oil to enhance sensitivity and relieve sore muscles.
Perfume: True to its most well-known commercial use in Chanel No.5, you could go all Coco and create your own! A few drops of Ylang Ylang Oil in a roller or spray bottle along with some Almond Oil for a carrier and voila! You have yourself a natural, low cost perfume.
