Ylang Ylang essential oil is extracted from the star-shaped flowers of the Cananga tree (Cananga odorata) which is native to India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Australia. Ylang Ylang has a sweet floral scent with a musky undertone. Ylang Ylang has been used for centuries in religious spaces and wedding ceremonies. Ylang Ylang essential oil is often used for relaxation and for a feeling of luxury.
Ylang Ylang essential oil is perfect for diffusing. Simply add three or four drops of Ylang Ylang to your diffuser. The scent also combines well with fruit and other floral fragrances. The fragrance can also be harnessed by adding a few drops of Ylang Ylang to water to create a perfume or body mist. Ylang Ylang essential oil is also a great addition to your relaxation routine. Add a couple of drops of the oil to your bath water or combine with a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut and use as a massage oil or deep conditioner.
