Ylang Ylang is widely known as a ‘sexy time’ oil but does it have other benefits beyond the bedroom…?
The answer of course is yes!
It even sounds sexy right?!
Ylang Ylang is an oil you can turn to when you want to feel happy, centered and relaxed. Apply to wrists or inhale straight from the bottle, perfect for complimenting any meditation or journalling practice!
According to the Emotions and Essential Oils book Ylang Ylang is the oil of the inner child. Ylang Ylang can help you bring more joy and child like play to your life (who doesn’t need some of that?!). It can also be used to support you emotionally when moving through any trauma, especially from your childhood. It helps emotions to flow naturally through the body & supports the heart.
Pass me a bottle….. ploise!!
Growing, picking and distilling Ylang Ylang is a pretty long and laborious process. Really? Yup really!
doTERRA source Ylang Ylang from growers in Madagascar and it can take 3-4 years for the tree to grow and be ready for the flowers to be harvested. Then once ready, the flowers can only be harvested from December to March each year! How epic is mama nature?
Ylang Ylang blends well with Bergamot, Geranium, Wild Orange, Grapefruit, Tangerine, Lemon, Sandalwood, Majoram or Vetiver.
