This Ylang Ylang is from the Comores Island in the Indian Ocean, where the climate and soil is ideal for excellent quality Ylang.
Ylang Ylang (cananga odorata) means "flower of flowers" and is extracted by steam distillation from the flowers of a tropical tree.
Suitable for a variety of conditions, it is however more popular for emotional conditions such as anger, fear, guilt, self-esteem, confidence, stubbornness, shyness etc.
Aromatherapy/Home Use example:
For a sensual blend, mix 2 drops of Ylang Ylang and 2 drops of Sandalwood in 10ml of Sweet Almond oil.
Yang Ylang is one of the most popular essential oils for diffusing. It has a wonderfully exotic aroma in its own right but blends well with Sandalwood, Bergamot, Rose, Jasmine, May Chang or Sweet Orange.
Safety: Possible sensitisation in hypersensitive individuals. Use in moderation and low doses, as the heady aroma can cause headaches or nausea in hypersensitive individuals.
