Essential Oil Spotlight: Ylang Ylang
I have my Tranquility Blend in my diffuser again--for those that missed my FB post last week it is:
4 drops Lavender EO
2 drops Ylang Ylang EO
1 drop Grapefruit EO
The heavenly floral scent of the Ylang Ylang, slightly tempered by the citrus aroma of the Grapefruit, intermingled with Lavender...Heaven is in the air in my house this morning!!
Ylang Ylang (Cananga Odorata) is comes from the steam distillation of fresh flowers from the Ylang Ylang tree, which is native to rain forests on Asian and South Pacific islands.
Ylang Ylang is the basis in Chanel No. 5! Coco Chanel chose it to include in her iconic perfume to give it an elevated scent that was unlike any other perfume available at the time.
So, what is Ylang Ylang good for, besides smelling amazing absolutely marvelous?
Antidepressant - it fights depression by relaxing both the body and soul. It is uplifting to the spirit, creating feelings of hope and joy.
Aphrodisiac - Ylang Ylang is recognized as being a strong aphrodisiac. In fact, in Indonesia it is custom to cover the bed of a newly married couple in Ylang Ylang flowers on their wedding night! It's also a key oil in my newest roll on: Let's Get It On
In the spiritual realm, Ylang Ylang is used to restore the equilibrium between the masculine and feminine energies. It is beneficial for those that are feeling spiritually drained due to it's overall balancing effect.
