Ylang Ylang {Cananga Odorata}

Floral. Exotic. Sweet.

History:

With its intoxicating and complex bouquet, Ylang Ylang has long been prized for its aromatic and perfume properties, and was long used as a fragrant and nourishing hair oil in Europe. Its first medicinal uses, documented in its native Indonesia, were to treat malaria, soothe insect bites, and fight infections.

Source:

We source our Ylang Ylang from a certified organic distiller in Madagascar who has been working with local communities for nearly 30 years to produce this high quality essential oil from the plant's delicate flowers.

Proven Benefits:

While Ylang Ylang is considered to have aphrodisiac properties, the oil is more widely used to combat stress-related disorders such as nervous tension, depression, and insomnia. Because of its moisturizing properties, it has also been used to soften and balance the moisture of the skin and treat split ends in hair.
