Ylang ylang (Cananga odorata) essential oil has a sweet, soft, flowery fragrance that has made it a romantic favorite. It grows in full or partial sun, and prefers the acidic soils of its native rainforest habitat. In Indonesia, the petals are often spread on the bed of newlywed couples.
Grown and distilled from trees at Young Living’s farm in Ecuador, Ylang Ylang oil is extracted by steam distilling the star-shaped flowers found on the tropical ylang ylang tree. With its rich, floral scent, Ylang Ylang essential oil has become a popular element in luxurious and indulgent perfumes and skin care products.
Ylang Ylang benefits include its nourishing properties, as well as its rich, romantic scent, which is why you might find this oil in high-end hair care products and spa treatments. Add it to a steamy bath, creamy moisturizer, or nourishing homemade hair mask for an easy at-home spa day.
Ylang ylang is extremely effective in calming and bringing about a sense of relaxation, and it may help with releasing feelings of anger, tension, and nervous irritability. It is the active ingredient in a popular motion sickness medication.
Young Living Essential Oils Ylang Ylang has an approximate ORAC of 1,300,478 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
