Ylang Ylang Essential Oil, Extra Grade


Ylang ylang essential oil’s beautiful floral aroma can uplift even the most medicinal blends, bringing an air of refinement and beauty.  It is very lovely when diffused at night before sleeping, bringing sweet dreams and a deep regenerating sleep.

When inhaled, it relieves anger, rage, depression, insomnia, tension, stress, fear, anxiety, low self-esteem, shock, and panic.  It relaxes the nervous system and brings consciousness to the present moment.

It is an aphrodisiac for many people.

It has an affinity for the root, navel, solar plexus, and heart energy centers.

It especially activates the senses of smell and taste, clearing emotional debris, and helping to access a child-like mental space, free of judgement (“beginner’s mind”).

Observations and Anecdotal Information

Most consider ylang yang essential oil to be an emotional relaxer and mood enhancer.

It is commonly used for restoring hair regrowth due to hormone imbalances or stress reactions.  It can be added in small amounts to shampoos or hair conditioners for this purpose.

I would like to attend to a lesser known characteristic;  it is also a potent urinary system tonic that can strengthen the bladder and kidneys, and restore adrenal balance.

Ylang ylang is a superb endocrine regulator.   I include it in my custom blends for balancing hormonal issues, especially PMS and menopausal symptoms.
