Aromatherapy of the week: Ylang Ylang

Image

Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata) is sometimes distilled in fractions from the blossoms commonly originating in Madagascar. It is called the “flowers of flowers” and carries a sweet, slightly exotic aroma that is used in many perfumes. Benefits may include:

  • uplifting for the blues
  • relaxant
  • calms and releases tension
  • balances skin sebum production
  • hypertension

Ylang Ylang blends best with other florals as well as citruses and woodsy aromas.
