Uses of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Ylang Ylang essential oil (Cananga odorata) can generate a sense of calm and relaxation that is perfect to use when we feel stressed. It is sourced from a beautiful, drooping, yellow bloom found on the cananga tree. It is not only extremely effective in promoting calmness, Ylang Ylang also helps in getting rid of negative feelings when feelings of anger are released. Ylang Ylang essential oil also promotes luxuriant hair particularly in Asia where it has a long history in skin- and hair-care products.
