Ylang ylang

Ylang ylang (Cananga odorata) with its sweet, floral, fragrant yet delicate aroma is wonderfully intoxicating, having a calming and relaxing effect, also providing a sense of happiness (it is considered an aphrodisiac!).

Beyond its benefits for the senses, Ylang ylang essential oil is a fantastic addition to skin care as it is extremely effective in maintaining the moisture and oil balance of the skin, and also having a toning effect.

It is particularly beneficial to overly-dry, overly-oily and combination complexions, balancing the secretion of sebum. Ylang ylang essential oil helps with the seborrheic eczema on cheeks and eyebrows and it cures the inflammation, reducing the skin irritation and redness, and treating the infection itself. Being an antiseptic, Ylang ylang prevents wounds from infections and speeds up the healing process.
