Welcome back to the Yuana Aroma blog. Today we discuss a star player in the Yuana Aroma arsenal of luxury aroma essential oils, Ylang-ylang essential oil.

Ylang-ylang essential oil is made from the steam distillation of the greenish-yellow ylang-ylang flowers of the Cananga odorata genuina tree. These trees are normally found on the tropical islands of the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean like Madagascar, Micronesia, Polynesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia etc. The ylang-ylang essential oil smell has often been described as a heady aroma with fresh, rich fruity, floral tones. The varied chemical constituents give this oil its sedative, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, insecticidal, and stimulant properties.

What Are the Benefits of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil?

  1. Ylang-ylang Essential Oil Has Sedative Properties: A compound called Linalool present in this oil has a calming effect and studies have shown that the oil when topically applied on the skin along with a carrier oil, or used as a diffuser oil, exhibits anti-anxiety and antidepressant properties. Hence, it is used in treating depression, high blood pressure, and anxiety.

  2. Ylang-ylang Essential Oil has Anti-Fungal, Anti-Bacterial and Anti-Inflammatory Properties: A compound called geranyl acetate in this essential oil is known to act as an anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agent thus preventing fungal and other skin infections. Studies have shown its anti-inflammatory nature too which helps in improving inflamed facial skin when a few drops are mixed with a carrier oil and applied.

  3. Ylang-ylang Essential Oil has Insecticidal Properties: Ylang-ylang is used by native communities as an insect repellent and insecticide. They also use dried ylang-ylang flowers for the treatment of malarial and asthmatic symptoms.

  4. Ylang Ylang Essential Oil has Aphrodisiacal Properties: Where the ylang-ylang trees grow locally, the flowers have been used as a libido enhancer and together with its anxiety-reducing properties, it is used as an aphrodisiac even though the reports are only anecdotal.

  5. Ylang Ylang Essential Oil Encourages Hair Growth: Studies have shown revitalized hair growth when a few drops of ylang-ylang essential oil are mixed with a carrier oil like coconut oil or almond oil and applied to the scalp and hair.

  6. Ylang Ylang Essential Oil Ensures Good Sleep: Pillow Mists and Sprays containing ylang ylang have shown that it can induce deep sleep, ensure peace within and help you feel refreshed on waking up.
