This essential oil is one of the strongest floral varieties produced from the unusual but beautiful tropical Ylang Ylang flower that can be found in areas such as the Philippines and Madagascar. The most sought-after grade of this oil is said to come from the yellow flower variety that is picked in the morning.
Ylang Ylang Oil is mainly used in aromatherapy because it has a calming nature whilst being non-sedative, making it useful to calm and destress whilst also boosting positive vibes, happy emotions and the ability to help increase libido. These characteristics make it the perfect oil for a romantic night in for you and your partner on special occasions such as an anniversary, a wedding evening or Valentine’s Day.
For a Sensual Massage, dilute a few drops of Ylang Ylang oil into your preferred carrier oil (you won't need much as this is a very potent essential oil).
Sprinkle a few drops into a warm bath and soak whilst enjoying the aroma (if you really want to set the mood, turn the lights down low and light some tea lights around the bathroom making sure they are away from anything that could catch fire of course ). You could also try a few different blends of oils such as:
Relaxing bath blend: 3 drops Ylang Ylang, 2 drops Sandalwood and 2 drops Pine.
Girlie bath blend: 3 drops Ylang Ylang, 2 drops Sandalwood and 2 drops Jasmine.
Otherwise, simply add the oil to a diffuser or oil burner and fill your room with the sensual and relaxing aromatherapy benefits of Ylang Ylang.
Don't think however that this floral and aromatic oil is only good for a romantic evening! Ylang Ylang essential oil is extremely versatile and has been known to help reduce feelings of anxiety, depression, insomnia and stress thanks to its aromatherapeutic qualities that help to relax and uplift the mind and the body. The use of this oil has also been linked to helping to ease cramps as well as poor circulation. Ylang Ylang is an oil that will suit anyone who finds its aroma pleasant and therefore can receive the positive effects that can be harnessed from the essential oil itself and it is known as a ladies favourite for the beautiful perfumed scent often used in the perfumery industry.
