ENCHANTING YLANG-YLANG

August 16, 2017

Discovery

Ylang-Ylang Essential Oil, pronounced ee-lahng-ee-lahng, originates from the tropical rainforests of the South Pacific and Asia—and is now grown and distilled at Young Living’s Ecuadorean farm. Originally discovered in Indonesia and also native to the Philippines and Malaysia, Ylang-Ylang’s richly floral aroma comes from the yellow flowers of the tropical Cananga tree. Historical uses of the aromatic star-shaped chartreuse flowers include spreading them on the beds of newlywed couples in Indonesia; strung together on leis in the Philippines; and in Madagascar, the extracted oil of the flower is a common flavoring in ice cream.

 

Uses

Daily Ritual

Ylang-Ylang Essential Oil is often used in perfumes and is classified as a “heart note” because it emerges just as the top notes begin to dissipate. It’s a common ingredient in skin and hair products as well. Here are a few ways to use Young Living Ylang-Ylang Essential Oil in your daily routine:

  • Rub on your wrists and neck to leave a calming, floral fragrance you can smell throughout the day.

  • Use Ylang-Ylang’s moisturizing properties as part of your skin care regimen by adding the oil to a neutral lotion or non-cosmogenic carrier oil.

  • Add a couple of drops to coconut oil for a deep-conditioning hair treatment that will leave hair smelling floral and sweet.

  • Put a few drops into a hot bath to unwind after a long day.

 

Benefits

Why Ylang-Ylang?

Due to its unique and powerful aroma, Ylang-Ylang Essential Oil is often used as an ingredient in fragrances and cosmetic products. 

 

The essential oil can also be added to beauty and skin products or to carrier oils to apply directly to the skin or hair for a soothing treatment.

 

Other Benefits Include:

  • Ylang-Ylang makes a soothing, aromatic addition to bathwater for a relaxing soak. 

  • Inhaled either directly from the bottle or from a diffuser can offer a natural and pleasant way to unwind. 

  • Add a couple of drops to your favorite tea for an invigorating morning beverage.
