steam distilled from flowers
Ylang Ylang means "flower of flowers", and these beautiful buds are sprinkled over the beds of newlywed couples to signify this little flower's status as an aphrodisiac. The sweet, floral scent of Ylang Ylang is also a de-stressor and antidepressant, relaxing both the body and the mind. It drives away sadness and induces feelings of joy and love. As a matter of fact, Oriental medicine considers Ylang Ylang to be a calming heart tonic. Ylang Ylang's smell is so popular that it has been included in some of the worlds most famous perfumes, and is a wonderful oil to include in your own blends. It goes especially well with oils like Sandalwood or Lemongrass, but can just as easily be used on its own.
