Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Ylang Ylang supports mental function including concentration and memory, and its bright scent profile also boosts moods and lowers symptoms of depression.
Made by distilling the large fragrant blossoms of the ylang ylang flower from Madagascar, this intensely sweet and floral essential oil is described as warming and sensual.
Stimulating the senses through smell, ylang ylang essential oil is uniquely suited to massage oils – with warming floral properties, there is no doubt this oil is for relaxation and rejuvenation rather than addressing aches and pains.
Soothing for the mind as well as the body, this intense essential oil boosts concentration and mental clarity, supporting memory and mood-stability. The powerful aroma is uplifting and reduces symptoms of depression as well as mental blockages, helping you to focus or two unwind.
Ylang Ylang is also used in the unique Kotanical oil blend for the UNWIND rollerball, and in the floral essential oil diffuser blend.
