Botanical Name: Canaga odorata var genuina
Properties, medicinal use and benefits: Ylang Ylang oil is used to relive anxiety, depression, insomnia and tension. For skin treatments it is used to balance moisture content and reduce oiliness on skin. In Aromatherapy ylang-ylang is one of the most relaxing fragrances to both mind and body. It also slightly lowers blood pressure and servers as a natural antidepressant. However, studies show that the scent is both stimulating and relaxing to brain waves, and also is known for it aphrodisiac properties. Like many natural remedies, it seems to energize or relax one, depending upon the individual's needs. Use it in a bath or massage oil or simply sniff it when you need to feel lively or when you experience insomnia. It balances oil production when used as a hair conditioner, and people in the Philippines and tropical Asia use it to protect their hair from the damages of swimming in salt water. It's good for all skin types, but especially those with combination skin. An evening bath with ylang-ylang oil helps chase away daily tensions and restore calm and balance. Ylang-ylang is very effective when applied before shampooing to treat split ends.
