Did you know that the flowers of Ylang-ylang had to be harvested in the dark of night? That's because it releases the strongest aroma between the hours of dusk and dawn! An extremely valuable flower in both perfumery and aromatherapy, Ylang-ylang flowers had many traditional uses including decorating the bed of newlywed couples, presumably to inspire a "blissful" wedding night.
Known to promote our emotional wellbeing, diffusing Ylang-ylang essential oil can be both calming and uplifting. Nope, you don't have to be on your honeymoon to enjoy its sweet and delicately floral aroma! Combine with Epsom salts for a luxuriously hot bath at the end of a long day. If you're tired of wearing the same scent as everyone else, dab a little on your wrists for a sweet and feminine fragrance.
Ylang-ylang can also work wonders for your skin and hair. Add a drop into a bowl of hot water and treat your face to a refreshing steam facial. To help regain your hair's natural body and lustre, dilute with your favourite essential oil for a natural deep hair conditioner or hot oil massage!
