Ylang-ylang essential oil has a sweet, exotic, and rich floral smell and is slightly yellow in color. The tree is usually found in the rainforests of Asian and South Pacific islands like Indonesia, Philippines, Java, Sumatra, Comoro, Polynesia, and Madagascar. Ylang-ylang oil is a rather interesting essential oil as its distillation varies a bit from most other oils. There are several grades of ylang-ylang essential oil which are extracted at different times during the flower's lengthy distillation. These grades are referred to as extra, I, II, & III.
The therapeutic properties of ylang-ylang oil are antidepressant, antiseborrhoeic, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, hypotensive, nervine and sedative.
Benefits of Ylang-Ylang Oil:
This essential oil has been proven to help regulate the production of sebum, an oily substance secreted by the sebaceous glands, to protect your hair and skin from drying out. Ylang-ylang is well known for being helpful with stress and anxiety. The calming effect of the oil makes it a prefect remedy for insomnia, and is often used to help people drift off into a deep sleep.
