YLANG YLANG ESSENTIAL OIL
Scientific name: Canaga odorata
Family: Annonaceae, custard apple
BEST FOR BLEMISHED, OILY, COMBINATION, AND MATURE SKIN
Ylang ylang essential oil is distilled from the Cananga tree's greenish-yellow, starfish-shaped flowers produced year-round. The fresh blossoms have traditionally been used to infuse coconut oil with their heavy fragrance. Ylang ylang is antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-seborrheic. Best for blemished, dry, mature, normal-combination, oil-rich and stressed skin, ylang oil is used to treat the following skin conditions: acne, broken capillaries, scars, seborrhea and varicose veins. Because it is bactericidal, ylang ylang also functions well as a deodorant. Classified as a euphoric, this cooling oil is calming, relaxing, sedative and a potent aphrodisiac. One of the most masculine essential oils, ylang oil is used for aggression, anger, anxiety, depression, emotional and mental fatigue, hypertension, palpitations, panic, sensuality, shyness, stress and tension.
