One of the many wonderful aspects of ylang-ylang oil is its ability to promote relaxation. Studies have revealed its capacity for lowering both heart rate and blood pressure, making it a fantastic addition to stress-relief diffuser blends.
Ylang-ylang oil is widely recognized for its soothing, romantic, and aphrodisiac properties.

Studies published by Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine demonstrated that ylang-ylang oil contains high concentrations of the compound linalool, which has been shown to ease anxiety and depression symptoms as well as help those suffering from insomnia sleep better. It can even relax both body and mind simultaneously!
Since ylang-ylang contains both sedative and euphoric properties, it’s wise to combine its use with a carrier oil when applying directly to the skin. A carrier oil will dilute its potency making it suitable for everyday use. Try mixing some drops with your preferred jojoba, sweet almond oil, or avocado oil and massage them into your skin to experience its mood-boosting benefits!
