History of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

Historically, ylang ylang has been used in both the East and the West. In the Philippines, where the flowers grow naturally, healers have used this oil in ointments to treat cuts, burns, and insect and snake bites. In the Molucca islands, people used the oil as the main ingredient in Macassar oil, a hair pomade which later became popular in Victorian England. In Indonesia, the flowers are spread on the bed of newlywed couples as they are considered to be an aphrodisiac.

 

At the beginning of the twentieth-century, French chemists discovered many medicinal purposes for the oil. It became an effective treatment for a number of diseases including malaria, typhus, and intestinal infections. In both eastern and western medicine, the oil was also used for its relaxing properties, helping to calm the effects that stress, anxiety, and anguish can have on the heart.

 

Today, ylang ylang essential oil is still used for its health benefits. Primary uses include treating premenstrual syndrome (PMS), insomnia, high blood pressure, and rapid heartbeat. Its soothing and relaxing properties also make it effective for treating stress-related disorders such as depression, anxiety, and nervous tension. It is also still widely used as an aphrodisiac and sexual stimulant, helping to treat issues like impotence while also generally promoting and supporting sexual and relationship health.

 

How to Use Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

There are a variety of ways that you can use this essential oil to experience the natural health and beauty benefits. You can use this oil for aromatherapy in a diffuser or burner to promote relaxation and emotional balance. Try combining with other essential oils like bergamot and grapefruit to boost your mood and create a more welcoming environment.

 

This essential oil can also be used in the bath to create a more romantic and relaxing atmosphere. You can mix with Epsom salts as well as grapefruit and geranium essential oils. You can also apply the oil topically. Apply to the heart for emotional balance, to the wrists as a perfume, or use as a massage oil for relaxation. To prepare the skin for application, make sure to use a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil to reduce irritation and maximize benefits.

 

With a rich history of providing quality health and beauty benefits, it is no wonder why many people keep Ylang Ylang Essential Oil in their natural medical and beauty kits.
