Ylang ylang is a delightful oil loved the world over for its heady, floral aroma. A night-blooming flower pollinated by moths, it produces a supremely calming oil. Classically used as an aphrodisiac, its properties are heavy, sweet, and slow. It also helps address physical and emotional issues that may interfere with other healthy life functions.
Ylang ylang encourages a parasympathetic (restful, non-stressed) response in your nervous system, from your head down to your toes. The oil has been shown in research to lower blood pressure, improve circulation, slow a rapid heart rate, lift depression, calm anxiety, and improve sleep. Its action is like a weighted blanket: calming the nerves by weighing down frenetic energy and de-escalating anger by lowering the physiological response to fear. Therefore, ylang ylang could be appropriate for complimenting programs designed for PTSD and Sensory Processing Disorders.
As an aphrodisiac, all genders benefit from this sensuous oil which has been traditionally used to enhance arousal & fertility for centuries. Diffusing ylang ylang oil offers the potential to increase intimate joy in your life.
Energetics: Reduce Vata & Pitta, increase Kapha. Earthy & sweet. Temper the flame and settle the frenzy. In the case of mood issues due to excess Kapha, a blend containing more warming & drying oils may be more appropriate, such as Sunbeam’s Classic Aromatherapy: Lavender, Sage, and Ylang Ylang or Rose Geranium, Ylang Ylang, & Patchouli.
Bottom line: Slow down. Enjoy life, enjoy love.
