“Ylang-Ylang is intensely sweet. Soothes away the frustrations of life. Excitingly exotic. Stimulates the senses. Dispels jeolousy.” Valerie Ann Worwood, in Aromantics, Pan Books, 1987.

Ylang Ylang essential oil has a wide variety of benefits and uses. For example, these range from medicinal to romantic. Interestingly, in Indonesia the blooms are scattered over the beds of newly wed couples. This is because  the fragrance is said to have a calming and euphoric effect. Similarly, in the Philippines, it is often used in salves and balms to treat wounds, burns, insect and snake bites.

Notably, the oil has a history of use as a hair treatment during Victorian times in England.

It is a tall tropical tree, about 20 meters high. The tree has large, fragrant pink, mauve or yellow flowers. Widely cultivated in Java, Sumatra, Reunion, and Madagascar. Notably, the name means ‘flower of flowers.’
