Usage tips

Ylang ylang is a very popular aphrodisiac in the West, diffuse it in your bedroom, with 5-8 drops, or make a body oil or cream with 4 drops in 1 tablespoon (15ml) of carrier oil and massage into the chest, shoulders, front and back of the neck, and arms..

Apply 1 drop of ylang ylang oil directly onto the pimple using a cotton bud. Repeat twice daily. The oil helps to draw out any impurities from pimples. (FYI the pimple might get worse before it gets better as the impurities are drawn out faster, but it will heal at a faster rate.)

Make a body oil with 4-5 drops per 15ml carrier oil and massage it onto the area of concern.

High blood pressure
Ylang ylang helps to reduce high blood pressure. Diffuse 5 drops of the oil, or mix 4 drops with 1 tablespoon (15ml) of carrier oil ad add to a bath. Soak for 20 minutes. Repeat no more than 2 times per week.

Calm fast heartbeat
Inhale or make a body oil, slowing a racing heart and reducing stress. Mix 2 drops of ylang ylang oil with 1 teaspoon (5ml) of carrier oil, massage over the heart area. Feel the calming and sedative properties of ylang ylang.

Worry or fear
Diffuse 4 drops of ylang ylang, or inhale it; put 2 drops on a tissue and inhale regularly. Ylang ylang has a sedative action on the autonomic nervous system, and will instil a sense of peace and calm to a worrying or fearful situation.

In my journey to learn about Essential Oils and Aromatherapy over the years, I deep dive into books and courses. I love to educate myself and below you can see some of the books I have used as resources when writing my content. I have tried a lot of different recipes and have been inspired to make some of my own as well. Some of the recipes are from the books. There are so many brilliant authors, and I feel honored to share such great wisdom and knowledge so that we all can live more in harmony with Mother Nature. So share and include this knowledge in your care for yourself and your family and friends. Love Susann
