Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Cananga odorata

Ylang Ylang was used by the islanders of tropical Asia to treat insect bites, inflamed skin, protect their hair and ward off fever or infection.

It was first used commercially by the Victorians in Macassar hair oil, an early conditioner and growth stimulator. Ylang Ylang Essential Oil comes from a small tropical tree whose name means 'Flower of Flowers' and is regarded as a natural aphrodisiac. Since the flower has so sensual a fragrance, it has always been used to symbolise love.
