Ylang–ylang stimulates sexual urges
Ylang–ylang is an endemic plant that grows in the Philippines, Sumatra, Madagascar. Its name means “flower of flowers” because it has a very strong honey-floral scent that has been used in aromatherapy since ancient times. In Indonesia, there is a custom to sprinkle the bed of the newlyweds with ylang flowers because it is believed that the smell encourages sex drive and libido. Today, ylang is often called “sigh of satisfaction” because it encourages sexual desire in people who have lost interest in sex life. It is used as massage oil in aromatherapy.
Ylang-ylang oil is one of the oldest known agents for relieving symptoms of depression, stress, anxiety and psychic exhaustion. Through odorant receptors ylang-ylang transmits revitalizing effect, reduces exhaustion and provides sufficient energy to help you handle your demanding daily routine more easily. If added to bath or used as an inhaler or massage oil, it can boost the general spirits and increase the feeling of happiness.
The essential oil of ylang-ylang is extremely efficient in regulating secretion of sebaceous glands and therefore is very helpful in seborrheic dermatitis. Ylang-ylang oil is dissolved in base oil (jojoba, hazelnut, and almond) and in this form is applied to the skin lesions. Thanks to this regulatory effect on sebaceous glands, the oil nourishes oily, dry, and mature skin equally successful.
