YlangYlang is reminiscent of Jasmine in aroma; the “flower of flowers” is sweet and exotically floral. It is known in Asia as an antidepressant and generally stabilizes mood swings.
It is well documented as an aphrodisiac. YlangYlang mixed with Jasmine or Rose is used to treat sexual difficulties, especially those stemming from lack of confidence.
In a facial oil or cream, it can help balance sebum production and is most helpful to oily skin and fight the bacteria that often contribute to acne.
YlangYlang has been used to lower blood pressure, ease muscle spasms, and treat PMS and menopause symptoms.
