Suggested Usage (10 years & up)
- 10 drops Ylang Ylang in ½ cup of Dead Sea Salt in a warm bath will help chase away daily tensions and restore calm and balance.
- Diffuse 10-12 drops in a cool mist Essential Oil diffuser.
- Place 1-2 drops on a tissue, cotton ball, or in the palms of the hands and inhale.
- Mix 20 drops with 4 ounces distilled water in a cobalt blue glass or PET plastic bottle, shake well and mist into the environment as desired.
- Add 10-20 drops to cream or lotion. Ylang Ylang has the extraordinary ability to relax facial muscles. We pack a lot into these muscles – anger, hate, rage, and frustration. We “keep face,” and grind our teeth. These expressions eventually become plainly visible in facial contours and create a permanent facial landscape. The most beneficial cosmetic treatment is a relaxed face. Here, a massage with Ylang Ylang works wonders. It is also very effective for tension headaches. If the fragrance seems too sweet, tone it down with orange or lemon.
- Non-toxic, non-irritant, a few cases of sensitization reported.
- Use in moderation, since its heady scent can cause headaches and nausea.
- Keep out of reach of children and pets.
- If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your healthcare provider prior to use.
