Ylang Ylang essential oil, traditionally known for its romantic appeal, has a calming and balancing aroma for a smooth and happy heart. It also promotes the appearance of healthy-looking skin and shiny hair.
Originally native to Southeast Asia, Ylang Ylang is now also grown in Madagascar, the Comoro Islands, and Ecuador. Belonging to the custard apple family, a mature tree can reach a height of up to 39 feet and produce thousands of vibrant, fragrant, yellow-green blooms. Traditionally used in hair formulas to promote shiny, lustrous hair, Ylang Ylang essential oil has a sweet, floral aroma that was historically believed to balance yin and yang. A common ingredient in perfumes and personal care products, Ylang Ylang essential oil adds a luxurious and romantic aroma, while also providing benefits to skin and hair. Ylang Ylang was one of Founder D. Gary Young’s favorite essential oils.
