For March’s oil of the month, we have Ylang-Ylang Essential Oil, which is known for its rich, tropical fragrance. Native to the countries surrounding the Indian Ocean, ylang-ylang is a key ingredient in one of the most famous perfumes in the world—Chanel No. 5. Its heady aroma makes it the perfect addition to soaps and cosmetics, and evidence indicates it may also be effective at reducing stress and anxiety. This mood-boosting essential oil will take your winter-blues away in no time!
To use Ylang-Ylang Essential Oil in aromatherapy you have a few options. Add a few drops to a diffuser to permeate the room with this oil’s heady aroma. Alternatively, place a few drops of ylang-ylang into your bath or favored products. If you wish to use ylang-ylang essential oil topically, always make sure to dilute with a carrier oil, such as jojoba or coconut!
