Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

January 08, 2018

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is well known for its uses in history as an aphrodisiac and for it's mood enhancing abilities. When I first heard about Ylang Ylang in college these were the references I would come to remember about the oil and expected it to smell like roses or another flora aroma. But what I didn't expect was a unique pungent aroma similar to a soiled diaper. Although the aroma is strong, this oil has many benefits and uses!
