Pure essential oils help to balance the skin. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks & Romans used essential oils to conserve their skin's moisture and enhance the appearance of beauty.
Ylang Ylang is extracted from the yellow flowers of a tall tropical tree, which grows up to 20 metres high with large, tender, fragrant flowers. In the production of Ylang Ylang oils, the first portion of the distillate is collected over several hours and is called "extra", and is considered the most superior and expensive grade, traditionally reserved for use in perfumery. The Ylang Ylang oils, grade 1 to 3 are then collected at increasing intervals of time. The first portion has the higher ester content, hence a more pleasant sweet floral odour. Grade 1 is more suitable for use in aromatherapy as a relaxant and anti-depressant as esters are chemical constituents, which have such qualities. Ylang Ylang is useful in reducing rapid breathing and heartbeat and its sedative properties are used to help lower blood pressure. It is highly beneficial for treating PMS and mood swings.
According to Susanne Fischer-Rizzi:
‘The spirit of ylang-ylang usually fits the person naturally drawn to it.
Upon inhaling ylang-ylang with its heavy, seductive, sweet aroma
one can imagine a fiery, tempermental, passionate and
erotic person with an awesome radiance and confidence,
never losing her balance...'
She then says:
‘for men allowing them to become less harsh
towards themselves and others.
It allows them to bring out their feminine side
and arouses their understanding and intuition'.
