Y FOR YLANG YLANG
The oil extracted from the ylang ylang flower was used by islanders of tropical Asia to cure insect bites and to take care of their skin and hair. Since it has a wonderful, sweet fragrance, it is now used in body massage for its double benefit of aromatherapy and relaxing qualities.
In a bucket of tepid water, add 5 drops of ylang ylang oil and bathe with it after cleansing. It helps remove stress and brings about a feeling of well-being.
This oil should not be used for children below 12 years of age or by those who have breathing problems or asthma.
