Essential oils

Ylang-Ylang

Ylang ylang essential oil is extracted from the flowers of the ylang-ylang tree. The oil is widely used in perfume production but is also a great ingredient to use in skin care, as it is said to neutralize sebum production.

Hair care

Skin care

  • Add 10-20 drops per cup of any homemade skin care product if you’re suffering from acne or oily skin. Use in skin toners, face masks, body oils or any other recipe.
  • Works great in deodorant thanks to its antibacterial properties. You can even use it undiluted as a deodorant, but I suggest adding about 20 drops per cup of any deodorant recipe.

Aromatherapy

  • Can be used in a massage oil, as a bath oil or in an aromatherapy lamp. It’s calming and can help when you’re feeling irritation, bad self-esteem or stress.
