The benefits of diffusing Ylang Ylang essential oil

Let the tropical scent transform your home into a calming          rainforest

Distilled from the flowers of trees native from the tropical rainforest, Ylang Ylang essential oil is a light and floral compound known for its exotic and sensual scent.

Used for centuries for its unique and rich scent, the notes of Ylang Ylang are often found in perfume, religious ceremonies, weddings but also in aromatherapy where it is recognised for a myriad of other benefits on the mind and the body.

While it can be used topically to promote glowing skin and healthy hair, diffusing Ylang Ylang essential oil has a special effect on the mind. Sensual, calming and uplifting, the atmosphere always feels completely different when filled with the essence of the yellow flowers.

Discover how the invigorating and mesmerising aroma of Ylang Ylang essential oil can change your environment for the better with our guide on Ylang Ylang essential oil diffuser benefits.

Here our most loved benefits of diffusing ylang ylang essential oil.

Brighten-up the mood 

One of the main attributes of Ylang Ylang essential oil is often associated with its natural and effortless ability to boost the mood and untangle tensions. 

When inhaled through diffusion, the rich scent has a direct effect on the brain which hinders negative emotions such as anger or self-doubt and promotes positive thoughts. Diffusing Ylang Ylang essential oil enhances awareness, confidence and helps intensify the feeling of self-esteem and love.

The delicate floral scent accompanies you during moments of self-care and guides the mind to let go of sadness and distress. Free from any sorrows, the mind can focus on itself, rebuilding self-esteem and choosing happiness.

Our MĀ Secret: Diffuse ten drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil. Take a moment to acknowledge your mindset and the feelings flowing through the body. Let the mind slowly let go of negative emotions. Breathe out and smile.

Let go of stress

The sedative agent present in Ylang Ylang essential oil helps trigger a natural and serene response when you start noticing feelings of stress bubbling. Through centuries, the concentrated compound has been used to bring calm to the mind and ground emotions when wheels of anxiety start spinning a little too fast.

When inhaled, the fruity aroma signals to the brain to reduce levels of cortisol in the body, 

which is known as the stress hormone. Slowly the heart rate comes down and blood pressure is finally able to stabilise. As soon as the body feels more at peace, the mind can also fully relax and let go of any stress.

Enhance sensual feelings

Commonly used in Asia during wedding ceremonies, Ylang Ylang essential oil is a well-known natural aphrodisiac which allows you to reconnect with your sensuality and bring you closer to your partner.

The flower of love is adept at enhancing cheerfulness and uplifting feelings. However, it creates even more space in the mind as it inhibits sadness and feelings of stress. With worries and anxiety out of the way, the mind is able to make room for productive thought and regain more self-confidence. This is the space where sensuality can flourish freely and romance is able to fully blossom. 

Next time you notice your mind is no longer able to fully let go and your sentimental life needs a bit of a boost, diffuse a few drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil. Let the amorous feelings reappear and lead the way.

Create a delicate home ambience

The scent of Ylang Ylang flowers is delicate and pleasant but also deep enough to release a long-lasting aroma and bring the family together.

In addition to soothing the mind, it promotes feelings of safety and comfort allowing different minds to feel more open to connect and exchange. Relaxed, everyone is then more confident and able to socialise, strengthening the emotional bonds that connect friends and family.

Say no to unwanted house guests

While the scent of Ylang Ylang is, without a doubt, very pleasant to humans it acts differently on insects and can be a good solution to keep your house naturally free of them. 

Especially powerful against mosquitoes, diffusing Ylang Ylang essential oils creates a natural barrier and makes your home a safe environment for you and your loved one as it sends a gentle signal to small creatures, harmlessly driving them away.
