doTERRA Oil of the month
Our resident doTERRA specialist Julie Barfoot suggests…
If you want an essential oil that will make you giddy with LOVE it is Ylang Ylang! It is deliciously sweet, rich and spicy and has a truly seductive aroma. Ylang ylang essential oil is considered an aphrodisiac and for this reason has been used for centuries in religious and wedding ceremonies.
Ylang Ylang essential oil is steam distilled from the star shaped flowers of the tropical ylang ylang tree. doTERRA ethically sources ylang ylang oil from growers and distillers on the island of Nosy Be, off the northwest coast of Madagascar where some of the highest quality ylang ylang is grown in the world.
Ylang ylang has many wonderful benefits. It can be used for relaxation, to lessen tension and promote a positive outlook. Due to its powerful scent only a small amount is needed for application and diffusion. Emotionally, ylang ylang is a powerful ‘heart’ oil. Modern day society often reveres the workings of the mind over the heart yet ‘heart knowing’ and accessing our intuition is also an essential part of the soul. Ylang ylang helps support that connection with ourselves.
Aromatic: Inhale directly from the bottle or place 1-2 drops in an ultra sonic diffuser.
Topical Use: Place a drop in the palm of the hands, rub directly over the heart area.
Tip: Place 2-3 drops of ylang ylang into a tepid epsom salt bath before bedtime for some relaxation and summer lovin!.
