From the flower of Cananga odorata, Ylang ylang essential oil is also used to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and improve mood. In addition, ylang ylang essential oil is said to act as a natural insect repellent, promote wound healing, and diminish the appearance of scars when applied to the skin.
(Please note: Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids that can be harmful if not used carefully and properly, and may cause irritation when applied to the skin. We encourage you to dilute oils at all times with any carrier oil and exercise caution when using them. We do not recommend using essential oils internally.)
