Aside from the pleasant, fresh, sweet, floral, delicate aroma, Ylang Ylang has a surprising number of things to offer. Ylang Ylang Flower Oil (Cananga odorata) is historically used medicinally for its calming, soothing sedative effect.
In addition to helping your little one sleep (and in turn, helping you sleep), Ylang Ylang oil balances the skin and assists in the treatment of cradle cap by reducing sebum production. It also contains antibacterial elements to help fight infection and has been found to relieve irritated skin due to eczema and dermatitis.
Who knew? In addition to all of the benefits for your baby, Ylang Ylang is also believed to be effective at relieving high blood pressure! The question actually is – why wouldn’t we include such an amazing ingredient?
