ylang ylang

Part 4

Let’s recap some ways to use ylang ylang essential oil –
Diffuse! It has a pleasant, floral aroma that helps create a calming environment. Great for uplifting mood as well as for focus and mental clarity. Amazing for all things related to emotional wellness.
Diffuse to set the right frame of mind for the day. Diffuse to help calm at bedtime. Diffuse while children are working on schoolwork to help them stay on task. Diffuse when your day has gotten out of hand and you need to refocus your energy. Diffuse for a date night in the bedroom with your love.

Use in your daily personal care routine. 
It can help moisturize skin and enhance the appearance of healthy-looking skin. So add to your lotion or a carrier oil to enjoy its moisturizing properties. Or just make your own DIY face mask. You can even apply it right on your skin. Also try adding to a hot bath to create a relaxing atmosphere to help you unwind after a long day.

Since ylang ylang nourishes the hair and scalp, mix some with coconut oil for a deep- conditioning hair treatment that will leave hair smelling sweet and floral.

And don’t forget to rub on your wrists and neck to leave a calming, floral fragrance you can enjoy throughout the day. You can even craft your own signature scent to use as perfume.

And for extra ideas in the bedroom, try applying to the inner thigh with cypress or orange. Maybe some goldenrod for him. Check out Lucy Libido’s book or join her FB group for more info on “Inner Thigh Potions” and other things between the sheets.
