History, Science & Medical Uses
Ylang ylang Essential Oil has been used for centuries in traditional medicine practices due to its many therapeutic properties. The oil has been used since ancient times by the people of India and other parts of Asia, where it was used to treat a variety of ailments from depression and anxiety to skin conditions like eczema. Ylang ylang is also an important ingredient in perfumes, soap-making, and making natural dyes for fabrics.
The essential oil is extracted from the flowers of the ylang ylang tree (Cananga odorata) which is native to certain regions of Southeast Asia, the Philippines, Madagascar, Comoro islands, and Polynesia. During the 19th century, it was even popularized by French perfumers who used it in their products as a way to create a unique and exotic scent.
The plant became so popular that it was even given the title ‘flower of flowers’ by Queen Marie Antoinette! Its popularity continued into the 20th century when it began being exported around the world. Today it is widely available as an essential oil as well as in various perfumes and skin care products.
Ylang ylang has long been used in traditional and folk medicine for a variety of purposes. Native to the tropical regions of Southeast Asia, it is primarily used medicinally as ylang ylang essential oil that can be diffused or applied directly on the skin or scalp. Its many medical uses include reducing anxiety, treating insomnia, aiding digestion, relieving muscle pain and tension, boosting libido, improving circulation, combating depression and stress, regulating hormones, and even promoting hair growth.
Ylang ylang is often added to aromatherapy oils for its calming effect on emotional wellbeing. It is believed to promote relaxation and reduce feelings of distress due to its sedative properties. For this reason it is commonly used to treat symptoms associated with nervousness and anxiety such as palpitations and rapid breathing. It can also be inhaled or applied topically to help calm the mind before bedtime in order to induce restful sleep.
Additionally it has been known to help ease digestive issues such as indigestion and constipation by relaxing muscles that line the digestive tract. As a topical application it can be massaged into areas of soreness or muscle tension in order to provide relief from aches and pains. And finally its aphrodisiac qualities make it an ideal addition to massage oils which can improve libido by stimulating arousal and desire.
The science of ylang ylang has been studied and researched for decades, and its use as a medicinal plant dates back centuries. It is known to help with a variety of health issues, including insomnia, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, and more.
The major compounds found inside ylang ylang include linalool, eugenol, geraniol, myrcene, and caryophyllene. These compounds have been found to possess sedative effects that can help reduce stress levels, improve sleep quality, as well as reduce inflammation in the body.
Linalool is one of the most abundant compounds in ylang ylang essential oil and is responsible for its calming scent. This compound has been shown to help reduce anxiety levels in people suffering from insomnia or stress-related conditions. Eugenol has also been found to possess analgesic properties that can help alleviate pain associated with headaches and other conditions. Geraniol is another compound present in ylang ylang that helps promote relaxation through its sedative effects. Myrcene also works by helping to soothe muscle tension while caryophyllene has anti-inflammatory activity that can be beneficial for treating various types of inflammation-related conditions. All these active components work together to promote overall wellbeing when used aromatically or topically.
