Ylang Ylang Complete Essential Oil (Cananga odorata var. genuina) is used in aromatherapy in preparations for the hair and skin and is said to encourage glossy, fuller hair and to nourish mature skin. It has been said that this essential oil helps to regulate the production of sebum and so is a good choice for use with all skin types. Some aromatherapists have described it as a general tonic for body, mind and spirit. It is known to have grounding and stabilizing effects when there has been emotional upset or trauma.
