Ylang Ylang is a little star shaped flower that has historically been found in Asia, but is now sourced in other parts of the world. DoTERRA’s Ylang Ylang is sourced from Madagascar and is steam distilled from the flower.
Traditionally Ylang Ylang has been used as an antidepressant and an antiseptic. If one is angry, it is said to be useful in helping to release that anger. The best methods for using Ylang Ylang are topically and in a nice relaxing bath. This is also an important component of the blend I will be trying on my son with ADHD as it has been widely recommended in that area.
Ylang ylang is used in several doTERRA blends including In Tune, another personal favorite!
