Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

Ylang Ylang essential oil is a heart healing elixir. Steam-distilled from the petals of the flower, this oil is revered in the countries it's grown in for its healing powers on both physical and emotional levels.

doTERRA sources its Ylang Ylang from Madagascar, which you'll see from the moving story in the video below. On the island of Java, Ylang Ylang flowers adorn the newlyweds' bed and are often used as an aphrodisiac. When I traveled to Bali a few years ago, I learned it's grown there and they even have a national song dedicated to it! Which our tour guide beautifully sang for us. :)

Ylang Ylang essential oil is a powerful release for emotional trauma from the past. In this way, it supports in regression work and forgiveness work along with other methods of emotional healing.

On a personal note, Ylang Ylang is the oil I used to heal from grief from my dad passing away in 2016, and I recommend it to anyone that it's experiencing a current emotional trauma as well. This oil has an uplifting and calming quality that soothes anxious feelings, frustration, stress, fear, loss of will, apathy, and adrenal/mental fatigue. It was a God-send to me then and I believe it's a tool we can turn to right now.

What it does is connect us with our inner child, our purest form of our heart. It restores innocence, by naturally allowing bottled up emotions like anger and sadness to be released. Most important, it reminds us how joy can be felt and experienced more fully by allowing the full range of emotions to be felt in our hearts.

Modern society honors the mind over the heart, which causes many of us deep pain and confusion as we become out of touch with our emotions. Our heart, which helps us with its intuitive knowing, is an essential part of us.

Physically, this essential oil supports heart health too, by supporting healing from irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, and heart palpitations. It also provides antioxidants and supports healing hormone imbalance, low libido, hair loss, colic, and stomach ache.

You'll find below that Ylang Ylang is found in many of the blends at doTERRA showing how diverse it is in use, from its support in focus, sleep, hormone health, comfort, joy, and even as a beautiful perfume.

Ylang Ylang is one of my favorite oils based on its aroma and these powerful healing properties. As a heart-healing medicine, this is exactly what the world could use right now.
