As a natural high blood pressure remedy, you can take ylang ylang as a dietary supplement too (only when using a therapeutic-grade oil) by adding one to two drops to water or warm tea.
Mood Enhancer: Because of its ability to act directly on the olfactory system of the brain, inhaling ylang ylang can have immediate, positive effects on your mood and act like a mild, natural depression remedy. It’s said to “expand the heart,” and research shows it can help release negative emotions, including anger, low self-esteem and jealousy.
It’s also beneficial for fighting insomnia without drugs and chronic fatigue syndrome since it has mild sedative effects and can lower stress responses like a fast heartbeat and high blood pressure. Try diffusing the oil in your home or massaging it into your skin to bring on stronger feelings of awareness, confidence, peace and self-love.
Skin Health Preserver: One of the most popular uses for ylang ylang is applying to the skin in order to preserve a “youthful glow” and help prevent signs of aging or irritation.

Natural Hair Care Product: There’s many ways that ylang ylang and coconut oil benefit your hair. Try massaging ylang ylang into your scalp along with using coconut oil or jojoba oil (or your regular condition) to increase the appearance of healthy, shiny hair.

Aphrodisiac and Social Enhancer: Ylang ylang has been shown to act like a natural impotence remedy since it can help increase the libido of both men and women.
