Originating from South-East Asia, Cananga odorata is a fast-growing, tall evergreen tree, which produces large yellow-green, strongly scented flowers. Ylang Ylang has an intoxicating floral aroma. It is calming and soothes mentally, physically and emotionally. It is traditionally used as an aphrodisiac.

Directions for Use
Essential oils are the highly concentrated active Ingredients of plants. They should always be diluted in a base before use and should not be taken internally without professional recommendation.

  • Baths: Add 5 - 10 drops of essential oil(s) to a warm run bath. If skin is sensitive, blend the essential oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil first. Close the door so the vapours don't escape. Soak for at least 10 minutes relaxing and breathing deeply. For added moisturising dilute the oils in 10ml of carrier before adding to the bath.
  • Massage: add 5 - 6 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil. Mix thoroughly and apply liberally to the skin.
  • Inhalations: Add 4 - 5 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head, close your eyes and lean over the bowl. Inhale the vapour for a few minutes.
  • Burners and Diffusers: Fill the bowl of the burner/vaporiser with water and then add 3 - 6 drops of essential oil. Light the candle and the oil will evaporate as the water heats up. Do not let the bowl dry out.

Caring for Your Essential Oils
SOil essential oils and carrier oils are living products that are vulnerable to heat, moisture, air and light. It is best to store them in a cool, dark place with the lids well sealed. If your fridge is the only cool place around, allow the oils to reach a cool room temperature before use (around 20 degrees C).

This oil has a wonderful floral scent and makes me feel really relaxed. At first I thought it was too overpowering, but now I only add 1 drop to my diffuser and make a blend with other oils and it's perfect.

Such a wonderful smelling oil.
11/05/2020, By Elley
The ylang ylang scent I am familiar with is different to this. This had more dense notes than sharp uplifting ones (if that makes sense). I guess it comes down to personal preference. I will not buy this again, prefer the citrus essential oil.

What an oil

This has an amazing scent. I use it for perfume and a pillow spray.
06/11/2019, By Charity
I love this essential oil. I add it to my coconut oil moisturizer for my body and face. It has an exotic but earthy scent which is also luxurious. I find it very soothing and calming. Since I started using it together with frankincense I found myself much less anxious and stressed. I also used it in the evening and found it easier to fall asleep. I'm definitely pleased with the purchase.

I mix drops into a carrier cream and it smells fantastic.

Loooooove this oil. I use it in my bath salt and it is heavenly.
17/07/2019, By Tania
This smell is so soothing. I use it in my burner on the days I am stressed out and it really has such a calming effect. I also mixed some in my shea butter which I use head to toe and the smell lingers with me all day

Soil is one of the best essential oil brands. You are always sure you will get good quality pure unblended oils. Ylang Ylang is very relaxing at night to recreate a spa atmosphere

Love the scent and the skin softening abilities. I use it regularly with rosehip oil on my face and also in my whipped shea butter. I'm always asked about my "perfume". Great stuff

Lasts a while as just a dab is enough
19/02/2018, By Amanda
I use this oil in a lotion I make for my breasts and it's a lovely product. I love the smell and the fact that it absorbs into my skin quickly and it makes me smell awesome.

Delicious ❤
03/10/2017, By Jani
Wow! The smell is so lovely! I also used to wear it as a perfume. Just a dab behind your ears will last the whole day! And my husband enjoys it too, when added to the oil burner.

Gave me sinus when used in my oil burner.
11/02/2016, By Rita
I use the Almond oil with a drop or two of the Ylang Ylang Ess oil as an all over moisturiser. It absorbs well and leaves my skin feeling silky soft with a nice smell.
26/01/2016, By ashleigh
I use a dab as a perfume on its own. Its gorgeous!
14/11/2015, By Bearded Nirvana
I used this to make my own beard oil, this floral scent smells amazing
29/08/2015, By Tammy
I just love the Soil range of essential oils, they are of exceptional quality and all come with a label on the lid and description on the side to make it quick and easy to find the oil you are looking for. Ylang Ylang is just such a seductive feminine oil on its own and even better when blended with Patchouli and/or Clary Sage.
07/03/2014, By Luisa
I like to use a few drops of this oil as a perfume by applying them behind my ears and neck :-) I dont like regular perfumes but this is a extremely pleasant smell which uplifts the spirit, dont use too much as it can be overwhelming!
