HIGH ALTITUDE ORGANICS™ therapeutic grade Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is extracted by steam distillation (no solvents used) from the evergreen tree (Cananga odorata) that has intensely fragrant flowers that are followed by green fruits. Among other benefits, this oil has a stimulating effect on scalp which helps in promoting more luxurious hair growth. Ylang Ylang means “flower of flowers” or “fragrance of all fragrances.” This oil is traditionally used in aromatherapy to sharpen the senses and to temper depression, fear, anger, and jealousy. Of all the essential oils, ylang ylang is one of the best at relaxing the mind and the body. Simply sniffing it can slightly lower blood pressure, although taking a bath with the oil or using it in a massage oil greatly enhances the relaxation experience. It can be helpful in cases of stress, shock, or anxiety. When used as a hair tonic, it balances oil production. Add about 6 drops to every ounce of hair conditioner.
