Ylang Ylang Oil Benefits

Ylang Ylang, the love and aphrodisiac scent of local rights for thousands of years, began to be carried to Europe by explorers in the 1600s. And so the written history of Ylang Ylang began. Although it is known to be used by local communities in "first night" and celebration ceremonies, the transformation of Ylang Ylang into a fragrance phenomenon was when European explorers introduced this fragrance to the whole world. The fragrance arouses great interest. And it quickly became indispensable for women's perfumes and attracting partners. Later, French colonists moved Ylang Ylang to Reunion in the 1700s, and to the islands of Comoros and Madagascar in the 1900s. To meet this high demand, the first commercial cultivation of Ylang Ylang began in the 1800s.

The Ylang Ylang tree, whose homeland is the South Pacific, has turned into an odor phenomenon thanks to the yellow and plump flowers obtained from its branches reaching up to 20 meters in length. These flowers are harvested before sunrise in May and June and are distilled to obtain oil. The first answer to the question of what Ylang Ylang oil does is undoubtedly its feminine and dizzying aphrodisiac effect, as it has been for centuries, with its warm and soft scent. Indigenous peoples of Maluku islands decorate the beds of newlywed couples with Ylang Ylang flowers as a very old tradition. Paired with Venus in mythology, these flowers have been a symbol of passionate and seductive union.

Four stages of oil are obtained from Ylang Ylang flowers. The oils formed every six hours during the distillation were classified within themselves. Ylang Ylang benefits emerge thanks to the flowers that go through all these stages.
