This 'flower of flowers' (Cananga odorata) has a heady, sensual aroma. The scent elevates the spirit and consoles the heart. Blend with rosewood, sandalwood and cocoa butter for an exotic body butter. Ylang ylang essential oil has a delightful scent. Didn’t like to one you sampled, try others! There are three extractions of this flower, and each one offers its own variation on ylang ylang’s scent. Ylang ylang extra is often considered the best, but follow your nose! The one you like best is the best one for you. Ylang ylang is thought to lift the spirit, calm the heart, and aid the skin. Adding a few drops to an unscented lotion could make the best lotion for someone who an anxious, has a rapid heartbeat, and certain types of skin issues. A fantastic scent that blends well with lavender, sandalwood, bergamot, and – for a great, gentle morning pick me up – grapefruit.
