Bergamot is named after a small town in Italy, Bergamot in Lombardy, where the tree was originally cultivated and used in folk medicine for the treatment of fever and worms. Bergamot is perhaps best known today for the delicate fragrance and taste it contributes to the popular Earl Grey tea blend. According to legend, Christopher Columbus brought the tree to the Caribbean, where it was popularly used in voodoo practices as a protection against misfortune. Columbus may have had his own reasons for travelling with bergamot. Carrying the dried fruit in your pocket was thought to keep travellers safe on their journeys and soothe the stress of travelling. Modern aromatherapists suggest placing a few drops of bergamot on a cloth and carrying it in your pocket or travel bag. Sniff the scented cloth while travelling to reduce stress, depression, anxiety, or insomnia.

The herb has long been grown for its healing properties. Its smell was thought to relieve depression and to encourage relaxation. Medieval monks planted raised garden beds of chamomile, and those who were sad or depressed lay on them as therapy. Chamomile also was once a strewing herb, spread on bare floors so that the scent was released when people walked on it. The genus name, Matricaria, given to the German chamomile species means ‘matrix’ (womb), and this was the nature that the herb was used by the ancients; as a woman’s herb for relieving female conditions and aiding childbirth.

Country of origin: Somalia
Part of plant: Gum
Method of extraction: Steam-distilled
Fragrance: Fresh, woody, balsamic, slightly spicy and fruity.
Principal constituents: Monoterpenes: Limonene, Pinene, Borneol, Phellandrene, Myrcene Sesquiterpenes: Farnesol Esters: Octyl Acetate, Incensyl Acetate Alcohols: Octanol
History and Traditional uses:
The earliest known use of frankincense dates back over 5000 years when it was used as incense. The fragrance of frankincense is thought to ascend and perfume the heavens. Frankincense is also known as ‘Olibanum’, which was its original name before it was renamed frankincense in the 10th century. The name olibanum derives from ‘oil of Lebanon’ as frankincense is native to the Middle East. The frankincense
burned as church incense today is the same as that used by ancient peoples who inhabited the Middle East and North Africa. In Christian lore, it features in the Bible some 22 times! The name frankincense is derived from the old French word, franc, meaning free, pure or abundant, and Latin incensum, meaning to smoke. Charred and powdered, frankincense was the major ingredient in the traditional black kohl that Egyptian women still wear as eyeliner. It was believed to help women see a more spiritual aspect of the world, to avoid ill-fate, and to prevent eye infection. Of course, it has been, and still is, used in expensive perfume.
Energetic:
Cuts ties to the past, that are blocking personal growth. Stills the mind.
Therapeutic properties:
Antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, astringent, sedative; clears lung congestion, decreases gas and indigestion, brings on menstruation
Mind:
Burned, frankincense reportedly releases a psycho-active substance that expands consciousness. Soothing, elevating, protective and restorative, its beautiful fragrance helps calm down body, mind and spirit to create a perfect ambience for meditation, ritual, yoga or prayer. Valued for its tonic effect on the nervous system, frankincense is used by people to counter depression and aid memory. Users report that as it brings clarity to the mind, the breath deepens, the body relaxes and the spirit soars.
Body:
Historically, it has been utilized for treating syphilis, infections, and all kinds of skin disorders. Ayurvedic medicine from India has long suggested its use on inflamed skin conditions. Its antiseptic and skin-healing properties fight bacterial and fungal skin infections and boils. Since it’s quite expensive, however, it is usually reserved for the most difficult cases, such as unsightly scars that remain after an infection has healed, and hard-to-heal wounds. For problem skin areas, use a couple drops of frankincense in an equal amount of vegetable oil. Frankincense is excellent on mature skin and acne. It is especially good when middle-aged women experience those conditions and also want to prevent wrinkles.
Make a compress or massage oil with frankincense for breast cysts or for infection of the lungs, reproductive organs, or urinary tract. It also increases menstrual flow.
Use in the bath for anxiety and depression.
Use in a vaporiser for meditation, yoga or prayer.
Use in massage blend with orange and neroli for the deep relaxation.
Add to pot-pourris for its rich, long lasting scent.

Fragrance: Sweet-fruity tea-like odour.
Principal constituents: Esters: Neryl Acetate Sesquiterpenes: Curcumene Monoterpenes: Limonene
History and Traditional uses:
Also called Immortelle and Everlasting. The name comes from the Greek word helios (sun) and chrysos (gold) because the flowers look like little golden suns. Teas made from the flowering tops of Italian helichrysum were traditionally used for skin complaints, asthma, coughs, arthritis, poor digestion and headaches. They
were also taken to dispel worms. Most trials on various species have confirmed the antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, anti-haematomic and antibacterial properties of
helichrysums in general.

Mind:
Helps alleviate anxiety, stress and nervous exhaustion. It is used to soothe and fortify a depleted nervous system. Also helpful for mild depression and the emotional

people who feel cold or who may have received too little warmth and affection in their lives. Added to the bath water or made into a massage oil, it relaxes yet also
fortifies an overwrought system. Opening and inspirational, relaxing and elevating, helichrysum is thought to increase dream activity and awareness and to stimulate
the right (intuitive) side of the brain.
Body:
The oil is effective in physical trauma. Helichrysum can be used as an emergency first aid treatment of injuries. It can be applied drop by drop to bleeding wounds,
even large ones, if medical help is not available. It is said to reduce and even stop hemorrhage until medical treatment is available. It has been found to be extremely
useful in severe burns and in the regeneration of tissue during wound healing.
When applied regularly on a closed wound, it has been found that almost any wound will heal without a visible scar. It is therefore strongly recommended as a treatment after surgery. The oil has been found to increase the body’s ability to ward off infectious illness such as coughs, colds and flu. For such purposes, it may be used in the bath, in steam inhalations or diluted in a carrier oil and applied as a chest rub.
The ketone content may provide anti-inflammatory properties that rival the effectiveness of German chamomile for treating inflammation.

Used to stimulate the endocrine system, it’s understood to cleanse the blood and purify the body. Stimulates liver, gall bladder, kidney, spleen and pancreas – the detoxification organs.
Use steam inhalation for sinus infections, bronchitis and coughs. It’s analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties make it good for massage blends for rheumatoid

Part of plant: Flowers
Method of extraction: Steam-distilled
Fragrance: Sweet, floral and heady
Principal constituents: Esters: Benzyl Acetate, Methyl Jasmonate, Phytyl Acetate Alcohols: Benzyl Alcohol, Phytol, Linalool
History and Traditional uses:
Native to the Himalayas and Asia, jasmine is considered to be a sacred flower to the people of these areas. The Hindus strung jasmine flowers together to form
garlands and presented then to their most honoured guests. Jasmine is the sacred flower of the Hindu love god, Kama. A fragrant emblem of love, jasmine flowers are often entwined into bridal flowers at Indian weddings. This custom is said to promise the bridal couple a deep and lasting affection for eternity. An ancient Indian
myth of a princess who fell in love with the sun god Surya-Deva attempts to explain why the jasmine flower will only open its petals at night. According to the myth, the sun god rejected the princess’s love and she was so heartbroken that she killed herself. Her ashes were scattered to the ground, and from the ashes the beautiful
jasmine grew. Since the sun god was responsible for her death, the jasmine flower would only open and release her perfume at night. Throughout history, jasmine has been revered for its aphrodisiac qualities, and known as a plant of love with a great influence on both males and females.
Energetic:
Releases inhibition, liberates imagination, develops playfulness. Transcends physical love, releasing male and female sexual energy.

Antidepressant; relaxes nerves, relieves muscle spasms and cramping

Jasmine is known as a romantic and powerfully relaxing oil that will uplift and soothe. Users swear that it floats away any worries or anger, nervousness or irritability. Jasmine sedates the nervous system, so it is good for jangled nerves, headaches, insomnia, depression and for taking the emotional edge off PMS and menopause
- although keep in mind its age-old reputation as an aphrodisiac! Studies at Toho University School of Medicine in Tokyo show that jasmine also enhances mental
alertness and stimulates brain waves. In another study, it was able to help computer operators reduce by one-third the number of mistakes they made.
Body:
Used as an aid to calm the mind, jasmine has high value in skin care where it is used for the treatment of dry or sensitive skin and to reduce wrinkling and rejuvenate an ageing complexion. It also eases muscle cramping, such as menstrual cramps. Cosmetically, the oil is wonderful for sensitive or mature skin. In its native India,
jasmine flowers infused into sesame oil are applied to abscesses and sores that are difficult to heal. A similar preparation can be made by adding 2 drops of jasmine
essential oil to 1 ounce vegetable oil.
Safety precautions:
Due to its emmenagogue properties it should not be used in pregnancy. Using too much of this oil could impede concentration, as it is a deeply relaxing oil.

Principal constituents: Esters: Linalyl Acetate Alcohols: Linalool Oxides: Cineole Sequisterpenes: Caryophyllene
History and Traditional uses:
Native to the Mediterranean, Lavender is responsible for the birth of aromatherapy in our modern culture. Lavender has been used for centuries to freshen the air of
sick rooms and used as a carminative, disinfectant, sedative, tonic and a healing agent.Cultivated since early times, lavender was one of the herbs dedicated to
Hecate – god of witches and sorcerers – and was thought to avert ‘the evil eye’. Its name means ‘to wash’ and refers to the Roman custom of washing with
water infused with aromatic flowers. The Egyptian pharaohs used lavender as a perfume and fragrance. The Greeks used lavender to scent their bathwater. The
name lavender was possibly derived from the Latin word ‘lavare’, which means ‘to wash.’ During the middle Ages, lavender gained a reputation as an aphrodisiac that
attracted a lover. Sprinkling lavender water onto your lover’s head was said to keep
your lover faithful. This belief fuelled a great demand for lavender.
Lavender was also one of the ingredients of the Middle Age’s ‘Vinegar of Four Thieves’, which was used by grave robbers to ward off the plague. It was also
burned to keep the evil spirits away. Lavender was used right up until World War I as an infusion to treat and disinfect wounds.

Mind:
Ideal for soothing people affected by PMT, menopausal issues, palpitations, grief, mood swings and depression. Strengthening yet calming, the self-nurturing
properties of lavender are said to help soothe away anxieties, induce sweet sleep and still an overactive mind. Of several fragrances tested by aromatherapy researchers, lavender was most effective at relaxing brain waves and reducing stress. It also reduced computer errors by almost one-fourth when used to scent the office.
Body:
Lavender is among the safest and most widely used of all aromatherapy oils. It relieves muscle pain, migraines and other headaches, and inflammation. It is also
one of the most antiseptic essential oils, treating many types of infection, including lung, sinus, vaginal, and especially candida infections. Lavender is suitable for all
skin types.

Country of origin: Italy
Part of plant: Peel
Method of extraction: Cold pressed
Fragrance: Radiant, tangy and zesty; sensual, sweet and warm
Principal constituents: Monoterpenes: Limonene
History and Traditional uses:
Mysteriously, although oranges were cultivated by the Chinese since 2500 BC, they
don’t actually feature in written history until they arrived in Rome in the first century
AD after an arduous shipboard journey from India.
The orange, like the orange blossom, is a symbol of innocence and fertility. Both the
orange and neroli share their common history, neroli being the flower and orange
being the fruit of the same tree. According to folklore, the exchange of an orange
between unmarried men and women was a simple charm to invite love to blossom
between the two. In European courts they were stuck with cloves and carried as
a pomander to dispel disagreeable odours and emotions such as depression and
nervousness, as well as to bring more cheer into dreary winter days.
Energetic:
For those that are too serious. Lighten up and laugh with joy.
Therapeutic properties:
Sedative reputed to relieve muscle spasms, cramping, and indigestion
Mind:
The aroma of orange essential oil is comforting and refreshing, joyful, tangy, sunny
and soothing. Orange is always a favourite with children and adults. It is a happy
scent, promoting ease in the family by soothing irritability, moodiness and frustration
and increasing joy, harmony and creativity. Orange’s greatest claim to aromatherapy
fame is its ability to affect moods and to lower high blood pressure. In fact, just
sniffing it can lower blood pressure by a couple of points. It is also a good adjunct
treatment for irregular heartbeat.
Research at International Flavors and Fragrances, Inc., in New Jersey found that
orange also reduces anxiety. You don’t even need to buy the essential oil; simply peel
an orange and inhale its aroma. It is a sunny and radiant oil, bringing happiness and
warmth to the mind, it helps people to relax and helps children to sleep at night.
Body:
Although not as antibiotic as lemon, orange essential oil still has some value in
fighting flu, colds, and breaking up congested lymph, especially when added to
massage oil. The aroma of oranges is a favourite of children, and they will usually be
more enthusiastic about an aromatherapy treatment when it is included. Using it as
a massage oil can ease a bout of indigestion or overcome a light case of insomnia
or depression.
Cosmetically, orange is good for oily complexions, although essential oils with more
sophisticated fragrances are preferred. Orange oil can be used effectively on the
immune system, as well as for colds and flu and to eliminate toxins from the body.

Method of extraction: Steam-distilled
Fragrance: Sweet, rich, exotic and earthy
Principal constituents: Alcohol: patchoulol
Aldehydes: benzoic, cinnamic
Phenol: eugenol
Sequisterpenes: cadinene, patchoulene
History and Traditional uses:
The plant is native to Malaysia and India. It was placed between Indian cashmere shawls
en route to Victorian England, to protect the merchandise from moths, and without this
signature smell of dried patchouli leaves the shawls could not be sold in England.
In the East, it is used in potpourri and sachets and placed between linen, to keep
bedbugs away. It is the smell of patchouli oil, mixed with that of camphor, that gives
Indian ink its characteristic smell. In the 1960’s, patchouli became the evocative
signature perfume for the flower children of the hippy generation.
To some people the scent of patchouli is exotic, sensual, and luxurious, but to others
it’s too forceful and repellent. Patchouli also has a reputation as an aphrodisiac, a
notion that probably originated in India, where it is used as an anointing oil in Tantric
sexual practices. Perfumers must think that it works since minute quantities of high
quality oil scent such famous perfumes as Tabu and Shocking.

ulcers, slow healing wounds, scalp disorders, as well as other fungal infections,

carpets.

Mint spread from Egypt to Palestine, where it was accepted as payment for taxes.
This particular use for mint is recorded in the Bible in Luke (11.39), which says:
‘you pay tithes of mint and rue… but you have no care for justice and love of God.’
Cultivated by the ancient Egyptians, dried peppermint leaves have been found in
a tomb dated at 370BC. Greek and Roman housewives added mint to milk to
prevent it from spoiling. They served mint after meals as an aid to digestion. Both
the Chinese and the Ayurvedic physicians of India used mint as a digestive aid, as a
tonic and as a treatment for coughs, colds and fevers. In both ancient Greece and
Rome, peppermint adorned the tables of feasts and people crowned themselves
with peppermint.
Peppermint was also used to flavour wine and was added to bathwater for its

In ancient art and literature, the rose was the predominant flower symbol. The ‘Queen

beauty in many cultures since time immemorial. The rose is native to central Asia
and is an ancient flower. Fossils from the Tertiary era (dating back forty million years)
confirm that the rose was flourishing in that time.
The word ‘rosa’ is derived from the Greek word ‘rodon’, meaning ‘red.’ The word
‘centifolia’ means ‘100 petals.’ In Roman mythology, it is said that the goddess
Venus gave the rose its colour with the blood of Adonis, after he was killed by a
boar. The rose is also a symbol of Venus, the goddess of love, and it is thought that
the planet Venus governs the rose. No love potion was considered potent unless
it contained a few drops of rose oil or rosewater. Rose petals were scattered at
ancient Roman and Egyptian weddings to ensure a happy marriage.
It is said that the first century A.D. Egyptian Queen Cleopatra first made love to Mark
Anthony on a carpet buried under 1 inch of rose petals. As a further reminder of her
love to Mark Anthony, Cleopatra had the sails of her ships soaked in rosewater so
that the scent of the rose on the breeze alerted her lover of her impending arrivalwell

Fragrance: Fresh, herbaceous, camphorous.
Principal constituents: Monoterpenes: Pinenes, Camphene, Limonene
Oxides: Cineole
Ketones: Camphor
History and traditional uses:
Regarded as sacred in many civilizations rosemary has variously been used for
driving away evil spirits, as a fumigant, as protection against plague, at weddings,
feasts and funerals - and as both a remembrance and an aid to joyful memories.
The word ‘rosmarinus’ comes from the Latin word ‘rosmaris’ which means ‘dew of the
sea’, in reference to its refreshing effects and its natural habitat. The ancients also used
rosemary as a respiratory ailment treatment and as sacred incense in some religious
ceremonies. Sprigs of rosemary have been found in Egyptian Tombs (3000 BC.)
Rosemary is one of the ingredients in the ‘Vinegar of Four Thieves’ which was a
potion used by grave robbers for protection against the plague. It was believed that
placing a sprig of rosemary under a pillow before sleep would repel nightmares, and
if placed outside the home it would repel witches.
The folklore developed from this practice says the woman rules the household in
homes and gardens where rosemary grows abundantly. By the 16th century this
became a bone of contention and men were known to rip up rosemary bushes to
show that they ruled the roost.
Energetic:
Associated with the third eye (brow chakra), rosemary is a psychic protector
Therapeutic properties:
An antiseptic, astringent and antioxidant, rosemary is said to relieve rheumatic and
muscle pain, relax nerves, improve digestion and appetite and increase sweating.
Mind:
Rosemary’s invigorating fragrance stimulates alertness and strength in the senses. It
encourages clarity and creativity, rekindles energies and nourishes intuition through
a heightened sensitivity to situations and surroundings. Rosemary helps prepare
the body and mind for meditation and prayer.
Rosemary oil has a pronounced action on the brain and the central nervous system.
It is thought wonderful for clearing the mind, fostering mental awareness and
improving the memory.
Body:
The benefits of rosemary essential oil in treating respiratory problems are unmatched.
The oil is used in treating respiratory allergies, cold, sore throat and flu. Since rosemary
oil is antiseptic it is effective for respiratory infections as well.
The oil is antispasmodic and is used in bronchial asthma.
As an ingredient in a massage oil, compress or bath, rosemary essential oil is
considered excellent for increasing poor circulation and easing muscle and rheumatic
pain. It is especially penetrating when used in a liniment.
Added to shampoos, rosemary has a pronounced positive effect on the health of the
hair and scalp. It increases the circulation to the scalp and is therefore also effective for
promoting hair growth. The diuretic properties of rosemary oil are useful with reducing
water retention during menstruation, and also with obesity and cellulite.
Safety precautions:
Not to be used when pregnant nor by epileptics or people with a history of heart
problems.
Home use:
The oil is used in room fresheners, candles and perfumes due to its aroma. The oil,
when inhaled brings mental energy and also clears the respiratory tract. Spray a
mixture of rosemary essential oil and water to remove bad odour from a room.

Country of origin: Australia
Part of plant: Heartwood
Method of extraction: Steam-distilled
Fragrance: A deep, soft, sweet-woody aroma
Principal constituents: Sequisterpene Alcohols: Santalols, Farnesol, Alpha–Bisabolol
History and traditional uses:
Recorded in the oldest Vedic works from the 5th century BC, mythical sandalwood
has featured in ancient eastern and western religious observances and in medicine
for the past 3,000 years. Sandalwood (S.album) originates from India. S.spicatum
is native to Australia.
Sandalwood has been used in India as a temple incense to worship the gods since
antiquity. Disciples of the Tantra tradition smear sandalwood onto their bodies while
celebrating the divinity of sexual ecstasy. Sandalwood is mentioned in the Hindu
love scripture the ‘Kama Sutra.’
Sandalwood is used in Ayurveda for treating skin conditions such as acne, poisonous
stings and external bleeding; in massage oils and as a blood purifier. The indigenous
people of Australia used sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) for centuries as a
medicine. They boiled the bark for a cough syrup and used the seed kernels in a
liniment for muscular stiffness. Western Australian sandalwood oil is included in the
pharmacopoeias of several countries, including Britain, France, Japan and Belgium.
Australian sandalwood oil was used as an internal antiseptic in the 1920’s and
determined to be ‘of equal therapeutic value to the oil of Santalum album’. In the
early 1920’s clinical trials were undertaken on the Australian oil at several public
hospitals. These trials were very successful, and Australian sandalwood oil was
used continuously from this time until being superseded by antibiotics.
Energetic:
Links the root and crown chakra – the oil of choice for meditation.
Therapeutic properties:
Antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, astringent, sedative, insecticide, urinary
and lung antiseptic therefore helpful in relieving lung congestion and nausea.
Mind:
With its mystical and euphoric fragrance, sandalwood, is renowned as an aphrodisiac
and said to have elevating, grounding and opening properties. Soothing and
warming, sandalwood creates an exotic ambience for sensuality, transcendental
meditation and contemplative reflection.
Sandalwood oil is inhaled to relieve nervous tension, calm the mind and help slow
down breathing and heart rate. It is connected with the ancient spirit of Australia.
Deep inhalation of sandalwood oil vapour creates a series of positive physiological
changes to the body. Most promising is its positive effect on the health of our
nervous system. A remarkable aspect of this relaxant ability is that our mind remains
clear and focussed, allowing the oil to be used without fear of drowsiness or when
high levels of concentration are important.
Body:
Suitable for all complexion types, it is especially useful on rashes, inflammation,
acne, and dry, dehydrated, or chapped skin. Chronic chest infections, sore throats
and dry coughs as well as bronchitis and asthma can benefit greatly from this oil, as
well as cystitis and bladder infections. It may also be helpful with sexual problems
such as frigidity and impotence. Sandalwood oil also counters inflammation, so it
can be used on hemorrhoids. A syrup or chest balm containing sandalwood may
help relieve persistent coughs and sore throat.
Home:
A long lasting fragrance that attracts humans as strongly as it repels insects.
Safety precautions:
none

Country of origin: Australia
Part of plant: Whole plant
Method of extraction: Steam-distilled
Fragrance: Strong, clean, powerful, fresh
Principal constituents: Monoterpenes: Terpinen-4-ol, Terpinene, Cymene, Terpinolene
Alcohols: Terpineol
History and traditional uses:
Known since the dawn of time by indigenous Australians, today this oil has been
scientifically proven to be resistant to bacteria, fungi and viruses at a rate five times
better than normal household antiseptics. No medicine cabinet should be without
this essential oil, as it is one of the most powerful immune system stimulants.
It is a small tree from New South Wales in Australia, with needle-like leaves and
heads of sessile yellow or purplish flowers. Even when this tree is cut down, it
flourishes and is ready for cutting again in two years. In World War II, the producers
and the cutters were exempt from military service until enough essential oil had
been accumulated. Each soldier and sailor was issued with some as part of his kit,
to treat tropical infections and infected wounds.
It’s only recently, however, that essential oil companies have begun touting tea
tree’s healing properties. Medical journal articles support reports of its ability to heal
mouth infections, and its primary use is in products for gum infection and canker
sores, germicidal soaps, and deodorants.
Energetic:
For delicate individuals who struggle with feelings of victimisation. Increases
tolerance, physically and emotionally.
Therapeutic properties:
Anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal; destroys parasitic infections,
encourages the healing of wounds, clears lung and sinus congestion, stimulates
immune system.
Mind:
Tea tree revives the mind and the spirits. Builds confidence, patience and understanding.
Body:
Called a ‘medicine cabinet in a bottle’, tea tree is effective against bacteria, fungi, and
viruses and stimulates the immune system. It is used in compresses, salves, massage
oil, and washes to fight all sorts of infections, including herpes, shingles, chicken pox,
candida, thrush, flu, cold, and those of the urinary tract. Studies show that the presence
of blood and pus from infection only increase tea tree’s antiseptic powers.
It heals wounds, protects skin from radiation burns from cancer therapy, and
encourages scar tissue to regenerate. Tea tree also treats nappy rash, acne,
wounds, and insect bites. Adding just one drop to dish and nappy washing rinses
gets rid of bacteria. Tea tree may be used without dilution topically to treat bacteria,
viruses and fungi, as well as to wash wounds, ulcers and burns.
Massage with tea tree oil before an operation to fortify the body and reduce postoperative
shock. It also helps clear bronchial congestion, asthma, coughs, sinusitis,
whooping cough and tuberculosis. Tea tree can be used to help clear vaginal thrush,
cystitis and genital infections in general.
On the skin, it clears abscesses, acne, burns, herpes, oily skin, athlete’s foot, cold
sores, blemishes, diaper rash, warts, sunburn and infected wounds, while fighting
dandruff on the scalp.
Home:
It helps purify the environment, prevent the spread of infection and bring the clear,
clean smell of the Australian bush to your home.
Safety precautions:
Possibly sensitising to some individuals.

Country of origin: Madagascar
Part of plant: Flower
Method of extraction: Steam-distilled
Fragrance: Intoxicating, heady, and floral
Principal constituents: Alcohols: Linalool
Esters: Benzyl Acetate, Geranyl Acetate
History and traditional uses:
With a venerable reputation as a potent aphrodisiac, sweet, floral ylang ylang
embellishes the wedding rituals of cultures across the world. Originating in the
Philippines, ylang ylang means ‘flower of flowers’
This fragrance is traditionally used in aromatherapy to sharpen the senses and to
temper depression, fear, anger, and jealousy. For these reasons, and also because
of its reputation as an aphrodisiac, the flowers are spread on the beds of the newly
married in Indonesia. People throughout the tropics mix coconut oil with ylang ylang
to use as a cosmetic and to protect their hair from salt water damage.
Today, as one of the most abundant and least expensive of the true floral-smelling
essential oils, it is a favourite in perfumes and cosmetics and is even added to some
beverages and desserts.
Energetic:
Dispels anger and creates a feeling of peace
Therapeutic properties:
Known to be an antidepressant that can stimulate circulation, relieve muscle
spasms, lower blood pressure and relax nerves.
Mind:
The powerfully exotic, yet soothing scent of ylang ylang may help overcome fear,
anxiety and impatience and usher in a more balanced state of soft mindfulness.
The euphoric qualities of this exquisite scent may make it valuable in overcoming
depression, apathy, anxiety, tension, PMT, menopausal problems, shock, fear and
panic while the aphrodisiac qualities make it useful for impotence and frigidity.
Body:
Ylang ylang is also believed to be an excellent aid for those suffering high blood
pressure and insomnia. 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 3 drops in hair
conditioner.
It is particularly useful with rapid breathing and rapid heartbeat and may also help
with reducing high blood pressure and useful for intestinal infections.
On the skin, ylang-ylang oil has a soothing effect and its balancing action sorts out
over-dry as well as overly-oily skin by balancing the secretion of sebum, and has a
stimulating effect on the scalp which promotes more luxurious hair growth.
Safety precautions:
Excessive use can cause headaches and nausea
