Ylang Ylang Essential Oils

One of my favorite florals!

Known for providing antioxidant support, Ylang Ylang can be a great add to a refreshing drink or smoothie. For a quick pick-me-up apply a few drops of Ylang Ylang to the back of your neck. When applied topically, this essential oil is great for uplifting your mood or for an elevating boost.

But seriously one of my favorite ways to use this oil is in my DIY hair perfume. You can prevent the harmful sun rays from damaging your hair with doTERRA Ylang Ylang. Due to the organic components it contains, Ylang Ylang provides protection from the summer heat while increasing the appearance of healthy, shiny hair.

Hair perfume is a great way to leave those you pass by with the sweet and enticing aroma of essential oils. Lightly spray it on your hair to keep it smelling sweet and fresh. Feel free to switch up the essential oils used in this recipe to create your perfect aroma.
