History of Ylang Ylang
Ylang ylang means “flower of flowers,” and is prized throughout much of Southeast Asia. In Indonesia, ylang ylang flowers are placed on the beds of newlyweds to welcome them into marital bliss. Ylang ylang’s qualities are legendary, particularly since the aroma relaxes and invigorates at the same time. This mysterious duality is part of why ylang ylang is one of the world’s most intriguing fragrances. Ylang ylang’s exotic scent is popularly used in perfumes and in hair and skin care products.
