Ylang Ylang is known as a quite beneficial herb for human health and well-being. It has different effects on the body, mind, and soul. Ylang Ylang stimulates the production of important chemical messengers in the body, such as endorphin, serotonin, and encephalin, which results in a harmonious, soothing, and relaxing effect on the human body and soul. Especially aromatherapy has great applications for this plant.

It is used for:

  • Inner Restlessness
  • Insomnia
  • Nervousness
  • Stress, Tension & Performance Pressure
  • Nervous intestinal problems
  • Pain relief

Ylang Ylang also is used for erectile dysfunction and sexual aversion. Thus the oil has aphrodisiac effects and is considered helpful in the case of frigidity. In India and Indonesia, Ylang Ylang serves as a love oil. There, it is also common to place the blossoms on the couple’s bed before the wedding night.

However, by taking Ylang Ylang internally, undesirable side effects are possible. The affected persons may suffer from allergic reactions, headaches, or nausea. Also, do not use Ylang-Ylang during pregnancy.

Ylang Ylang Study on the Effects of Blood Pressure and Heart Rate

A study published in 2013 about the effects of Ylang-Ylang aroma in 29 healthy men has shown that this plant, especially the inhalation of its fragrance, dramatically decreases the heart rate and blood pressure diastolic one. It also had effects on the arousal level of men.
