Today, I am excited to share about one of my favorite doTERRA essential oils, Ylang Ylang! For me, the unique, sweet, and uplifting scent of Ylang Ylang essential oil makes it a must-have in my essential oil collection. I often use it on my wrists and behind my ears to uplift my mood and keep me sane. Ylang Ylang works great in many diffuser blends because it has a rich, versatile fragrance that seems to improve any blend. Ylang Ylang oil is also known to promote healthy skin and hair. So add a few drops into moisturizer or shampoo for added benefits.
Valued for its calming properties, Basil is commonly used as a cooling agent for the skin. Basil has a warm, spicy, yet herbal aroma known to reduce anxious feelings. Basil provides great benefits to both the mind and body due to its high linalool content, making it an ideal application to help reduce feelings of tension when applied to the temples and back of the neck. Basil is commonly used in cooking to add a fresh, herbal flavor to meats, pastas, and entree dishes. When diffused, Basil helps promote focus and a stress-relieving experience.
