How to use

Use in a diffuser. Just put a few drops in a diffuser/burner to help relieve anxiety, tension and stress. It's also good if you are just generally feeling physically exhausted. • You can put a few drops in a hot bath to help promote relaxation, relieve tension, stress or just general irritability. This method is also good for fatigue, exhaustion and especially insomnia. It's a good idea to mix the drops in a small amount of milk first (essential oils mix better with fats) and then add to the bath. • Make use of Ylang Ylang's skin balancing properties and blend into a cream or lotion to help with either overly dry or overly oily skin. • Use this oil on it's own or as part of a blend in a carrier oil for aromatherapy massage. This can be especially helpful with tension, stress and insomnia.
