Quick tips on how to use ylang ylang essential oil

The ylang ylang scent tends to predominate, so it should be used in small amounts on its own or when blending with other oils. When creating blends, start with amounts that seem too small. Let the blend age for several days before evaluating the aroma, so the power and radiance of the ylang can expand through the blend and reach its ultimate presence.
