“Ylang Ylang was the very first essential oil that I tried and it really caught my attention in minutes. It had been a long time and I was feeling a bit frayed around the edges. A friend gave my a couple of drops of Ylang Ylang on my wrists to try. I will tell you I was EXTREMELY skeptical. I tried it and then went about to forget about it. About 10-15 minutes later I noticed something, the frays around my edges were now gone??? I just felt a sense of calm…..The closest thing I can relate it to is when you have a glass of wine. Within the first few sips you feel a calm come over you that is later followed by the buzz. Well the feeling the Ylang Ylang gave me was the calm without the buzz. It was nice. But I don’t convince that easy, and I had to try it over and over and sure enough it brought on an amazing calm”
