Ylang-Ylang Aromatherapy Products for Stress Relief

Here's How Ylang-Ylang Aromatherapy Can Be Used For Stress Relief


Updated September 23, 2011

Ylang-Ylang aromatherapy brings wonderful, calming benefits for stress relief and general wellness. Ylang-Ylang in particular is often used for its calming effects. (See this article for more aromatherapy benefits of peppermint and other scents.) Because of the convenience and ease of use that comes with it, ylang-ylang aromatherapy is an ideal stress relief tool. Here are some of the ways you can use ylang-ylang aromatherapy for stress relief.

1. Cinnamon/Ylang Ylang Aromatherapy Mist - $6.00 - $7.00

This convenient ylang-ylang aromatherapy spray can be spritzed on pillows and bedding for a relaxing nighttime environment, on wrists for stress relief throughout the day, or in the air for a soothing space and romantic mood. This 4-oz. spray contains pure ylang-ylang and cinnamon essential oil and mountain spring water.

2. Ylang Ylang Aromatherapy Hand & Body Lotion - $5.50-$6.50

I love ylang-ylang aromatherapy lotion because it can be used for massage for additional stress relief benefits, used as needed during the day as stress mounts, or smoothed on in the morning for all-day stress relief (and soft skin)! This bottle contains 8 ounces of ylang-ylang aromatherapy body lotion.

3. Classic Aromatherapy Candle Serenity, Lavender & Ylang Ylang - $12.00-$13.00

This candle can provide a wonderful mix of lavender and ylang-ylang, both of which can promote relaxation, feelings of calm, and wellbeing. The scent can fill the room and relax several people at once, and look beautiful, too. You can also use a candle like this as a focal point for meditation.

4. Ylang Ylang Aromatherapy Dead Sea Mineral Bath Packets - $2.00-$3.00 each

These Dead Sea mineral bath packets provide 4-oz. single-use packets of aromatherapy salts that can be used in hot tubs, foot soaks, or warm baths. They're non-foaming, and can provide a wonderfully soothing experience. Get in and relax, or try an aromatherapy bath meditation.
