.ylang & geranium

Ylang and geranium are two of my favourite essential oils. When I was choosing scent for my new batch of soap I decided to give it a try and mixed it together. I love how essential oils may mix creating some unbelievable fragrance that you would never know! For example recently I've found out essential oils blend that smell like dried berries and other with the scent of pepsi. Nice, ha? I'll share this secret soon!

I don't want to waste your time so my target in all this "plants-posts" is to find out in particular what useful properties does essential oil give us.

Ylang-ylang is a super stress reliever as it helps to relax, removes insomnia, depression and stress. It is great for all skin types because it moistures, renew skin cells, heals damages and scratches and what's most important it controls oily secretion of your skin. Ylang-ylang has aphrodisia properties: it makes women and men more sensual. Also, a few resources reported that it helps to recover breasts elasticity after pregnancy.
Try to blend with bergamot, lemongrass, rosewood, grapefruit, petitgrain, patchouli, jasmin, cassia, rose, orange, lavander, lemon, neroli, sandal, citronella.
Be careful! Don't use when pregnant! Not supposed to be used by children younger 12 years.

Geranium is like all types of doctors in one little flower. I won't even try to list all of it's properties, i will just mention those which concerns skin and aromatherapy. Geranium essential oil heals skin damages and diseases as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, herpes. It strengthen blood circulation, renew skin cells, controls sebum, it is perfect for oily, sensitive and irritated skin.
Try to blend with orange, lemon, basil, bergamot, grapefruit, jasmin, juniper, cedar, lavander, patchouli, clove, lime, neroli, rose, rosmary, sandal, citronella, petitgrain, rosewood.
