Hello Lovers of all things aromatic, hope you are all happy and healthy on this gorgeous November evening!
This week Ylang Ylang keeps popping into my mind, onto my wrists and into my aromatherapy blends! Every time I inhale the beauty of this essential oil I can feel nothing but joy. So what choice did I have but to base this weeks blend around the sensual, sedating, serene and self-confident Ylang Ylang.
You can use it in your oil burner, in a massage blend or why not add a few drops to a nice warm bath – heaven! I hope you enjoy it as much as I am…
