Goodbye stress & anxiety:
Ylang Ylang essential oil is a go-to natural choice for reducing stress and anxiety.

It does so by reducing the levels of cortisol in the body (aka the stress hormones). To reduce stress, simply add a few drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil to your diffuser or oil burner to relax and unwind after a long day – or optimally, by your bed before sleeping. You can also apply the Ylang Ylang Essential Oil topically for the same benefits, but make sure to do a patch test before to ensure there are no allergic reactions.
