I have started my fall with my another favourite oil Ylang Ylang. The scent reminds me of jasmine. Ylang Ylang essential oil is derived from Hawaiian star-shaped flower. Ylang ylang is used often to reduce stress and uplift mood. It is my new favourite to defuse at night-time. Ylang ylang is amazing for the skin and hair also. Because it smells so wonderful, it is nice to put on as a perfume. doTerra’s ylang ylang can be used internally, 1 drop to a big water-glass. It gives antioxidants.
Popular ways to use it:
- foot bath
- skin (1-2 drops to a table-spoon of carrier oil) and to hair oil treatments.
- 3-4 drops to a diffuser

Are you ready for the world of essential oils?
Essential oils can improve the condition of your skin and help you in your skin problems. Skin is the largest organ in human body and absorbs essential oils very effectively. If your body doesn’t agree with a particular essential oil, you can probably see it first from your skin. In this case you should choose a different oil from another plant.
Oily skin and acne
When your sebaceous glands are over activated, your skin gets oily. When you add unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, hormonal problems and stress, your skin can get even worse. Skin problems can also be caused by puberty, pregnancy, menopause and menstruation. You can put a drop of T-tree, camomile or lavender oil straight on your pimples. You can also mix two drops of essential oils on your bath water or put two drops of lavender to your steamer to release stress. Roman camomile helps also to the inflammation of acne. Lemon is antiseptic. Basil, grapefruit and lemon grass help to clear the skin. You can dilute two drops of them and use regularly on your face or back.
Dry and mixed skin
The dryness of your skin maybe caused by your sebaceous glands not being active enough, but also outer factors like: coldness, wind and sun. Dry skin gets flaky easily and also ages quicker than oily skin. Mixed skin is very common and the most common skin type among Finns. Having mixed skin means that the skin on your nose, jaw and fore head gets oily, but cheeks maybe still be dry. Dry skin absorbs oils very quickly. It’s good idea to add two drops of essential oils to your face cream or carrier oil like coconut oil or jojoba oil. It helps also to put two drops to your bath water. Good essential oils to dry skin are: Rose, sandal wood (moisturising), lavender, jasmine and camomile. T-tree oil is good for flaky skin. Good essential oils for balancing mixed skin are: Geranium and ylang-ylang.
