Lavender & Ylang Ylang Soap

As Spring takes hold and we start to see our gardens and hills flowering again, we wanted to spend a bit of time talking about the wonderful flowers we regularly use in our soaps, creams and lotions, and what can be beneficial about them.

Aromatherapy is usually not associated with soaps, but rather with massage oils and diffusers, to maximize the olfactory effects of the essential oils on both the body and the mind. However, when we use soap in the shower, the steam also enhances the fragrance and envelopes our senses in the fragrance of the soap. Smells induce memories and feelings in us, and can even change our moods and perception, and bodily responses.

So, it makes sense that the fragrance of the soap and shampoo you use in your morning shower will influence your mood and on how you start off your day. Remember this the next time you shower!

Keeping this in mind, we shall today talk about lavender & ylang ylang flower soap. Ylang ylang, which has a delicate floral scent, is said to lift the spirit and induce feelings of joy and happiness. In aromatherapy, it is often used to treat depression and anxiety. Lavender compliments the uplifting effect of ylang ylang by adding calmness and serenity to the blend. The result of the combination is a stunningly beautiful and comforting fragrance.

The ylang ylang tree is sometimes referred to as the perfume tree and was originally found in the Philippines (later in Reunion, Madagascar and Tahiti). It has large flowers which turn from green to yellow and have a strong perfume. Ylang ylang essential oil smells beautiful and comes in several grades. It can be used to infuse coconut oil for cosmetic products but in its superior grade, it is used primarily in perfumery.

Lavender has a soothing reputation as a natural alternative to help you relax, unwind and let go of stress. But you’ve got to wonder. Does it really work? The good news is that it does. And as a bonus, if pharmacists of the Middle Ages were correct, it has aphrodisiac qualities, too.
