Beautiful quality. One of my favorite oils and this was the first time buying from Snow Lotus and I love it! Thank you
I was first introduced to this wonderful Madagascar Ylang Ylang by my acupuncturist & herbalist friend. When I ran out, I bought something at Whole Foods that did NOT compare, so I found this online and am so happy. It is pure and lovely and keeps me happy.
I have a very old one dram bottle of ylang ylang that was bought in the 1980's and it is incredibly beautiful, creamy and has a slight banana note. It has been my ylang holy grail and I was afraid I would not find another one as beautiful. Well not so. This Ylang is gorgeous. Where the other ylang was bright, fruity and creamy, this one skews sultry with a bourbon note and a slightly green/rooty twist which develops into that beautiful banana note. I have been wearing it alone as a perfume. It's sensual and relaxing.
Great to release anxiety in this age of stress
When you open the bottle of this essential oil it smells as if you have just opened your bedroom window and a bouquet of fresh flowers sits outside, wafting beautiful aromas through the air.
