The truth is that plants, flowers, and herbs can nourish and heal.

People with anxiety or stress sometimes consider herbal remedies as an alternative to prescription drugs that can have unwanted side effects. Today we will guide you through a selection of medicinal herbs that we are using in our products and that play important roles for nervous and adrenal health. These herbs have long traditions of reducing anxiety and stress, which in turn play an important role in overall, holistic health.

YLANG YLANG

Cananga odorata 

Origin | Philippines

Ylang Ylang (pronounced "EE-lang EE-lang" ) is a beautiful yellow flower that grows on the Cananga tree. The name comes from a Philippine’s dialect meaning “flower of flowers.” Native to tropical South Asian countries, ylang-ylang is also found in the rainforests of Indonesia where I totally fell in love with this addictive scent. Ylang ylang can help decrease blood pressure and create a relaxing effect. The sweet floral aroma is great for when you need to rest and relax, but you aren’t seeking a sedative effect. The oil opens the fifth Chakra allowing you to flow through stressful situations with ease, harmony, and peace.
