Ylang ylang essential oil is powerful oil that is often touted as a miracle solution for natural hormone regulation. A quick Google search will bring up a lot of websites that link ylang ylang oil to hormones. If you scan through many of them, you will find that there is nothing to substantiate this claim. Why or how does this essential oil influence your hormones?
Like anything else that is natural or plant-based, it is important to research how a substance actually affects the human body before you start using it medicinally.
I have nothing against holistic or natural care, however, too often I see people throwing around health claims for products that are untested. While I understand the appeal of using naturally derived ingredients, it is important to understand what research says about those ingredients.
