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.
There is nothing worse than suffering from acne when you are taking great care of your skin. You take the time to research every ingredient that you apply to your skin. You never sleep in your make-up. And still those pesky breakouts show up.

Make your own carpet cleaner powder with Borax, baking soda and an anti-bacterial blend of essential oil. This easy to make carpet refresher leaves your carpet smelling great for days!
There are a few things that I refuse to spend money on and one of those things is carpet cleaner powder. I spent years buying carpet refreshers and was always disappointed in the results. The “fresh linen” always smelled stale and never lasted. In reality, I was just masking any food or pet smells with scented powder and actually wasn’t cleaning anything.
There are so many benefits to making carpet cleaner at home. Like any DIY product, you have the ability to decide what ingredients go into your creation. Making your own carpet powder is cheap, uses natural ingredients and if you use the right essential oils, it has anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties.
