Ylang ylang oil is processed from the flowers of the Cananga odorata genuina, says WebMD. It has a floral fragrance and is rubbed on the skin to reduce stress and high blood pressure. It also has antibacterial properties, is part of a formula that kills head lice, and is said to be an aphrodisiac. Ylang ylang is also used as a flavoring and lends its fragrance to soaps and cosmetics.
