The name Ylang Ylang means 'Flower of Flowers'. A tropical tree, its original medicinal use was as a treatment for malaria. It was used by the islanders of tropical Asia to treat insect bites, fight infection and ward off fever. It was used by the Victorians in Macassar hair oil, as an early conditioner and hair growth stimulator. Its antiseptic qualities have long been appreciated, but it has also been recognised as a nerve tonic as well as an aphrodisiac.
