Many of the core constituents of ylang ylang oil are allergens. This means that many people may have sensitivity to this oil and the products it goes into. While you should never ingest essential oils, you can use ylang ylang oil topically if you dilute it first. However, due to its components, it’s best to do a patch test first. To do this, add 3-6 drops of ylang to one ounce of a carrier oil, such as coconut. Then, dab a small amount onto your skin. Wait for 24-hours, and see if any reaction occurs. If not, you can continue with topical application. The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy advises using no more than 6-15 drops per ounce of carrier oil for an adult, but it is best to start with less in case of a potential reaction. . However, there are still some common precautions to take when using essential oils. Most importantly, never ingest them. The reason behind this is the high concentration level of these oils. Still, if you have any underlying conditions it is best to speak with a medical professional before use, to be on the safe side.
