Ylang ylang (Cananga odorata) is commonly used as aphrodisiac.
It is a great antidepressant due to its uplifting quality. Other benefits are rejuvenating effect on the skin and calming effect on the nervous system.
"Ylang ylang oil's narcotic scent is its dominant characteristic. It is used for heart palpitations, for which even the smallest amounts, applied topically, have a remarkable effect."
