Ylang Ylang Olive Oil Soap


Ylang Ylang isn't as widely known as many other fragrances, and some of the marketing claims (antidepressant, hypotensive, even aphrodiasiac) may make one pause. We make no such claims whatsoever--ylang ylang is pleasing just for its own delicate frangrance. Pia combines it with olive oil so as not to overpower the scent, and adds a touch of bergamot to bring out the woodsy side of ylang ylang.

One interesting fact about ylang ylang-- if you enjoy Victorian novels, you no doubt have come across the mention of Macassar oil, a favorite hair preparation of Victorian gentlemen. Ylang Ylang was one of the main ingredients of Macassar oil. The tendency of the oil to be transferred from the user's hair to the back of his chair or sofa led to the creation of the anti-macassar, small crocheted or embroidered mats laid over the backs of Victorian furniture to protect the upholstery. Now you know what those little white thingies are on the backs of the chairs in Victorian domestic scenes!
