Multiple sclerosis and Ylang Ylang
I'm looking for help to gather any infomation on Ylang Ylang and why it is contraindicated in cases of Multiple Sclerosis. I see notes to say that it is contraindicatedd, but nothing to follow for an original source of information or explanation as to why it is contraindicated. This is very important to me so I would appreciate anyhelp you can offer. Thank You.
Have you thought about contacting a qualified aromatherapist? - the office in London could probably put you in touch with a professional.
I believe it may over-excite the immune system but I'm struggeling to find some 'referanceable information'.
If I could 'Shout from the Treetops' my question would be ; Should we raise a study about Ylang Ylangs effect on the immune system, and advise caution in the meantime to the Aromatherapists ?
I'd be interested where you got the info from in the first place. I have never come across Ylang Ylang as contraindicated for MS. It is largely used for the perfume content these days as there are so many adulterants etc. to change and limit any medicinal value. It makes me concerned about the validity of any related info you have.
Lots of contra-indications are listed - but I suspect most are defaults' just in case'. But a lot of them are based not on actual evidence of harm but on the effect of the oil. So something that is supposed to stimulate the immune system will be contra-indicated in auto-immune disease where the action of the immune system is at fault.
I have never seen MS listed as a contra-indication for any oil
