There isn’t enough information to know how ylang ylang oil might work.

Insufficient Evidence for:

APPLIED TO THE SKIN
Treating head lice. Developing evidence suggests a skin spray containing ylang ylang oil, anise oil, and coconut oil is 92% effective for killing head lice in children. It seems to work about as well as a spray containing bug-killers such as permethrin and malathion.
Treating high blood pressure.
Promoting relaxation (as a sedative).
Increasing sexual desire (as an aphrodisiac).
Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of ylang ylang oil for these uses.

Ylang ylang oil seems safe for children and adults in the amounts found in foods. It also appears to be safe when applied to the scalp in combination with other herbs.

There isn’t enough information to know if ylang ylang oil taken by mouth is safe or what the possible side effects might be if it is used in amounts higher than what is typically found in foods.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Ylang ylang oil is safe for pregnant and breast-feeding women in food amounts. But larger medicinal amounts should be avoided until more is known.
