Description

Jasmine essential oil may be extracted from different jasmine species such as common jasmine (Jasminum Officinale) and Spanish jasmine (Jasminum Grandiflorum). They belong to the Oleaceae family, which has more than 200 specie types. This plant can reach a height of approximately 10 to 15 feet, bears dark green leaves and white flowers that usually blossom at night.

Jasmine is known for its sweet and heady fragrance, the oil sometimes referred to as “the king of oils” is one of the most expensive as its extraction is very lengthy and involves several different processes. Only the flowers are used for extracting the essential oil, and they have to be picked at night when the perfume is the most intense.  It takes roughly 2,000 pounds of jasmine flowers to produce just one pound of essential oil. Jasmine’s exotic and uplifting perfume blends well with most other oils.

    So far my favorite essential oil. I love to relax in a warm bath with a few drops of Jasmine essential. The aroma is heavenly.

How to use

Place in a diffuser undiluted for a calming sweet aromatic environment. • May be directly inhaled for the symptomatic relief of colds and congestion. • Jasmine oil is used in many cosmetic products, making it perfect to treat your skin and hair. • Add a few drops to your bath to relieve stress and tension. • Add few drops to your favorite hand lotion for daily skin rejuvenation. • For the symptomatic relief of muscle aches and pains, add a few drops to carrier oil then rub onto the affected areas. • For fatigue put a few drops on a cotton ball and inhale for 1 to 2 minutes. • For a sweet sensual atmosphere in your bedroom, put a small amount in your potpourri container. • Use in aromatherapy for a restful night’s sleep. • Inhale a few drops of the Jasmine essential oil in hot water to help clear the nasal passages.

Words of Caution

Pregnant women, before they are at the actual birthing process, should avoid using this oil since it is an emmenagogue. It is highly relaxing and sedating and thus heavy doses should be avoided. Again, those who are allergic to Jasmine should avoid using it, as with any essential oil made from a known allergen.
