From Ananda Aromatherapy, 100% pure Jasmine absolute, from Jasmine Grandiflorum flowers grown in Inida. This is the day-blooming Jasmine, with a deep, intriguing aroma. You'll find higher, sweeter notes in the Sambac if you prefer ~ they also blend nicely together. This particular Jasmine "Grand" absolute (also known as "Royal" Jasmine) is one of the nicest we've ever had the opportunity to enjoy.*

Jasmine Absolute is a simply intoxicating oil produced from jasmine blossoms;
1000 pounds of blossoms (about 3.6 million fresh blossoms) produce one pound of Jasmine oil. The blossoms
are collected before sunrise, and handled with care to preserve their delicate scent.
A recent customer had this to say about ordering our Jasmine: "Extremely quick in delivery and efficient. I was shocked at how quickly they got
here! I ordered jojoba oil and jasmine essential oil, and the quality was superb.
Highly recommended - I will most certainly be back!"
Jasmine is native to India and Western Asia. There are
many species of Jasmine, up to 42 species have been recorded in India alone. The grandiflorum variety is appreciated for
its combination of floral and deep notes, plus its complex character. (If you are interested in a lighter, sweeter Jasmine, try the Sambac variety. Lighter and sweeter doesn't mean 'less interesting', though it may mean 'broader appeal'!)
This Jasmine absolute is an orange-brown, viscous liquid with an intensely rich, warm, floral scent and 'tea-like' undertone. It is an
oil that brings a lightness and happy feeling to those who use it.
Jasmine has an exceptional aromatic potency. It is best to dilute before using; a little will go a long way. We like jojoba
oil as a carrier for a true Jasmine essential oil perfume, or used
in a blend of other oils. As a minor component, it mixes well with most other oils, though we find it should be measured drop by drop, as Jasmine can easily overpower other aromas.
Jasmine has been nicknamed 'Queen of the Night' and 'Moonlight of the Grove'; for centuries, women have treasured
it for its seductive, beautiful fragrance. Jasmine oil is uplifting and stimulating for times of hopelessness
and nervous exhaustion. It helps reduce anxiety and apathy, and can increase excitability when worn as a perfume.
Jasmine oil may be beneficial for dry, greasy, or oily skin. It may help with eczema when caused by stress, frigidity,
labor pains, laryngitis, lethargy, menstrual pain and problems.

|All oils from Ananda Aromatherapy are therapeutic grade,
meaning they are produced to the highest quality standards possible. Our essential oils are
chosen for their integrity (all chemical constituents important for aromatherapy are intact), ecological
'soundness' (most are organic or wild grown), and wonderful
aromas. You may order a sample of any oil before trying larger amounts. Most samples are about .75ml; exotic oils such as Melissa, Rose, Angelica and Jasmine are only a few drops. Ananda Aromatherapy offers wholesale essential oils direct to you. We forgo the use of separate wholesale and retail tiers in order to keep fine therapeutic grade oils accessible to everyone!
