| Our sweeter Jasmine Oil is from the sambac variety, 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 upon receiving this oil from us: "We could not be happier with your product, service, packaging and overall vibe. We are quite versed in the variety of oils and are always on the lookout for a great sambac. We love this one and will order up some more this weekend. Thanks again for a great offering."
An absolute is extracted from Jasmine flowers, as they are considered too delicate to process through steam distillation. The advantage of the absolute is that the complete aroma of this wonderful flower is preserved in the resultant oil. There is no true Jasmine essential oil, as the flowers cannot be processed this way.
many species of Jasmine, up to 42 species have been recorded in India alone. We carry both the sambac - a lighter, more floral oil - and the Grandiflorum Jasmine Oil - a deeper scent. This Jasmine oil is a light orange-brown, somewhat-viscous liquid with a rich, warm, floral scent, with honey and 'tea-like' undertones.
It is an
oil that brings a lightness and happy feeling to those who use it. This is a potent oil
- it should be diluted before using; a little will go a long way. It is best diluted in jojoba
oil or used
in a blend of other oils. As a minor component it mixes well with most other oils.
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.
It is most highly valued in aromatherapy for its euphoric, sensual qualities. Long considered an aphrodesiac oil, Jasmine is indicated fear, vulnerability, or anxiety that could be preventing an open heart and mind. A SMALL amount of Jasmine could be worn as a perfume (because of its strength, too much may be overpowering to some individuals - usually one drop on each pulse point is sufficient) - the oil could also be warmed in an oil lamp, added to a bath, or simply dropped in a few spots throughout a room (the lazy way to aromatherapy!)
