Plant part used
Place of origin
An evergreen shrub or vine with delicate, bright green leaves and very fragrant star shaped white flowers.
The most exquisite of scents, the oil is a deep reddish-brown in colour with a sweet, floral and exotic, slightly heady fragrance.
Method of extraction
The beautiful rich bouquet of Jasmine oil is the result of millions of tiny petals being picked from the vines at exactly the right time of day.
Blends well with
Bergamot, Frankincense, Geranium, Lavender, Sweet orange, Rosewood and Ylang Ylang.
Mind & Spirit – Has a great influence on the emotions particularly when they involve relationships and sex, works at releasing unresolved emotional blocks. Clearly an oil that intensely changes the mood and offers little choice other than optimism (vaporizer and blended for massage).
Body – Is an effective oil for post-natal depression as well.
Skin & Hair – Particularly useful in skincare and is used to treat dry, aggravated skin.
Jasmine is diluted in jojoba oil at 3% due to the cost and powerful effects.
