Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum grandiflorum)

Origin: India
Family: Oleaceae

Description: The sweet, flowery, rich and exotic scent of Jasmine has been used since ancient times and known to be an aphrodisiac, used in many love potions and perfumes.

Jasmine grandiflorum, also known as Spanish Jasmine, is a semi-deciduous vine which can grow to 15 feet tall with arching square stems bearing leaves composed of small leaflets of five or seven. Spanish Jasmine supports itself by twining. At the branch tip from mid-spring into fall are borne the clusters of sweet-fragrant white flowers.

The Jasmine flower releases its fragrance at night after the sun has set and especially when the moon is waxing towards fullness. Jasmine flower buds are more fragrant than the flowers. The oil comes from the petals, which are collected at night for the best scent and must be extracted by a solvent. This is a delicate process and large quantities of petals are needed. The chemical structure of jasmine is close to human perspiration. Two hundred different species of jasmine occur in nature. It is a very potent oil so only a little is needed.

It is an essence rather than essential oil and contains: benzyl  acetate, linalool, benzyl alcohol, farnesol, indole, methyl anthranilate,  benzyl benzoate + phytol, phytol acetate, cis-jasmone, methyl jasmonate, isophytol+jasmine lactone and eugenol, among others.

A very romantic and sensual warming oil for massage, and excellent for dry and sensitive skin.


Product Application:
Essential oils should never be applied directly on the skin without diluting properly, usually blending with a carrier oil.
