Botanical Name: Jasminum grandiflorum
Plant Part: Flowers
Extraction Method: Solvent Extraction
Product Description: Widely considered to be the most exotic and wonderful of all scents, jasmine has been central to the perfume industry for centuries. Jasmine acts strongly on mental and emotional levels, having powerful uplifting effects on the mood. Jasmine is excellent for skin care, is a hormonal balancer, is the most valued oil in childbirth, is a uterine tonic (suitable for treating spasms and easing menstrual pain) and is also quite good for pulmonary problems such as coughs, chest infections and loss of voice.
Cautions: It is important to note that all absolutes are extremely concentrated by nature. They should not be evaluated in this state unless you are accustomed to the undiluted fragrance. For those trying Absolutes for the first time, we strongly recommend they be evaluated in dilution. Otherwise, the complexity of the fragrance – particularly the rare and exotic notes – becomes lost.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
Blends well with: Jasmine Absolute generally works with all oils. It helps to round out scents, and tends to work particularly well with other aphrodisiac oils (Sandalwood and Ylang-ylang are two great examples).
