Jasmine Essential Oil
Relaxing, Uplifting and Exotic........
Jasmine essential oil is known as the 'King of Oils'......in my opinion, a reputation well deserved! Strangely, although it is known as the 'king', it is very much a woman's oil........although, both men and woman can be very attracted by the sensational smell!
With its wonderful soothing and sensual aroma, this has been a favourite oil for many for thousands of years.....the name Jasmine comes from the Persian word 'yasmin' which means "a gift from God".
The Jasmine is a creeper with white or yellow flowers with an absolutely exquisite scent. It is often used (along with Rose) in the most expensive of perfumes.
It is one of the most expensive oils to buy as it is costly and difficult to extract......around 8 million hand-picked jasmine blossoms are needed to produce 1 kilo of essential oil. They also need to be picked at night as their aroma becomes more powerful after dark! An experienced picker can pick up to 15 000 blossoms a night. Now doesn't this make jasmine essential oil really magical!
However, although it is expensive to buy, you don't need much because of its high concentration, and the benefits are definitely worth it!
