Jasmine (Jasminum officinale)
essential oil has a lasting, romantic aroma that is both soothing and
uplifting. Jasmine is associated with relaxation but can be used
throughout the day. It is an effective addition to many mood blends and
massage applications. The sensuously rich aroma of jasmine has been
known to evoke romantic moods. It is warming, connecting, and pacifying,
which makes the oil especially useful in skin and cosmetic
applications. Pre-blended with jojoba, this jasmine absolute is ready to
use right out of the bottle.
Aura Cacia Jasmine Absolute is produced through a solvent
extraction process due to the fragility of this delicate and valuable
flower, making it one of the most expensive essential oils. We extract
the oil from jasmine flowers typically harvested in India, where jasmine
plants bloom reliably and consistently even though they only produce a
few delicate flowers over the course of a few days or weeks. Considered
sacred in India, jasmine flowers are white, grow on climbing vines and
only bloom at night. The flowers are hand-picked at night to capture
their full floral potency.
Jasmine blends well with lavender, rose, lemon, sweet orange, lime,
bay, cardamom seed, frankincense, and clary sage. Jasmine is generally
regarded as a base note.
