Jasmine is a delicate, evergreen climber native to China and India with small, white, star-shaped flowers, which are picked at night, when their fragrance is the most powerful. This Jasmine Essential Oil has a sweet, exotic and richly floral smell. It is expensive, as its distillation is more elaborate than for most oils, and is used to deeply relax, lift depression and increase confidence.
This oil is said to soothe the nerves and produce a feeling of confidence and optimism, while also restoring energy.
It helps a cough and laryngitis and is also useful in a massage oil to ease muscle pain, sprains, and stiff limbs.
Jasmine oil tones dry, oily, or sensitive skin, increases elasticity and is said to reduce stretch marks and scarring. The jasmine has been considered a holy flower in India for hundreds of years and is strung together to make garlands for Hindu gods and Goddesses.
Jasmine is commonly worn in the hair by Indian women and the one of the main flowers in wedding garlands as well.
