With one whiff, the scent of Jasmine oil brings an exotic allure. Eliciting a sense of romance, the arousing natural aroma isn’t the only thing Jasmine oil has going for it. This special oil is wonderful for skin health, helps improve your mood, aids in overcoming stress and is even believed by many to assist in balancing hormones.
Jasmine comes from the genus of shrubs that are part of the olive family. There are about 200 different species of this extraordinary plant which thrives in warm climates. The flowers have to be picked very carefully (so as to not bruise the petals) under the moonlight when the temperatures wane, part of the reason it is one of the most expensive essential oils to work with. Another reason Jasmine oil is expensive is that it takes about 7.6 million flowers to produce just one kilogram of Jasmine essential oil.
This beautiful flower has been written about since ancient times. In China, it was adored by royalty and traded on the Silk Road while in Egypt, the world’s most legendary beauty, Cleopatra used in in perfumery. Even Louis XVI was a fan.
But the beauty of Jasmine goes beyond its heavenly fragrance to deliver benefits skin-deep and beyond, making it an ideal central star for formulations like our Signature Night Recovery Face Oil and and Relax & Nourish Body Oil.
