Sweet smelling jasmine is extracted from the evergreen, which has origins in China. It is a
costly oil and a little different from other essential oils. Jasmine is obtained via solvent
extraction; which means it results in a concrete substance rather than oil. Jasmine goes
through an extensive process. The flowers are placed over fats to absorb the fragrance. This
process takes a number of days and yields just a small amount of oil.
Jasmine has wonderful therapeutic properties and is known to ease depression and enhance
libido. It's great for respiratory problems and reducing tension and stress. For ultimate
relaxation add a few drops to your warm bath water, vaporizer or diffuse. In addition, jasmine
can be blended with your favorite massage oil.
