About Jasmine Essential Oil

Jasmine essential oil is extracted from the white flowers of the jasmine plant, which can reach a height of 10 to 15 feet, and bears dark green leaves.

Its flowers usually bloom at night but the plant grows from summer until fall. Due to its powerful fragrance, Pakistan has named jasmine its national flower. In India, it is regarded as a holy flower by the Hindus.

Jasmine has various scientific names including Jasminum Grandiflora (Royal Jasmine) and Jasminum Officinale (Common Jasmine). The oil is extracted mainly from the latter variety.

Renowned as the “King of Flowers,” Jasmine is prized for its delicate white flowers, which emit a highly fragrant aroma for up to 36 hours after being hand-picked. Extracting Jasmine is labor-intensive and must be done at daybreak, when the flowers are most fragrant and have the highest percentage of components intact.

Please note that the FDA does not regulate essential oils. This means that I cannot make any specific claims about or imply that essential oils cure or should be used to treat any diseases or other health conditions. I am not doing that by providing this information.

Jasmine is known to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections and promote healthy looking, radiant skin. Jasmine may also be beneficial in nourishing and protecting the scalp.

Due to the large amount of flowers needed to produce a small amount of oil, Jasmine is highly sought after in both the perfume industry and in aromatherapy.
