Jasmine or Jasinium Officinale as it is correctly entitled, is an exotic, rich and romantics smell. The scent is prized for is unique smell and also its healing properties. The sensual smell of Jasmine can be found within many classic perfumes, but it is extremely expensive oil. Did you know that it takes eight million Jasmine flowers to make only one kilogram of essential oil? The tiny white, star shaped Jasmine flowers are picked at drawn, to obtain maximum oil. The heady smelling plants are generally grown in Egypt, France, India, Italy and Morocco. I wonder if that is why whenever I smell Jasmine, I think of exotic tropical holidays?! **Effects on the Body** Jasmine is an uplifting yet relaxing oil. It helps to make the client feel confident, optimistic and yet slightly euphoric. The pure oil is dark red in colour, so avoid it coming into contact with clothing. This essential oil is ideal to use on dry sensitive skin. It is an excellent skin softener and is also ideal to use in the treatment of aches and cramps plus for the ladies, PMT. Jasmine oil is also used for the treatment of apathy, depression and irritability. **Cost** Having said all that, I must warn you about the cost of this unique essential oil. Due to the intensive and labour consuming nature of obtain Jasmine essential oil, the cost for a 9ml bottle is around £70.00 for the pure oil. Due to the cost of this essential oil, Jasmine is usually kept in a cupboard of the shop floor or behind the counter. If you do not see it in the shop ask, as it may be hidden away! Warning: The better quality of the oil the more expensive it will be. Avoid cheaper jasmine oils. These tend not to be pure. **Mixing** Jasmine essential oil mixes well with other oils: Atlas Cedarwood Bergamot Camomile Cary Sage Ginger Lavender Lemon Lemongrass Mimo

This is the gold bar of Aromatherapy products in my opinion (along with Ylang Ylang). I just love Jasmine and can never get enough of it, I absolutely adore the many varieties of Jasmine plants and if I ever was to have a baby girl I would call her Jasmine! Yes, as you can tell, I’m a Jasmine fanatic! This oil is the most used out of my collection, it’s great for depression, stress, fatigue, when you’re really stressed out and angry. The oil itself leaves you feeling all warm and loved inside. If you ever walk passed a Jasmine plant and inhale the perfume it gives out you will know that it gives you that sense of instant pleasure. It’s an uplifting, relaxing oil that will leave you feeling optimistic and slightly ‘euphoric’. I will guarantee this!! This is a brilliant oil and I swear by it! MUST GET IT!!
Jasmine has a lovely aroma, thought to be an aphrodisiac. It can be quite expensive to buy though because the plant only yeilds a tiny amount of oil. Apart from being an aphrodisiac it is stimulating and uplifting of the emotions. Used as an anti depressant it is believed to perk one up - it can be used to ease lethargy :-) On the other hand it can be used, massaged across the abdomen to relieve the pains of menstrual cramps. Often used in beauty preparations because of it's delightful aroma and invigorating properties, it is also a delightful oil to massage into the scalp to perfume the hair. As a heady and sensual fragrance around the home, (or for the bedroom) blend with sandalwood or patchoulli and add a few drops to an oil burner.
