Jasmine Absolute – Jasminum grandiflorum – is a very special oil that has been used by perfumers for many years as a base note for high quality and niche perfumery. Many of the early perfumers employed by major perfumery brands enjoyed working with Jasmine oil to produce some of the finest perfumes in the world.
Jasmine Absolute is produced from the flowers of the Jasmine which are carefully selected by hand and harvested at night time when the exotic aromatic essence is released away from the daylight.
The flowers of the Jasmine are distilled by ‘absolute extraction’ to produce the intoxicating aroma of Jasmine Absolute oil. The yield of the oil is low as with many other floral absolutes. The amount of oil present in the flowers is extremely low, and the oil produced is highly concentrated which makes the aroma quite sweet.
Together with labour costs and the low yield is why the price for this special oil is higher than most essential oils and will make your essential oil collection complete.
Use this oil sparingly due to its price but also it is so highly concentrated only 1 or 2 drops at the most is adequate for use either in a hair conditioner, a face and body cream or oil. Or as a treat, add to a pulse point – heads will turn.
This beautiful creamy oil has been known to be an aphrodisiac due to the potency of it’s intoxicating aroma – enhancing feelings of warmth, romance and love – a popular gift for Valentine’s Day.
Jasmine Absolute can be blended with many essential oils like Frankincense, Sandalwood, Buddhawood, Bergamot.
Store your precious oil in a cool place below 30C and out of the reach of children. Use topically – do not ingest. If pregnant seek medical advice before using this oil.
