10ml Jasmine Absolute Essential Oil
Jasmine is a delicate, evergreen climber native to China and India with small, white, star-shaped flowers, which are picked at night when their fragrance is the most powerful. This Jasmine Essential Oil has a sweet, exotic and richly floral fragrance. It is expensive, as its distillation is more elaborate than for most oils, and it used to deeply relax, lift depression and increase confidence.
- It helps coughs and laryngitis and is also useful in a massage oil to ease muscle pain, sprains, and stiff limbs.
- Jasmine oil tones dry, oily, or sensitive skin, increases elasticity and is said to reduce stretch marks and scarring.
The jasmine has been considered a holy flower in India for hundreds of years and is strung together to make garlands for Hindu gods and Goddesses. Jasmine is commonly worn in the hair by Indian women and is one of the main flowers in wedding garlands.
According to a myth, the sun god, Surya, rejected a princess's love and she was so heartbroken that she killed herself. From her ashes scattered on the ground, a jasmine plant grew. Since the sun god caused her so much pain, the jasmine flower only bloomed and released its perfume at night.
