Jasmine Absolute Essential Oil
Jasmine (Jasminum officinale) essential oil has a lasting, romantic aroma that is both soothing and uplifting. Jasmine is associated with relaxation but can be used throughout the day. It is an effective addition to many mood blends and massage applications. The sensuously rich aroma of jasmine has been known to evoke romantic moods. It is warming, connecting, and pacifying, which makes the oil especially useful in skin and cosmetic applications.
Aura Cacia Jasmine Absolute is produced through a solvent extraction process due to the fragility of this delicate and valuable flower, making it one of the most expensive essential oils. We extract the oil from jasmine flowers typically harvested in India, where jasmine plants bloom reliably and consistently even though they only produce a few delicate flowers over the course of a few days or weeks. Considered sacred in India, jasmine flowers are white, grow on climbing vines and only bloom at night. The flowers are hand-picked at night to capture their full floral potency.
Jasmine blends well with lavender, rose, lemon, sweet orange, lime, bay, cardamom seed, frankincense, and clary sage. Jasmine is generally regarded as a base note.
