Jasmine essential oil has a rich, romantic and alluring aroma. It is extracted through absolute extraction from the flowers of the jasmine plant, which is part of the olive family.
The flowers bloom only at night and are typically around 2.5cm in diameter and white or yellow in colour. The flower must be picked at night before sunrise and this precious oil requires more than 10 pounds of flowers to make 5ml of oil.

Jasmine Oil has a strong yet sweet, pleasing, and romantic fragrance with an uplifting effect.
It is most commonly created by absolute extraction of the flowers, a method using grain alcohol or hexane to extract the oils. This method is used when steam distillation would damage the delicate oils.
It is also a very good antiseptic and disinfectant. Its constituents like benzaldehyde, benzoic acid, and benzyl benzoate have very effective germicidal, bactericidal, fungicidal, and antiviral properties.
It is also a relaxing oil making it helpful with insomnia and stress.
