Prima Fleur Essential Oil: JASMINE

Jasmine grandiflorum
Jasmine is a deeply fragrant vine or shrub that grows easily in most gardens within its cold hardiness zone. The plant's small, delicate flowers emit a strong, exotic scent that fills the air in spring and summer. Jasmine flowers are used to make perfumes, and jasmine tea is thought to be soothing. Spanish jasmine (Jasminum grandiflorum) and Arabian jasmine (Jasminum sambac) share some of the same characteristics, but are distinctly different plants. Jasminum grandiflorum is sometimes called Jasminum officinale f. affine, or summer jasmine.

Our Jasmine grandiflorum Essential Oil is available as CO2-extracted [Prima Fleur No. 380]  - or solvent-extracted [Prima Fleur No. 188]. Or choose our Jasmine sambac Essential Oil [Prima Fleur No. 245].

In aromatherapy, jasmine oil is recommended to ease physical pain, and is considered a powerful antiseptic, sedative and tonic to ease breathing difficulties, coughing and nervous conditions. Combined with Ylang Ylang, it is said the mixture helps promote a healthy state of mind and body.

Jasmine sambac
Jasminum grandiflorum produces its flowers in clusters at the tips of its arching branches in summer. The white, five-petaled flowers are up to 1-inch wide and may have faint pink tinges on the undersides of the petals and on the buds. Jasminum sambac's flowers start out pure white and fade to pastel pink as the blooming season wears on. The flowers have a waxy appearance and are about the same size as Spanish jasmine blooms. Arabian jasmine flowers appear in clusters of three to 12 from spring through autumn.
