Delicate Jasmine flower
All over the world
The Jasmine plant used in essential oils is a lovely climbing vine that has oval shiny leaves and blossoms of white flowers. The vines are native to Africa, Australia and Southeast Asia but the alluring fragrance and visual appeal became so popular that the Jasmine plant is now grown all over the world.
Unfortunately, the lovely, delicate flower is difficult to extract oil from through the usual steam method. Manufacturers have a special method they use to extract the oils from the flowers, making this essential oil expensive. In fact, many people find the oil so expensive that they prefer to grow their own Jasmine plant to obtain the aroma.
The sweet floral aroma of the Jasmine essential oil offers quite a few benefits. From easing feelings of being overwhelmed and stressed to just needing some inner grounding, lovely Jasmine is there to help and there are several ways to easily incorporate this aroma into your life and home. Simply place a few drops in a diffuser and you can relax and achieve an inner warmth feeling. This oil can easily be taken to the next level by blending with other oils such as;
