Make your own body butter using Jasmine essential oil to help relax you, and to soften and scent your skin with the oils of this exotic flowers essence.
Jasmine is considered to be a romantic scent and it has been used in the perfume industry for years. It has an exotic aroma, one that is sultry, soft and pleasantly sweet. The Jasmine oil also has strong properties that will help you balance your hormones and promote healthy skin. This oil can help to relieve stress, nerves, tension, confidence, and good spirits. It is also considered to be an aphrodisiac, and quite an effective one. You can use it alone or you can blend it with other oils, it adds sweetness and a unique aroma to any body product you add it to.
Jasmine Essential Oil's Properties And Health Benefits
Did you know that the Jasmine plant belongs to the olive family? This plant has a beautiful flower, but it's quite elusive, since it only blooms at night. That, along with it's sweet, flowery scent make this plant seem very mysterious and romantic.
It's properties include acting as an antidepressant, an aphrodisiac, an anti-spasmodic, an antiseptic, a stimulant, and an emollient...that's a skin softener. The health benefits from this essential oil are impressive too. They include the ability to relieve tension, anxiety, and depression. They also help rid you of a headache and are gentle enough to use on sensitive skin.
Jasmine oil blends nicely with the scents of Ylang Ylang essential oil and is also often paired with Sandalwood essential oil.

For the most relaxing bath ever just add a drop of two of your Jasmine Essential Oil into your tub when you begin to fill it with water. Sit and soak in this relaxing aroma for a restful tub experience.
