Plant Therapy Jasmine Absolute
Absolutes are similar to Essential Oils, only their method of extraction is much more complex. Their fragrances are also much more concentrated and complex. There is very little oil in the plant parts being used. As an example, it requires over 30 Roses to produce 1 drop of Rose Absolute! Origin: India. Extraction Method: Solvent Extraction. Common Uses: Jasmine Grandiflorum Absolute is well respected for its aphrodisiac properties. It is a sensual, soothing, calming oil that promotes love and peace. Strength of Aroma: Strong. Blends well with: Jasmine Grandiflorum Absolute generally works with all oils. It helps to round out scents, and tends to work particularly well with other aphrodisiac oils (Sandalwood and Ylang-ylang are two great examples). Aromatic Scent: Jasmine Grandiflorum Absolute has a smooth, extremely intense floral smell that is both sweet and lingering. History: Since ancient times, Jasmine has been referred to as the King of oils (Rose is the Queen). Apparently this is because Jasmine is the most masculine of all the floral oils. It is also interesting to note that it takes 8,000 carefully hand-picked blossoms to produce 1 gram (about 1 ml.) of Jasmine Absolute. Cautions: We recommend a dilution of 0.7% for topical application. Note: It is important to note that all absolutes are extremely concentrated by nature. They should not be evaluated in this state unless you are accustomed to the undiluted fragrance. For those trying Absolutes for the first time, we strongly recommend they be evaluated in dilution. Otherwise, the complexity of the fragrance - particularly the rare and exotic notes - becomes lost. Suggested Uses: Dilute in a carrier oil or lotion to use as a perfume or to relax and calm you. Please Note: The International Federation of Aromatherapists does not recommend that Essential Oils be taken internally unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor who is also qualified in clinical Aromatherapy.
