Jasmine Absolute (Sambac) Oil
This enchanting jasmine absolute (sambac) is solvent extracted from the delicate, white blossoms of the deciduous jasmine shrub growing in India. The aromatic jasmine blossoms are handpicked during the early morning, before the sun rises, in order to yield the highest essential oil concentration possible during distillation. We love using this absolute to help usher balance and calm to the mind, body, and spirit.
Benefits and uses
The small, fragrant blossoms of the Jasminum sambac plant create a sensual, sweet, incredibly floral, and slightly herbaceous absolute. Along with helping to provide balance and calm, jasmine absolute is a beautiful oil for skin support, as it rejuvenates and nourishes the skin. This absolute is perfect in a facial toner, facial mask, bath salt blend, or salt scrub recipe. You can also add a drop or two to lotion, shampoo, or any other natural skin and body care product. Jasmine absolute can help manage minor pain and inflammation and reduce the presence of unwanted bacterial activity. It can also help ease uninvited muscle spasms and provide soothing relief from voice hoarseness and laryngitis. While jasmine absolute is a popular choice to use during labor and delivery, as it is can stimulate contractions while providing pain relief and comfort, some believe that the aroma of jasmine sambac may inhibit breast milk production.
Emotionally and energetically, jasmine absolute is nourishing and balancing. This absolute is especially helpful when working to manage situational anxiety or depression. Jasmine absolute can help increase confidence, improve motivation, release unwanted inhibitions, and promote feelings of optimism.
