Jasmine Absolute (Sambac) Oil
Jasmine sambac, also referred to as Mogra absolute, has a delicate, sweet floral scent (a hint more exotic than Jasmine grandiflorum). Just a drop or two can bring an aura of sensuality to a blend. Paradoxically strong yet serene, jasmine can settle and open the heart to self-love, compassion for others, and new experiences. Our alluring jasmine absolute (sambac) is solvent extracted from organically grown blossoms of deciduous shrubs in India. Our distiller hand picks the delicate white blossoms in the night or early morning, before the sun rises, when they yield the highest concentration of aroma.
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.
