Oh Jasmine, how I love you so!
I've always loved the smell of Jasmine, even back when when I was just using artificially fragranced lotions and candles (which I can't even tolerate now). Last fall my friend (and upline) Heather started raving about how yummy the oil smelled. I got to smell hers, and I was all hearts and starry eyes about it! Now my body literally craves it! I immediately ordered a bottle of it, and it has become one of the oils I use regularly as perfume.
Just a few facts about Jasmine Oil:
*It is found in many of my favorite YL blends, such as Inner Child, Joy, Forgiveness, Harmony, Lady Sclareol, Sensation, and the Mirah Shave Oil, just to name a few! *Jasmine is an amazing emotional oil, it's great for your skin, and it may work as an aphrodisiac..*The Jasmine flower represents hope, happiness, and love. *It is referred to as both "Queen of the Night" and "Moonlight of the Grove". *Jasmine is technically not an Essential Oil, it is an Absolute or an Essence, because of the way it is processed. *Jasmine flowers must be picked by hand before the sun becomes hot on the very first day they open, or much of the fragrance will evaporate. The quality of the blossoms can also be compromised if they are squashed, thus making it one of the most expensive oils in the world! *It takes 8 million hand-picked blossoms to produce 2.2 pounds of oil. *A single 1 lb. can of pure jasmine oil can cost from $1,200 to $4,500. In contrast, synthetic jasmine oils can be obtained for $3.50 per pound, but these synthetic oils obviously do not possess any of the therapeutic qualities of pure jasmine oil. *Thankfully, Jasmine Oil is extremely potent! I usually only need one drop in the diffuser. If I put a drop on my skin, or in my hair, the scent lingers until I wash it off. So although it's one of the more expensive oils, it will last you a long time! 📷@takecarebegood
