Traditionally, jasmine oil has been used in places like China to help the body detox and relieve respiratory and liver disorders. It’s also used to decrease pain associated with pregnancy and childbirth.
Jasmine essential oil has been described as having a warm, exotic, floral fragrance that relaxes, soothes, uplifts, and enhances self-confidence. Research has suggested that jasmine oil works by positively influencing the nervous system. Through aromatherapy or by penetrating the skin, the oils from the jasmine flower have an effect on a number of biological factors — including heart rate, body temperature, stress response, alertness, blood pressure and breathing.
Many people refer to jasmine oil as a natural aphrodisiac because it’s said to have a “seductive” scent that can increase sensuality. In fact, jasmine oil is sometimes nicknamed “queen of the night” — both because of the strong smell of jasmine flowers at night and also because of its libido-boosting qualities. One could make a natural perfume blend by adding a drop along with your favourite carrier oil and one drop of either Frankincense Carteri, Mandarin, or other essential oil.
