Jasmine oil is an absolute extraction from the flower of the plant. To be technically correct, jasmine is an “essence” not an essential oil, but it is labeled sometimes as jasmine essential oil.
Did you know to maximize Jasmines fragrance it must be picked during the evening? Yes, after sunrise the fragrance greatly diminishes! This is why in part it was given the name "Queen of the Night".
Because of its popularity and its cost, Jasmine oil is often adulterated! Just to give you an idea of the cost and volume of flowers required to produce jasmine absolute I will provide some figures below:
• One pound of jasmine oil = 1,000 pounds of jasmine = 3.6 million unpacked blossoms!
• One pound of PURE jasmine oil = therapeutic quality = up to $4,500 per pound!
• One pound of SYNTHETIC jasmine oil = perfume quality = $3.50 per pound!
Seeing things in terms of dollars and cents always brings the point home.
Jasmine oil is included in many professionally made blends because of its diversity. From alleviating stress to balancing our emotional wellbeing, jasmine supports us unconditionally.
I designed the next section so you could use it as a fun and easy reference guide. It will tell you how to use your oil and what to use it for. It will also provide you with some fun tips, testimonials and oil trivia!
As I receive new tips and testimonials they will be added to the page, so check back often!

Have your animals smell it directly from the bottle or place a drop or two in your palm, then smell. Or place a drop in your palm and pet head to toe.

I only recommend using Young Living Oils on animals at this time.
