Jasmine Essential Oil

Posted on


INCI name: Jasmine officinale

Jasmine essential oil is produced by steam distillation of jasmine absolute, which in turn is produced by alcohol separation from jasmine concrete. Jasmine concrete is produced by solvent extraction of the flowers of the same name. It is cultivated in China, India and the Meditteranean, and the concrete is produced in Europe, North Africa and the Far East. The absolute is mostly produced in France.

Jasmine essential oil and absolute have a rich, heady, floral fragrance. It has a lingering aroma, and is popular in room and drawer fragrancing products. Jasmine blends well with most other essential oils, the citrus oils in particular. It is anti-inflammatory and antiseptic.

In skin care preparations jasmine essential oil and absolute are used for dry, oily and sensitive skins.
