Jasmine Absolute

Jasmine Absolute Profile

Jasmine Absolute has an exquisitely floral aroma that is uniquely its own.

Jasmine Absolute

Jasmine blossoms cannot be effectively steam distilled, so they are extracted by solvent to create a highly concentrated absolute. A tiny bit goes a very long way.

Jasmine Absolute is used within precious fragrancing applications for both men and women.

It is uplifting and has been used to help combat depression. Jasmine Absolute is considered an aphrodisiac. Other uses and benefits can be found below.

[F. Bassett, Journees de Digne. Le Jasmin, la Fleur Le Roi. (Parfums Cosmetiques Aromes 119, 1994), 58-64. Source cited in Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young, Essential Oil Safety (Second Edition. United Kingdom: Churchill Livingstone Elsevier, 2014), 312.]

Safety Information

Tisserand and Young indicate that there is moderate risk of skin sensitization when using Jasmine Absolute topically, and they recommend a dermal maximum of 0.7%. "Jasmine absolute appears to be a moderate-risk skin sensitizer that has caused problems in 0-1.2% of people with dermatitis when patch tested at 2 or 3%." Adulterants may potentially be the cause of some of the reported sensitization. Reading Tisserand and Young's full profile is recommended. [Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young, Essential Oil Safety (Second Edition. United Kingdom: Churchill Livingstone Elsevier, 2014), 311-313.]

Some may experience an allergic reaction to Jasmine Oil. [Julia Lawless, The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Essential Oils (Rockport, MA: Element Books, 1995), 155.]
