Jasmine Hydrosol

Jasmine does not produce a suitable steam distilled essential oil, so true steam distilled Jasmine Hydrosols do not exist. Be selective of where you purchase your Jasmine Hydrosol. It is prudent to ask for the exact method of production. Because demand exists for a natural, water-soluble hydrosol-like jasmine product, some manufacturers have tried to come up with a way to produce a hydrosol-like jasmine water.

For instance, From Nature With Love offers a Manufactured Jasmine Hydrosol that they make clear is not a true hydrosol. They describe the production as follows: "First, the precious Jasmine Sambac blossoms are soaked in ethanol (a pure alcohol also known as grain alcohol or ethyl alcohol). After the essential oils from the Jasmine blossoms are dissolved into the ethanol, all of the ethanol is removed so that only the natural Jasmine extract remains. We do anticipate that a very trace amount of ethanol may potentially remain in the final product, but this trace amount should be negligible. Once the Jasmine Extract has been collected, it is then dissolved into distilled water. No solubilizers or preservatives are added."

Jasmine Hydrosol possesses an aroma that is reminiscent to that of a heavily diluted Jasmine Absolute.

Botanical Name: Jasmine Sambac

Aromatic Strength: Light/Delicate

Shelf Life: Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications: Hydrosol expert Suzanne Catty confirms that limited information is presently available regarding the potential therapeutic uses of Jasmine Hydrosol. [Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy (Rochester, VT: Healing Arts Press, 2001), 100.] It certainly looks promising as an ingredient for fragrancing and perfumery.

Jeanne Rose mentions that she finds Jasmine Hydrosol to be energizing. [Jeanne Rose, 375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols (Berkeley, CA: Frog, Ltd, 1999), 170.]
