Jasmine Essential Oil

Soothing, sensual aphrodisiac

Jasmine essential oil is known as the King of Oils (Rose is the Queen.)

Famous as an aphrodisiac essential oil, jasmine's sensual, soothing scent brings out feelings of emotional warmth and love. Its deeply calming nature may help with problems such as impotence and frigidity.

Aromatherapy jasmine lotions, bath oils and other remedies are good for helping with depression - jasmine's warming, confidence-building qualities are excellent for supporting mental and emotional health.

Jasmine can ease post-partum depression as it helps calm nerves, lift spirits and restore energy. It also promotes the flow of breast milk and is often used in lotions and body oils to help restore elasticity and reduce stretch marks and scarring.

Jasmine straight out of the bottle smells overpoweringly sweet - you'll want to dilute it to a tiny percentage of a recipe. It's also an extremely expensive oil, so it's lucky that a litle goes a very long way!
