100% Pure Jasmine Grandiflorum Absolute Oil
If you're wondering about the difference between an Essential Oil and an Absolute Oil, Essential oils are mostly produced through a steam distillation process. But some flowers (like jasmine) are too delicate for steam distillation and are therefore extracted in a complex method using solvents, resulting in a highly concentrated aromatic oil called an Absolute Oil.
AWO’s pure Jasmine Grandiflorum Absolute Oil has an aroma that is best described as fresh, intensely floral and rich with a slightly fruity note, and is much sweeter than our Jasmine Sambac Absolute. Also, did you know it takes about 8,000 hand-picked blossoms to produce 1 gram (approx. 1 mL) of Jasmine grandiflorum absolute?
Known as the king of flowers, Jasmine is considered the most masculine of all the floral oils. It is one of the most popular oils used in perfumery, offering a very powerful floral note that easily upholds its presence, even when used in minute amounts.
The health-giving properties of this climbing evergreen bush are immense, and have been used in many cultures for centuries. With its soothing and calming properties, Jasmin Grandiflorum is helpful in relieving nervous tension, stress and mild anxiety. It is also commonly used for its ability to assist with muscular cramps and spasms, and easing menstrual pains. Plus it’s renowned for its action as an aphrodisiac.
