Jasmine Oil - Homemade Skin Care
By Susan Katchur

Jasmine oil is extracted from the petals of the Jasminum officinale, of the Oleaceae, (olive), family. The delicate flowers are gathered at night to preserve their powerful scent. They're placed on, olive oil soaked, cotton cloths for several days, then extracted. This common white jasmine is a semi-evergreen, twining, deciduous shrub, with fragrant white or very pale pink blossoms. It can grow twenty to thirty feet in height and spread seven to fifteen feet. It blooms, star shaped, flowers from Spring until Fall, (May - September), and rests in the winter months, (October - March.) Jasmine is ideal for growing on trellises or arbors in sun or partial shade, in warm climates. It requires high humidity and plenty of light to flower. It will loose its green leaves, particularly, in cold winters. After flowering, it should be pruned drastically to keep its size contained. Jasmine can be enjoyed as a house plant, in the garden or as cut flowers.

Jasmine essential oil has a deep mahogany brown color with a rich, exotic, sweet, floral, scent. It is non-toxic, non-irritating and generally non-sensitizing. Some of the countries producing jasmine oil include: India, Egypt, China and Morocco.

CAUTION! Some people, in rare instances, do have an allergic reaction to this oil.

MAKING HOMEMADE SOAP, HOMEMADE LOTION, HOMEMADE SHAMPOO, Etc...

CAUTION! Just a tiny drop of Jasmine oil goes a long way! Before using Jasmine oil, make sure you understand all precautions of using or working with essential oils. Essential oils contain bioactive ingredients. This means they contain natural chemicals that interact with our biological systems. They're potent chemicals and should be used with care. Never use large amounts of essential oils externally or internally. Never use them straight. They must always be diluted in carrier oil, or soap, lotion, or other buffering agent. Finally, never use them without knowing what their bioactive compounds are known to do.

COSTS

Jasmine oil is very expensive due to its costly and labor intensive process. Also, it takes huge quantities of petals from the Jasmine flower to produce one ounce of oil. Because of the quantity of petals needed to make jasmine essential oil, in some locations, it's rare and highly sought after. It's one of the most expensive aromatherapy oils in use.
