More info

History: Jasmine has a long, rich history in many countries. In China, the flowers were used for liver problems and dysentery, while the root was used to treat headaches, insomnia and rheumatism. Of course, the Chinese are famous for jasmine tea. In Europe, it was used as an aphrodisiac and to treat venereal disease.

Characteristics:  Jasmine has a rich, warm, floral scent with musky undertones. The oil comes from the petals which are collected at night for best scent and must be extracted by a solvent (usually hexane). This is a delicate process and large quantities of petals are needed. The chemical structure of jasmine is close to human perspiration.
