Jasmine Absolute

Often incorrectly referred to as “Jasmine Essential Oil” and sometimes spelled “Jasmin.”

Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale) is one of the most highly prized aromas used in natural perfumery. Its heavenly fragrance is a bit stronger and more intense than our Jasmine Enfleurage.

Absolutes are highly concentrated, aromatic oils derived via solvent extraction of plant material – often for flowers that are too delicate for steam distillation, like Jasmine, Mimosa and White and Pink Lotus. The aromatic compounds in an Absolute can smell exceptionally fresh, as the extraction process does not put the plant material through high temperatures. While aromatherapists  prefer Jasmine Enfleurage for therapeutic applications, many perfumers cherish our Jasmine Absolute because it contains very little of the minute solvent residues found in standard Absolutes.

 

Since essential oils cannot be extracted from Jasmine flowers by either steam distillation or pressing, there is no true essential oil of Jasmine. When you see “Jasmine essential oil” advertised on some sites, it is either a misnamed Jasmine Absolute or synthetic Jasmine; no exceptions.

History

Like many of the rich, “heady” flower absolutes, such as Gardenia, Rose, Neroli and Tuberose, Jasmine has historically been claimed to have aphrodisiac and uplifting properties in small amounts and to exert stupefying effects when large amounts are inhaled. These claimed effects, especially aphrodisiac effects, are really what the perfume industry has been based on for thousands of years and have been said to account for the timeless appeal of the rich, deep flower aromas like Jasmine.

Learn about the molecular composition of essential oils and the claimed erogenous properties of certain floral aromas in Dr. Joie Power’s article “Flowers of Romance,” in the February 2017 issue of Aromaculture magazine.

    My favorite jasmine in the entire world! This is the real stuff! A little goes a really long way so even though it is pricey, to me, it is worth every penny!
