The following six essential oils are included in our heart-expanding, loving magical box of essential oils for you to use in all your life - in the many different ways which oils can and are used.



 

JASMINE

Jasmine - Jasmine Grandiflorum  -

 

Jasmine is thought to have originated in Persia and then making its way through the trade routes arrived in China first recorded as a tea during the song dynasty. Long a favorite of Indian gurus it is said to open the heart center allowing bliss to blossom. It is also excellent for reducing physical stress upon the heart reducing the risk of heart attacks and increasing the immune system's strength.


It is said to clear depression, central nervous system.  Neroli's sweet, airy notes heralded in the Rococo era and Marquisa de Pompadour was inspired through her love of perfumes, among them Neroli, the huge growth of the still flourishing essential oil and perfume industries in France. In France, the essential oil industry grew up along side the medical industry and so is respected as medicine more so on the continent than in England, or the US.  Likewise it is respected for its many properties in the Eastern world where it is used for both spiritual and practical purposes.


Neroli also reduces stress, improves digestion, and lowers cholesterol.  Neroli also is an excellent antioxidant with high levels of catechins. Recent studies show that Jasmine as well as Green Tea probably reduce the risk, and help prevent the advent of cancers.


I used to have to drive to the Asian market for Jasmine teas but now they have a lovely tea on Amazon. And, Jasmine, is the only perfume, the only essential oil, my last boyfriend liked - he hated perfumes - and he loved Jasmine essential oil!
