The Allure of Jasmine
Jasmine holds a distinct fascination. It's constitution—tiny bell-like white blooms, an intoxicatingly rich, sweet, floral scent—evoke a sense of dazzlement, romance, euphoria even. There is a strong response, pleasurable (it's safe to say) for most, when one smells it. Jasmine captivates.
Jasmine is "a rock star of the aromatic world," writes Mandy Aftel in her book, Fragrant: The Secret Life of Scent. Jasmine "stands for our yearning for beauty, for an aesthetic that embraces the evanescence of our existence as well as what endures." Originally from China and Northern India, jasmine essential oil was traditionally used for ceremonial purposes. It has also long been used in aromatherapy and as an aphrodisiac. Research shows that the inhalation of Jasmine essential oil can have positive impacts on the nervous system and moods, particularly inducing a sense of well-being and romance. Separate research found that "a nose full of Jasmine" to have mood elevating and relaxing effects that are substantially better than a popular western pharmaceutical. This western research supports why Ayurveda has long used jasmine essential oil for its grounding and calming effects. (Which is why it's a star ingredient in UMA's Pure Calm Wellness Oil.)
Jasmine essential oil's benefits extend beyond the olfactory and nervous system. This powerhouse naturally aids in ridding bacteria. It also improves the overall health of the skin by toning and addressing inflammation and improving elasticity (subsequently reducing the appearance of stretch marks and scars) and its phytochemicals help to build and strengthen the natural protective barrier of the skin.
If you're curious about the allure of Jasmine, consider UMA's Pure Calm Wellness Oil to relax, Flawlessly Firming Neck Chest & Décolletage Serum to tone and nourish the sensitive neck and décolleté, and Pure Energy Wellness Oil for a healthier alternative to caffeine. Its only take about four to five drops to indulge in this decadent, diverse oil. After all, Jasmine "is precious stuff," Jane Blankenship writes in her book Wild Beauty, and "a few drops bring a bouquet of beauty."
