JASMINE SAMBAC ABSOLUTE
History & Mythology
She is an enchantress, this 'Queen of the Night', who works her magic through the nose and seduces her prey with the promise of lascivious joys. Cleopatra shamelessly borrowed this seductive power of flowers and doused her sails with Jasmine and Neroli oils as she went off to conquer the loins of Marc Antony - no wonder the guy didn't stand a chance. Despite its price tag Jasmine is among the best known and most popular essential oils. The cost however, is relative, considering the labour intensive process of production and the enormous amount of flowers required to obtain a single litre of oil: 1000kg, which equals about 8 million individually hand-picked flowers, are required to produce just 1kg of oil. Even so, it remains the most sought after oil of perfumers around the world. In India, the flowers of J. sambac are regarded as sacred,symbolizing innocence and purity of mind. Jasmine flower garlands adorn the temples and holy effigies or are offered to the Gods. At religious festivals the Gods themselves are thought to be present within the flowers. Jasmine flowers are never amiss at wedding ceremonies, and women like to weave a string of flowers into their hair, thus engulfing themselves with this beautiful, most sensuous of natural perfumes.
Jasmine is an excellent oil to use in tantric rituals and sacred unions. Its aphrodisiac properties act more on the mind, awakening it to sensory perception, than directly on the sexual organs. It rouses sensuality and opens the mind to the perception of divine beauty in all things. Jasmine gives wings to prayers makes a wonderful offering to the Gods. It helps the practitioner to connect with his purest intentions and highest aspirations.
Sweet and soft, seductive floral scent. Blends well with Neroli, Rose, Orange, Labdanum and Cadamom.
The most significant contribution of Jasmine to aromatherapy is its effect on mind and emotions. It eases labour pains and has some valuable properties that can regenerate tired tissue, help restore wrinkled skin and reduce scars and stretch-marks. It is a superb oil for treating sexual problems that are due to emotional coldness or anxiety and lack of trust. It is also excellent for all stress related issues: depression, nervous and mental exhaustion, burnout and anxiety. Jasmine has the power to dispel the dark clouds of negativity and to let the sunshine in. Avoid during first 4 months of pregnancy. Do not take internally.

QUALITY AND PURITY
We only supply the finest quality essential oils certified for Aromatherapy use. This assures that during the process of extraction, handling and bottling our oils receive all possible care and attention, and that the highest quality and purity is maintained throughout the preparation process.
** Pure essential oils are highly concentrated substances that should always be treated with due respect. Organic oils naturally are the purest oils available.
** Familiarize yourself thoroughly with the properties and uses of each individual oil you intend to use and take note of all cautions.
** Never take essential oils internally! *
** Do not apply essential oils neat (undiluted) to the skin. The recommended Aromatherapy standard dilution is 1 - 3%, though certain oils may be used in higher or lower dilutions. Consider each case individually.
** Always adhere to recommended safety standards and recommended dilution ratios.
** If you have sensitive skin or are prone to allergies test oil blends on a small area of the inner arm prior to general use.
** Keep oils out of reach of children and pets.
** Never allow essential oils to enter the eyes.
** If you are pregnant, consult a qualified aromatherapist for suitability and safety of specific oils. Many oils should not be used during pregnancy, some only need to be avoided for the first 3 - 4 months, others may be helpful during labour, but may pose a risk during the months before.
** If you suffer from serious medical conditions such as (but not exclusively) high blood pressure, cancer, thrombosis, varicose veins or epilepsy, consult a qualified aromatherapist for professional advice on recommended oils and dosages.
** We support the notion of people taking responsibility for their own well being. However, if symptoms persist or re-occur or you are suffering from a serious medical condition, or if you are presently taking prescription drugs, we recommend that you consult a qualified doctor or practitioner before attempting to help yourself. Look for a practitioner/doctor who you can trust and who is prepared to work with you in exploring natural health alternatives.

CARE FOR YOUR ESSENTIAL OILS:
Essential oils are highly volatile substances that easily deteriorate or simply "fly off" if not stored correctly. Keep essential oils tightly closed and store them away from any sources of heat, in a cool, dark place.
A NOTE ON ABSOLUTES
The prices for absolutes may seem high, but in fact merely reflect the vast amount of flowers needed to produce even a small amount of oil. True absolutes have unique and special fragrances which cannot be imitated synthetically. To keep these precious oils affordable and waste to a minimum we dilute pure absolutes to a 10% strength, ie. 1ml absolute to 9ml of light coconut carrier oil, quantities of 5ml and 10ml are supplied undiluted. *Offer Does Not Apply To Trade Customers
