Historical Background of Jasmine Grandiflorum Oil
Jasmine Grandiflorum oil is an absolute oil obtained from the fresh leaves of a shrub, “Jasmine” (in the Spanish language) aka “Jasminum Grandiflorum,” in botanical terminology. The shrub is known with different names in different regions of the world, which include but are not limited to Catalan jasmine and Royal jasmine. It is endemic to the Arabian peninsula, East and Northeast Africa, South Asia, and Yunnan and Sichuan regions of China. “Jasminum” is the Latin form of the Persian word “Yasmin” that is used for sweetly scented plants – you’ll find that the name is best suited for “Jasmine Grandiflorum oil.”
One more important fact about the oil is that almost 8,000 carefully hand-picked jasmine flowers are needed to produce one gram of Jasmine Grandiflorum oil. One can estimate the value and preciousness of the oil with this fact. We source fresh flowers of Jasmine Grandiflorum and extract the oil through the solvent extraction process. The oil has an exotic, floral, deep, and rich aroma and a deep brown color with a golden touch.
Ancient Uses of Jasmine Grandiflorum Oil
For centuries, people of different civilizations have been using leaves, flowers, and jasmine oil for various culinary and medicinal purposes. People of India used the leaves of the shrub as Ayurvedic herbal medicine. In Buddhist cultures, the flowers, leaves, and jasmine oil were used in temples as fragrant agents. Moreover, the traditional fragrance industry made use of the oil not only in perfumes but also in hair oils and facial creams.
