On my first night in India, many years ago, I purchased a bracelet of Jasmine flowers from a young man in the street. Out of all the sensory inputs that India has to offer I remember the smell of Jasmine the most, well that and the crazy hot food we ate that night.
It’s a soft, sweet, happy aroma to wear. Jasmine absolute benefits include:
- Sleep aid!
- Mood lifter
- Anti-anxiety and anti-depressant properties
- Moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties (soothes sensitive skin)
Dilute with a carrier oil such as jojoba, which will also bring down the cost per application.
