Ayurvedic Wisdom for Jasmine Essential Oil
According to the ancient healing system of Ayurveda, jasmine oil is an antidote to the Vata and Pitta dosha (the biological forces of wind and fire). Therefore, by balancing ‘wind’, jasmine oil will assist in slowing down the anxious and upset mind and will support joy and peaceful feelings. When jasmine oil is used amorously, it elevates romance into a spiritual experience. By balancing ‘fire’, jasmine oil will decrease the excess heat in the body and mind and will support a cool, relaxed and clear mind. Jasmine’s watery coolness will help to put out the fire of Pitta.
Interesting Jasmine Essential Oil Information

Steffen Arctander: “Jasmine absolute is used in such a multitude and variety of perfumes that it is hardly possible to establish a rule for its use. ‘No perfume without jasmine’ is an old saying, and this is not far from the fact. The jasmine-rose complex forms the more important part of numerous ‘grands parfums’ as well as quite ordinary perfumes and bases. The floral note, when required, is provided by the addition of jasmine in 8 out of 10 cases.”
