Description

Jasmine Oil

Organic Jasmine Enfleurage Oil is one of the most precious oils in the world and is known for its heavenly aroma and fragrance.

Our Organic Jasmine Oil is pure and undiluted extracted by the process of Enfleurage. Most Jasmine Oil (Jasminum sambac) is extracted by harsh chemical solvents and is therefore called an “absolute” (Jasmine Absolute). Although our this oil is technically an absolute too, it is most rare, coming from a small grower/extractor in South America who extracts the essential oil by the ancient method of Enfleurage, using only organic palm oil and organic alcohol derived from organic sugar cane. FYI – Some refer to this jasmine oil extracted by the enfleurage method as an Essential Oil but, the proper term is an Enfleurage Oil.

Extracting Oils using Enfleurage

Jasmine flower cannot be distilled like most essential oils due to the delicate nature of the flowers. Enfleurage was the traditional method of extraction used in the 18th and 19th centuries and into the early 20th century but solvent extraction using hexane has virtually replaced the Enfleurage process (except, of course, for our own Jasmine Enfleurage). Solvent extracted Jasmine oil, called an “Absolute,” is used extensively by the perfume industry but, again, not by us. Both methods (Enfleurage and solvent extraction) are time-consuming and oil yields are quite small for the amount of plant material used. Nowadays the most commonly found Jasmine used by the perfume industry is entirely synthetic and has no healing properties whatsoever.

The Enfleurage oil that we carry, however, is made the traditional way: no chemicals other than organic cane sugar alcohol are used to create our Jasmine Enfleurage.

During the extraction process, fresh, fully-opened flowers are plucked from the Jasmine plant and carefully laid on trays covered with a layer of pure, organic Palm oil local to the distillery. The aromatic essential oils from the Jasmine flower petals slowly migrate to the Palm oil and the process is repeated until the Palm oil is completely saturated with the essence of the Jasmine flower. Then the Jasmine essential oil is separated from the Palm oil by cane sugar alcohol which then evaporates, leaving only the pure oil.

The process for producing the oil is quite labor intensive and requires many pounds of Jasmine flower petals per mL of oil, but the results are astounding. Most who close their eyes and inhale the aroma of the oil cannot differentiate it from the actual Jasmine flower.

Do note that initially, in addition to the aroma of the Enfleurage oil, one smells the aroma of Palm oil (a bit “earthy) but, if given a few moments to “breathe,” the floral aroma of the oil supersedes that of the Palm oil. Most noses love the aroma of our Enfleurage oils but, a few (less than 1%) of our customers smell more of the Palm oil than that of the essential oil (this has to do with differences in receptors in the nose). Since our enfleurage products cannot be returned for a refund, due to their rarity,we recommend that you first purchase a small sample vial to insure that you are not among the 1% of people who dislike the earthy note of the palm oil.

Jasmine essential oil is often enjoyed as a single-flower perfume oil.

Our Enfleurage Oil is part of our Artisan Quality line of essential oils.

At Artisan Aromatics, we have many different types of  Enfleurage Oils – Honeysuckle, Rose, Gardenia and more.

Due to limited supply, no returns for Enfleurage oils. To test, choose a sample pack: Sample Vials.

    Clean and uplifting Jasmine! Intensely attractive floral notes, possibly fruit like sweetness upon dry down. Lush and heady, white flower!
