Jasmine absolute refers to the process of making all the different types of
jasmine essential oils. The blossoms of the jasmine plant
are very fragile and must be handled with care, if bruised
it will destroy the scent. Because the flowers are so delicate,
the steam distillation process would destroy them. But to
be called an essential oil, they must be steam distilled.
Jasmine oil is extracted using a solvent extraction method,
which makes it an absolute. Another example of a delicate
flower that can’t be steam distilled is the rose.
Depending on the variety of jasmine flowers, they are harvested
either in the morning or evening. Approximately eight thousand
to ten thousand blossoms are needed to make one gram of oil.
Depending on the carrier oil used to dilute the jasmine absolute
oil, only a few drops are needed as the scent is strong. This
oil is known for its wide variety of uses. The body will absorb
the beneficial components of the oil just like any other nutrient.
The jasmine absolute oil will stimulate the immune system,
destroy bacteria and it is a powerful antioxidant.
It will take approximately twenty minutes to be absorbed
into the body and will remain for several hours before excreting.
In aromatherapy the scent of the oil is the key to the therapy.
When we smell these aromas a message is sent to different
parts of the brain where the process of stimulating hormones
and chemicals in the body begins. Jasmine absolute oils can
be used frequently throughout the day in your body lotions,
shampoo, perfumes, soaps and oil diffusers to aid in relaxation,
as an anti-depressant, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, when you need
to feel more confident, or optimistic. For an important business
meeting carry a small bottle with you and just smell it about
thirty minutes before going into that meeting, you will be
much more relaxed and confident. Try adding five drops to
your bath just before bed time. It works wonders for a romantic
mood, by adding ten to fifteen drops to approximately seven
ounces of almond oil and use as massage oil.
Fragrances can bring out strong emotional responses from
the brain which stimulates hormones and other chemicals and
can bring healing changes to the body. Jasmine absolute oil
will easily blend with other oils to bring out the responses
you want. The trick is to get creative one drop at a time.
Keep close records on how your blend affects you physically
and emotionally. What was the end result? Did you accomplish
what you wanted?
Shri Sathya Sai Baba thought of the day -
Expansion is the key note of education. The first step for this expansion is the home, where you must revere and please your parents who gave you this chance to live and learn. If you ill-treat them or inflict grief on their minds, how can you ever gladden others by service and understanding? You know that when a balloon is blown, it bursts and the air inside it merges with the vast limitless expanse outside. So too your love must fill your home and your society, and finally burst even those bonds and become worldwide. A drop of water held in the palm evaporates soon; it is very alone. But drop it into the sea - it survives! It assumes the name, the majesty and the might of a sea! Cultivate the seeds of love in all hearts!
- Divine Discourse, July 25, 1975.
