Jasmine Sambac is the variety of jasmine flower that is more
masculine in scent, truly earning the name “king of
flowers”. Rose is known as “the queen of flowers”.
This variety is also known as Arabian Jasmine or Chinese Jasmine
and it has a more exotic smell than the other common variety
of jasmine flower, Jasmine Grandiflorum. The flower also looks
different than the Jasmine Grandiflorum blossom. The blossom
of the Jasmine Sambac plant has a blossom similar to the lotus
flower or a rose blossom. Other varieties of jasmine blossom
flowers have a 5 petal blossoms that are star shaped. This
variety of jasmine flower is night blooming, meaning all harvesting
of this flower is done before sunrise.
It takes 8,000 to 10,000 blossoms to create one gram of jasmine
sambac absolute. The blossoms must be individually harvested
by hand and a good harvester can harvest up to 15,000 blossoms
in a day. Bruised or damaged flowers are useless for extracting
oil, therefore most of the process is done very carefully
by hand. What makes it an absolute is the extraction process.
To be called an essential, the oil must be steam distilled.
However steam distillation would completely destroy the delicate
jasmine sambac flower. There for a solvent extraction process
is used. The properties of the oil that is produced is nearly
identical to other essential oils that are steam distilled
and it is therefore just as beneficial to the body as an essential.
There are a wide variety of uses for jasmine sambac. Any
aromatherapy blend that calls for jasmine can be made with
jasmine sambac. All the different varieties of jasmine can
be used interchangeably, but be aware of what each scent smells
like, as it may affect how well the blend works for you.
Jasmine sambac absolute is particularly effective as an aphrodisiac.
Its warm exotic scent blends well with sandalwood, ylang ylang,
or patchouli for use in massage oils, body lotions, used in
directly in the bath or in a diffuser. Be aware that using
any essential oil in a bath is nearly 100 times more potent
than any other modality, since the warm water opens the pores
and allows more of the constituents to enter the body. If
this is how you plan to use it, use only a few drops to avoid
any negative effects. If you plan to use the oil in a diffuser,
add 5-10 drops to the bowl. Allow it to burn for 30 minutes
and then blow out the flame. The oil is warm so it will continue
to scent the room without scorching it.
