How Is Jasmine Oil Made

Jasmine oil starts out by growing the plant. Its country of origin is China and Northern India it has since migrated to most parts of the world. It is a member of the olive family, which produces a sweet, exotic, richly floral, frequently Jasminemasculine aroma, depending on which jasmine flower is used. Night bloomers produce a different aroma than the morning bloomers. The blossoms are carefully picked, as it takes somewhere between eight thousand and ten thousand blossoms to produce one gram of oil. Bruised flowers can't be used as it spoils the oil. The number will depend on the variety of jasmine flower you are using.

The CO2 Extraction method is a great way to extract most oils however the cost would place the jasmine oil out of most consumer’s price range. The key point to getting quality jasmine oil is to start with the gentle picking of the blossoms. The solvent extraction method is the method most commonly used to make jasmine oil. It is process of using a solvent to separate out the beneficial materials in the blossom. The end result of this initial extraction is called the “concrete”. Once you have the concrete an absolute is then made by using alcohol, again to separate the components yet again. The next step would be distillation which is a process that converts the volatile liquid into a vapor and then back into a liquid, much like the distilleries used by our ancestors, only on a much larger scale. At this point the jasmine oil is extremely strong and actually needs to be diluted to be safe to use on the body. There are over one hundred components in the end product of jasmine oil. This entire process is also known as Enfleurage, which is the process of making oils from fresh flowers.

The way to dilute jasmine oil or any other oil is to use what is known as a carrier oil. Here you have to be careful as the oil you chose to mix as a carrier must blend with your scent. Try by mixing one ounce of the carrier oil to one drop of jasmine oil. Increase the jasmine oil by one drop till you get the scent you want. Wait a few minutes between drops to allow the scents to blend together.
