Jasmine Absolute

Jasmine absolute is the proper name for pure jasmine essential oil. In fact there is no true jasmine essential oil. The process for creating an essential oil refers exclusively to a steam extraction process. However the delicate jasmine flowers are too fragile for this process, they would be completely destroyed.

The method that is used to make a jasmine absolute is called the organic solvent extraction method. This method uses a series of chemicals to extract the fragrance from the flowers. This process is done at a low temperature, unlike with a lot of essential oils, the fragrance of the oil is almost identical to that of the flower. When making essentials, the high heat can denature the end product, changing the scent of the oil from the scent of the original flower, root, seed, or bark.

When making jasmine absolute, any variety of jasmine may be used. There are 3 varieties that are available, with 2 of those varieties being most commonly used. Jasmine grandiflorum is the lighter smelling, more feminine scent. This flower blooms in the early morning and the scent is said to express the scent of early morning. The second of the 2 most common types of jasmine is jasmine sambac, which is also known as Arabian jasmine. The flower looks a bit different, having more petals than the jasmine grandiflorum plant and the scent is also much more exotic and masculine. This is often the variety that perfumers use when making cologne for men. There is a third variety of jasmine flowers used to make jasmine absolute, but it isn’t as well known as the others. It is called jasmine auriculatum and it has an aroma that is almost fruity. This variety of jasmine absolute is difficult to find however, and if the jasmine absolute doesn’t specify which variety it is, chances are that it is jasmine grandiflorum.

Any variety of jasmine absolute can be used in a blend that calls for jasmine. The variety you use may vary based on who it is being blended for, such as using jasmine grandiflorum for a blend for women and jasmine sambac for a blend for men. The jasmine absolute can be used in the same ways that all other essential oils can be used, such as in a diffuser, pure jasmine massage oil, lotion or bath.
