Jasmine Aromatherapy: Uses and Health Benefit Of Jasmine Essential Oil

Jasmine aromatherapy uses jasmine flowers and/or essential oils. The distinct sweet aroma is useful for relaxation and as de-stressor. Because essential oils from jasmine are difficult to extract – 3 million 1-day old flowers are needed to extract 1 lb of oil – the resulting product is very expensive.

Still, because it is quite effective, it continues to be popular despite its high price tag.
