Ingredient: Jasmine Sambac Oil

Oh, how we love the scent of jasmine. And we’re guessing you guys do too, since our Jasmine Body Oil is one of our best-selling products. Besides its romantic floral scent, here’s why we chose to work with jasmine sambac oil.

Jasmine sambac oil’s aromatherapeutic qualities are nothing to turn your nose up at (pun intended). Its refreshing and “green” scents bring about light and euphoric feelings — some even call it an aphrodisiac.

Spiritually speaking, jasmine is said to aid in eliminating anxiety, guilt, and emotional blocks. “With Jasmine, we are helped to understand that there is no division between physical and divine love,” says writer Patricia Davis about the way jasmine helps with intimacy in relationships.

On the more scientific side of things, jasmine is:

  • Antiseptic: It contains components that fight fungus, bacteria, viruses, and other germs. That’s why it's one of the ingredients in the Activate Facial Mask.
  • Anti-aging: Because of its antioxidants, jasmine can help protect your skin from damaging free radicals that come from the sun and environmental pollution. This can help preserve the youthful appearance of your skin. That’s why we feature it in the Orchid Facial Oil.
  • Moisturizing: Like many natural oils, jasmine oil helps treat dry skin and provide natural moisture that won’t clog pores.
