Jasmine essential oil has been revered for centuries around the world for a variety of emotional benefits. European health programs highly value jasmine for helping to stabilize moods by working on the nervous system. It is considered both yin and yang - this means that wherever you may be weak, it can assist in creating harmony and balance by stimulating or sedatating both your body and emotions.
Jasmine beckons with a distinct exotic aroma that is floral, musky, sweet and sensual all at once. This premium essential oil has a unique ability to help both relax and uplift at the same time. It balances being strong, rich, warm and graceful…making sense that jasmine is called the King of Flowers.
The Evidence Supporting Jasmine
1) Research at Wheeling Jesuit University by Dr. Bryan Raudenbush, assistant professor of psychology, shows dispensing jasmine odor into a room where participants were sleeping “led to greater sleep efficiency and reduced sleep movement.” The research showed greater quality of sleep even though there wasn’t more quantity of sleep.
Participants who breathed jasmine in the air “rated their level of anxiety and vigor lower, and performed cognitive tests more rapidly.” In addition, “level of alertness in the jasmine odor condition was greater during the afternoon hours, thus helping maintain students’ focus on academic work throughout the day.”
2) The Journal Of Health Research from the College of Public Health Sciences, Chulalongkorn University in Thailand, reported that jasmine essential oil stimulates beta brain waves (brain alertness & thinking), as well as moods and nervous system. One test report showed “exposure to jasmine oil increased positive emotions including feelings of well being, active, fresh and romantic.” It goes on to say, “negative emotions such as feeling drowsy were significantly reduced.”
