The beautiful floral scent of jasmine is one of our favourites. Unlike its delicate flower, its scent is rich, exotic, tenacious and warm and it’s often described as the King of essential oils.

With its bold and heady fragrance it’s no surprise that the scent brings along a whole range of benefits with it…

It uplifts the mind and soul


Jasmine creates helps to create those thoughts of happy, happy, happy!

By stimulating the feel-good hormones in the body, such as serotonin, anyone using jasmine can expect a boost of energy and uplifted mood.

It clears the mind…

Clear thoughts

With a clearer mind comes mental clarity and alertness. What’s more, when your mind is clear symptoms of depression are often reduced.

The super scent seems to help bring problems into perspective – drawing a person out of depression and helping them see a problem for what it really is. It offers little choice other than optimism!

… and your respiratory system

Clear breathing

The sweet floral scent of jasmine provides relief from coughs by helping clear out the accumulation of phlegm in the respiratory tracts.

Great for use before bedtime, it should help to ensure a toss and turn-free night.

It can tackle a wide range of emotional issues…


From depression, to despair, fear, grief, insecurity, loss of self-confidence right through to trauma – jasmine is often the essential oil used to tackle these issues.

Like lavender, it’s an excellent shock releaser and mood changer.

… ensuring a good night’s sleep


By tackling those problems that keep us awake at night one can be assured of a good night’s sleep with jasmine.

It acts as a sedative and also has anti-inflammatory properties reducing emotional issues and the pain of physical issues that may otherwise prevent a good night’s sleep.

It clears up dry, troublesome skin

Clear Skin

When used as an essential oil in skincare it is particularly helpful for dry, troublesome skin. In fact, it has even been used to treat dermatitis when a skin condition has come on as a result of stress.
