A few words about jasmine
As we all know, jasmine is a very beautiful, evergreen climbing plant that adorns yards and house entrances. There are many varieties (about 300), which will thrive depending on the climate of each region, while its origin is from Central Asia.
Its height over the years can reach up to 10 meters, while its flowers are typically small, pink or white, with a strong delightful aroma that it offers during the flowering period, on summer evenings. It needs regular watering, rich sun but withstands low temperatures. It is a perennial plant, so if you decide to plant it in your garden, it will last over 10 years.
Jasmine gives its highly aromatic essential oil by distilling its flowers. And along with rose and neroli is one of the most expensive plant fragrances. For just a few drops of essential oil are required very large quantities of flowers, which are collected only at night.
Jasmine can be enjoyed either in the form of essential oil or in aromatic tea. When buying jasmine essential oil, be sure to get good quality to offer the healing and cosmetic properties that characterize it.
Jasmine essential oil goes well with citrus essential oils, rose, geranium, ylang ylang, ginger and palmarosa. It is widely used in aromatherapy.
