Which Jasmine should I choose?
Jasmine grandiflorum and Jasmine sambac are very similar in therapeutic use. Grandiflorum blooms in the early morning and the Sambac variety blossoms late in the evening. While the aroma of these oils are fairly similar and both are intense, Grandiflorum has a more floral aroma while Sambac has a more exotic sharp aroma. Grandiflorum tends to be enjoyed more by morning people. If you are not a morning person, chances are you will be drawn more to Sambac.
Jasmine Sambac Essential Oil
|Available In:||Essential Oil, Tincture, Dry Herb Pack|
|Botanical Name:||Jasminum sambac|
|Country of Origin:||India|
|Aroma:||Both jasmines have beautiful fragrances. They are heavy, exotic, sensual, and soothing essential oils. The aroma of either jasmine is multi-faceted; much more so than most essential oils. All absolutes, because of their concentration and intensity, should be evaluated in extremely small quantities. Large amounts of these oils can overcome the receptor sites in the nose. The complexity of the fragrance, especially the rare and exotic notes, become entirely lost to our sense of smell.|
