Jasmin In One Word...
Jasmin is a truly exotic fragrace.
Known as the king of oils, it has a rich, pungent scent which is just intoxicating.
There is an enchanting ancient Indian myth, that I love, of a beautiful princess who fell deeply in love with the sun god Surya-Deva.
Tragically, according to the myth, the sun god rejected the princess’s love and she was heartbroken. Driven by her desolation into madness, she killed herself, no longer able to see a reason to live.
From her ashes that were scattered to the ground, a most beautiful jasmine bush grew. As a reminder to the sun-god that he was responsible for the princesses death the jasmine flower would forever only open and release her perfume at night.
The jasmine absolute essential oil is prohitively expensive, but when you consider how it is made you can see why, I suppose.
The flowers are collected at night and are left on cotton cloths soaked in olive oil until all the oil is extracted. The olive oil is then soaked in spirits. It must take days!!
As an aromatherapy treatment I would describe it as "the other end of the spectrum" to rose.
It's polar opposite.
is reminiscent of beautiful sunny days, jasmin is sultry evenings when its flowers fragrance are at their most tantalizing.
Where the English Rose is a pale, cool complexion, this oil is a hot dark one.
Where Rose is romantic love, then it is seductive and enticing.
As you would guess it is deliciously aphrodisiac, but it is also one of the most important oils in the treatment of anxiety and even depression.
It is reputed to be able to help impotence and also frigidity. How true that is I am not sure but I would definately say it kind of lifts you out of yourself in a way. It makes you a bit light headed and a bit nicely giddy so I can see that it may kind of separate you emotionally from these anxieties. It is certainly deliciously sensual.
It is recommended by many sources for childbirth as it strengthens contractions. I would have to say I would only agree if you were struggling with weak ones and labour was not progressing. Otherwise it is simply too potent in my opinion.
Having said that it does help to tone the uterus to expel the placenta so this is definately a help. In fact I think this is worth considering for buying a gift for a new mum, beautiful for that first bath after the birth. It being a uterine tonic, though, please do not use this range in pregnancy.
It is a wonderful treatment for hot, dry and sensitive skins. In particular acne or dark olive complexions. I can also say that I have never found a treatment like it for fading and healing scarring - another reason why it is so effective for acne.

Eau de Parfum
Jasmin (Acne ) Moisturiser 55mls £22
I have seen this cream do remarkable things. My sister Tash, had terrifying acne as a teenager mainly due to the fact that she was never out of the swimming pool and the chlorine irritated both her skin and her sinuses.
It really was fierce and always looked really hot and angry.
I have to say we never really got on as kids, (that's a tad understated !) but even then I used to feel sorry for her about it.
I was a godsend to her I think when she used this range.
I think that if you or your teenagers have acne, you will be amazed at how well it works, but more than that how gentle it is.
The antibiotic qualities heal the infection quite quickly so it attacks the root cause. The moisturiser is a hydrogenating baseso it won't lather on loads of oil and grease, it just gently cools all that heat down with the water in it.
Of course, the fact that it stops the skin from scarring is fantastic in itself.
I think I should point out that most acne treatments smell clinical and harsh, this is delicious. The fact that oils absorb through the skin though, means that the fragrance disappears pretty much immediately. So...boys, don't worry, you won't smell all flowery!
