Safety Data or Cautions: Jasmine oil can produce allergenic reactions in people with fragrance sensitive dermatitis. According to the reference Essential Oil Safety, it is recommended that max dermal application be under 0.7%. With Jasmine oil a little bit goes a very long way so using 1 drop in a blend may be enough. This oil is expensive and often adulterated or synthetically made so it is important to buy from a reputable source.
Blends well with: Bergamot, Clary Sage, Balsam Copaiba, Coriander, Frankincense, Ginger, Petitgrain, Rose, Sandalwood, and I find many citrus also blend nicely such as Yuzu.
As you can see Jasmine has several therapeutic benefits, blends well with many other oils and can be useful for helping with depression, self confidence, tension and pain.
1 drop Jamine, 2 Yuzu, 1 drop Sandalwood in 30 ml of Jojoba and apply as perfume.
