Jasmine Absolute can be produced in two main ways, by alcohol extraction from the concrete, or by alcohol extraction from the trays of fat used in enfleurage.
The latter process has become impractical and uneconomic, so most absolutes are now produced from concretes.
This intensely floral oil is dark orange in colour and somewhat viscous, but very little is required to add the characteristic odour to any blend.
For a wonderfully luxurious massage oil, blend 1 drop of Jasmine, 1 drop of Sandalwood and 3 drops of Mandarin in 10ml of Peach Kernel oil.
Try blending 1 drop of Jasmine and 1 drop of Neroli in 20ml of Coconut oil and dab a small amount on the wrists as an alternative to perfume.
Do not use in the first four months of pregnancy.
