The name Jasmine comes from the Persian word 'yasmin' which means "a gift from God". Jasmine Essential Oil is extracted from the flowers of Jasminum Grandiflora. Around 8 million hand-picked jasmine blossoms are needed to produce 1 kilo of essential oil. The sensual, soothing aroma has made it a prized essential oil since ancient times. Jasmine oil helps to improve the elasticity of the skin.
