The Spirit of Jasmine
When using Jasmine through aromatherapy, inhaling the essence or absorption through the skin of Jasmine oil is believed to transmit messages to an area of our brains that govern our emotions. This region or Limbic system greatly influences the general nervous system.

It is widely believed that the lack of studies is primarily due to the fact that large pharmaceutical companies and other big businesses cannot control the production and distribution of Jasmine and therefore publicly pretend to ignore its usefulness in the field of health.
Notes on Quality:
All materials are free from pesticides, herbicides and do not contain any genetically modified materials. No animals were used for testing, just a few nice humans.
Pregnant women should use this with caution as it contains an Emenagogue. It can be quite relaxing and sedating. And of course those who are allergic to any of the ingredients should avoid its use.
Jasmine is a powerful healing plant, please use it in moderation, if you develop any unpleasant reactions, discontinue its use and consult with your local health practitioner before continuing.
