A Scent-a-Day with EdieAnne: LunaWhite florals — jasmine, sweet pea, and freesia — juicy berries, and sandalwood shimmer like moonlight.
"As far as jasmine oil's applications in aromatherapy, quite a bit of research has been done. Toho University School of Medicine in Tokyo, Japan, indicated that jasmine stimulates brain waves and enhances mental alertness. Using jasmine helped computer operators reduce their number of mistakes by 33%."
Besides being a very popular name for a girl these days, many uses for jasmine have been found in the last several years. The number one benefit for Jasmine is it's calming effect. Jasmine is frequently used in aromatherapy. Jasmine aroma appears to have sedating and relaxing properties. It is often seen in message oils, in teas and in our own Scentsy wax. I found it interesting that ritual baths in India call for anointing with jasmine, in addition to other exotic spices, and the oil often featured in esoteric Tantric practices, hence its legendary reputation as an aphrodisiac! hmmm I suppose that your own sniffer would determine if that was the case for you. LOL All in all Jasmine's scent is rich and warm, with a sweet, fruity undertone. People often describe it as an exotic scent that calms, soothes, and heals. I believe this scent would be perfect in the bathroom while running a bath and relaxing to music!
