J is for Jasmine & Juniper

Jasmine:                              Jasminum officinale                              Keyword: Aphrodisiac

This is one of the most expensive oils and is often referred to as the King of Oils. It’s heady exotic aroma and makes a luxurious massage oil. It is one of the essential oils that I would recommend buying already diluted in oil, due to the cost. 5% in base oil puts it in most people’s pocket. Use as mentioned in blends, or add to runing water in the bath.

Personal testimony of dealing with sluggishness brought on by eating Chinese food. Used to feel really lethargic the day after a Chinese takeaway until I stumbled upon Juniper oil and used it in a burner when eating my Chinese take-away. Lethargy the day after is now a thing of the past.
