Jasmine oil has many different health benefits that go beyond your skin, which we'll talk a little bit more about below.

These days, it can also be found in more tropical climates. As a plant and flower, Jasmine is known for its super sweet aroma, which is why it's been a popular ingredient in perfumes for centuries. You can also find jasmine oil in alcohol, sweet treats, and desserts.

Most commonly, jasmine has been used as an essential oil to help with things like improving mood and helping with depression. It promotes feelings of calm, positivity, and energy. It is also known for having antiseptic and antibacterial properties, which makes it an effective treatment for infections when used with a carrier oil. It can also be used in a warm bath to create a calming atmosphere.
