Jasmine Essential Oil has many benefits for our emotional and physical health and well-being. Its beneficial properties include: antidepressant, antispasmodic, expectorant, sedative, aphrodisiac and antiseptic.
This oil is made from jasmine flowers. It has an almost intoxicating fragrance. There are so many ways to enjoy this oil. I love that it smells amazing and has medicinal properties. Use it as a wonderful, floral perfume while you take advantage of all of its remarkable uses to improve your health.
1. Fight Fungal Infections
Apply jasmine essential oil to sites of fungal infections for quick healing. This oil often doesn’t need to be diluted with a carrier oil. Just put a few drops on your fingers and massage it into the affected area. The fungal infection should clear up within 2 weeks. Be sure to wash your clothes thoroughly to kill the fungal spores there, too. Put 5 to 10 drops of jasmine EO into your laundry along with your favorite detergent or make your own.
Mix 5 to 6 drops in 1 cup of warm water, put the mixture into a spray bottle and thoroughly spray your sneakers if you are fighting athlete’s foot. After the fungal infection clears up, mix a few drops of jasmine EO into your favorite lotion and use it as a moisturizer to keep the fungus from coming back.
2. Prevent Viral Infections
Mix 5 to 10 drops of jasmine essential oil into your favorite hand lotion and use it as a hand sanitizer. You can make the mixture stronger, or even use it straight from the bottle, too. Run a diffuser with 2 to 3 drops of jasmine oil to kill viruses in the air and fill the room with its wonderful fragrance.
3. Prevent Bacterial Infections
Apply jasmine EO to cuts, sores and abrasions to prevent or help cure bacterial infections. Put a few drops on your fingertips or a cotton swab and put it right on the sore after washing with a mild soap. You can use it several times a day.
4. Reduce Nasal and Chest Congestion
Practice jasmine essential oil aromatherapy to clear up nasal and chest congestion. Put 2 to 3 drops in your diffuser and run it for 30 to 60 minutes. You can also take a few deep inhales of the oil vapors directly from the bottle. You will be amazed at how quickly your sinus and chest congestion clears up. This oil is a remarkable expectorant. Be sure to drink plenty of water, too, so the phlegm can be easily eliminated. For a great vapor rub, mix a few drops of jasmine and eucalyptus essential oil into 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.
*Jasmine absolute or pure jasmine oil is very expensive due to the difficult extraction process. Because of this, jasmine essential oil is often already blended with argan or some other carrier oil.*
5. Alleviate Inflammation
Massage jasmine EO into any inflamed areas for relief. Its anti-inflammatory properties will provide fast relief. You can use it straight or mix it into a carrier oil, if you prefer. Coconut oil is great for this but any carrier oil will do. Jasmine aromatherapy helps reduce inflammation, too. The anti-inflammatory properties get into your blood stream through your sinuses.

6. Soothe Sore Muscles
Massage jasmine essential oil into sore muscles for quick relief. It will quickly reduce the pain and inflammation. I love coconut oil for this with a few drops of argan oil. Mix 1 tablespoon of coconut oil with 5 or 6 drops of argan oil then add 3 to 5 drops of jasmine oil. The coconut oil has a great consistency for massage and the argan oil speeds up absorption.
7. Stop Muscle Spasms
Use jasmine oil to get relief from muscle cramps and spasms. As soon as you begin to feel a cramp or spasm coming on, massage the oil into the muscle. It is a natural antispasmodic that will stop the spasm quickly. Jasmine’s anti-inflammatory properties will also prevent inflammation and soreness.

9. Alleviate Acne
Mix 2 to 3 drops of jasmine essential oil into 1 teaspoon of a light carrier oil and use this blend to moisturize acne-prone skin. You can also add jasmine oil to your favorite facial cleanser. For individual pimples, put a drop of jasmine oil on your fingertip or a cotton swab and apply it directly on the pimple. Jasmine’s antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties will clear it up quickly.
