Botanical Name: Jasminum Grandiflorum L
Place of Origin: The Jasmine is native to tropical and warm or temperate regions of the old world. The Jasmine flowers are white in most species, with some species being yellow. The Jasmine is believed to have originated in the Himalayas in western China. The flowers are small and milk white in colour with a beautiful and persistent odour which has the tendency of filling the space where it grows. The scent of the flower is most evident in the night that is why it is also known as “Raat ki Raani” in India. ‘Chameli’ is the most common and popular name by which the Jasmine flower is known in India. Many poets from all around the world, deploy Jasmine as the symbol of delicate feminity, piety and beauty. According to poetic jargon, the scent of Jasmine is enough to intoxicate a lover into enticement.
An interesting fact about the name ‘Jasmine’ is that the name Jasmine is a girl’s name of Persian origin meaning “gift from God”. Jasmine was derived from the Persian word yasmin, referring to the jasmine flower. Scented oil was made from the plant, and it was used as a perfume throughout the Persian Empire. Thus, Persian Culture actually popularised the cultivation of Jasmine to produce attar.

Method of Extraction: To preserve the purity of the Frangipani flowers, the traditional ‘Deg and Bhapka’ is generally employed. In this method:
• The flowers are plucked in early morning before the sunrise by experienced farmers or collectors and they take them to the distillery nearby. • The copper pot or deg are then sealed using a mixture of clay and cotton. • The deg is connected by a bamboo pipe (referred as Chonga) to a copper receiver (Bhapka) and a water tank. • Once done, a fire is lit and the pot heated. • After few hours the first distillate is condensed and the liquid is connected. • The liquid is transferred to an empty copper pot and distilled again.
• In the 2nd distillation the true attar is extracted.
• Jasmine Attar is used to provide relaxation to mind and body.
• It is used to treat stress, depression and insomnia.
• This attar is widely used for massage therapy and supports joints and muscles.
How to Apply:
• Take a small quantity of the attar and apply it on the ineer side of wrists. Then rub both the wrists against each other.
• Apply on the inner side of each earlobe, then gently rub it.
• These are the exterior pressure points of our body which allow the fragrance of attar to linger for a long time.
