At amaiaa, we love a good oil, which is why our facial elixirs are formulated with the best nature can offer. This includes the exotic and seductive jasmine flower. Derived in Persia, jasmine is known for its sweet, intoxicating and arguably romantic fragrance.
We’ve all tried jasmine tea and smelled its sultry fragrance from an essential oil diffuser, but have you ever tried jasmine oil on your skin? Probably not! Let’s talk about all the amazing jasmine oil benefits for your face, skin and overall well-being (because beauty is about the inside too!).
Here are our favorite jasmine oil benefits:
Benefit 1 – Natural Antiseptic
The first jasmine oil benefit is that it can serve as an amazing disinfectant as it carries an abundance of natural antiseptic properties. Its components include benzoic acid and benzyl benzoate, which are chemicals that kill and inhibit both bacteria and fungi. Jasmine essential oil can speed up the healing of wounds and reduce the chance of infections (think, open acne blemishes!).
Benefit 2 – Great for Dry Skin
We love to have glowing skin all year ‘round! Jasmine essential oil is a wonderful component for skincare products given its healing, relaxing and glow-promoting benefits. This oil can aid the treatment of dry and irritated skin. It’s especially great for those who suffer from eczema outbreaks. Our saya facial elixir oil is formulated with this essential oil to promote restoration and healing to your skin and face while you sleep.
Benefit 3 – Provides Anti-Aging Benefits
It’s never too early to start the anti-aging process! That’s why jasmine should be a staple item in your skincare routine. Before bed each night, take some time to rub a few drops of the essential oil on your face and neck before applying your nighttime moisturizer. This will help slow the process of fine-line development on the skin as the oil helps promote collagen production, which helps fill in the space created by wrinkles.
Benefit 4 – Perfect Skin Moisturizer
Moisturizing your face and body is probably the most important skincare tip we can ever provide. Always moisturize your body after you hop out of the shower and your face and neck each night before bed and in the morning before makeup. However, a multi-step skincare routine can be taxing (and pricey) for some. So how can you reduce the number of products you use and time consumed without sacrificing the benefits provided to your skin? Use saya and atma facial oils. Our nighttime and daytime facial oils are specifically formulated to not only benefit your skin, but also eliminate tiresome steps in your routine. While atma and saya provide anti-aging benefits and help your skin glow, it also serves as a moisturizer. With our facial oils you can eliminate the need for an additional product, moisturize your skin and fight aging altogether!
Benefit 5 – Great for Sensitive Skin
This next jasmine oil benefit will surprise you! If you have sensitive skin, this essential oil is perfect for you. Jasmine is known to have soothing properties that can help comfort irritated, itchy, and dry skin without causing unwanted breakouts. It’s natural scent and completely natural formula will help bring a plant-based remedy to any skin condition you might be experiencing.
Benefit 6 – Works to Heal Scars
We all have scars and blemishes we work tirelessly to remove. No matter how much we scrub or how much concealer we apply, it still doesn’t reduce their appearance. Jasmine can eliminate acne spots, stretch marks and scars. This natural essential oil can even help reduce the appearance of cellulite! Jasmine is known as a natural cicatrisant, which targets scars and works to reduce their appearance.
Benefit 7 – Promotes Sleep
We’ve all been there – sleepless nights filled with tossing and turning and anxious thoughts. Most of the time, anxiety is the main culprit for that pesky insomnia. Jasmine can help clear your mind and relieve any tension you might be holding onto. With slight sedative properties, jasmine can help you feel instantly calm and relax your nerves.
Benefit 8 – Evens Skin Tone
Jasmine essential oil is a go to tonic for beautiful, balanced and glowing skin. It gets rid of dark spots and unevenness, plus helps lighten acne scars over time, revealing healthy, radiant skin. It is known to provide a natural glow when mixed with foundation or applied as a makeup primer.
Benefit 9 Helps control oiliness
A lot of us find T-zone oiliness or overall dull worn-out oily layer on our face, especially by end of day. This is due to excess sebum production in the skin that leads to that greasy appearance. Jasmine oil contains hormone-balancing attributes which can help in balancing the oils in our skin. It helps reduce oiliness without the skin feeling dry. Regular usage promotes a stable skin with healthy glow.
Benefit 10 – Striking Fragrance
The delicate, appealing and romantic scent of jasmine is no secret. Wearing the elegant scent of jasmine is proven to make you more attractive because of its aphrodisiac effects. Jasmine essential oil has a refreshing fragrance which you can smell over and over again as you love it at its first sniff! It can be used as perfume and works wonders in eliminating even the strongest of odors.
Benefit 11 – Mood uplifter
Well known for its calming, soothing properties, Jasmine essential oil also helps lower anxiety levels and eases restlessness, thus promoting a healthy happy mood. The endorphins released along with gentle jasmine oil massage improve blood flow and promote skin rejuvenation.
Bonus Benefit 12 – Protector of the scalp
Jasmine oil can help with dandruff, which is caused by extremely dry scalp. Moreover, the antiseptic properties of Jasmine help eliminate any bad bacteria from the scalp, thus minimizing scalp acne, dandruff and other irritating conditions. Being a natural healer, jasmine oil prevents infections and its nourishing attributes are restorative for hair follicles, as much as for skin, which helps in reducing hair breakage and promote healthy hair elasticity. Since we are all about holistic beauty, we thought we must share this added bonus benefit for a shiny, healthy mane!
