The sweet, pungent and fruity fragrance of jasmine essential oil comes from the Jasminum family. Jasmine is one of the genera of the 350 species in the Jasminum family. In some countries, the scent of jasmine is used during rituals to influence the psychic and emotional realm.
Effects on the brain
Jasmine has been found by research to contain many components that are also found in lavender. As a result, the scent of jasmine can inhibit central nervous system activity. This causes people to feel relaxing effects on autonomic nervous activity. This means that jasmine has a relaxing effect on the body.
The effects of fragrances on the body and on the brain should not be taken as medical advice. Fragrance is personal to everyone and can potentially have different effects for everyone.
