JASMINUM GRANDIFLORUM FLOWER EXTRACT

We intentionally chose jasmine as one of eight essential oils found in our Evening Body Serum and Evening Aromatherapy Candle because of its intoxicating scent, which may reignite a memory that changes your mood. Especially crucial if your day has left you feeling tense or stressed. It's essential to be calm and relaxed at night, as this emotional state will help you avoid a restless night.
Jasmine is a Middle Base note. Its aromatic profile is warm and floral, blends beautifully with the bergamot, cedarwood, and ylang ylang essential oils found in Evening Body Serum and Evening Aromatherapy Candle.
Evening Ritual Inspiration
Be a Queen of the Night in your own home and give yourself permission to take the night off, dine by candlelight, and take a warm bath. Massage Evening Body Serum into warm, damp skin, light our Evening Aromatherapy Candle, and then dress in something silky to round out your evening.
The jasmine flower comes from the Oleaceae plant family and is thought of as one of nature's aphrodisiacs because of its seductive scent. The flower's harvest is typically performed at night (or before the sun rises) when the white blossoms are at their most fragrant. Jasmine appropriately has the nickname "Queen of the Night"!
The essential oil from jasmine is produced via solvent extraction because the small white flowers are so delicate. The essential oil is quite expensive as it takes a lot of flowers to make very little oil.
CANANGA ODORATA FLOWER OIL
Ylang ylang — floral, sweet and sultry
Helps to reduce anxiety and boost self-esteem: SOURCE
Ylang ylang essential oil found in Evening Body Serum and Evening Aromatherapy Candle was intentionally chosen because of its warm, sweet floral scent, a welcome distraction from a frazzled mind.
As a Middle Base note (along with cedarwood, jasmine and, palo santo), ylang ylang brings depth and stability. Its aromatic profile, floral, sweet, sensual, and faintly musky, is beautiful against the bergamot, cardamom, cedarwood, jasmine, and yuzu essential oils found in our serum and candle.

Ylang ylang, pronounced ee-lang·ee-lang, comes from the Annonaceae Plant family, which, interestingly enough, contains only one species — Cananga odorata, known as the Cananga tree. In Malayan, ylang ylang means "flower of flowers." Best known for its aphrodisiac qualities, ylang ylang originates from South East Asia.
Ylang ylang is steam and water distilled in stages called fractions from the beautiful flowers of the large, tropical ylang ylang tree to obtain its essential oil.
