Relaxation herbs such as jasmine are well known and well appreciated all around the world. Because 8,000 flowers must be hand-picked to make one gram (or 0.035 ounces) of this essential oil, jasmine oil is considered to be quite precious.

Jasmine can improve your health and decrease your stress levels if you combine it with a relaxation technique such as aromatherapy.
