This makes everything from work to spending time with friends or family hard. Just think about the glaze you often get over your eyes when you have been on one too many zoom calls.

Jasmine has been shown to affect brain function helping us with learning as well as problem solving. So instead of becoming frustrated with ourselves, or reaching for yet another cup of coffee, we can try reaching for Jasmine essential oil and make ourselves feel like concentrating is not an impossible task..

Antidepressant/Anxiety Relief

It does not matter if your brains decide to fall into depression or anxiety because in both cases Jasmine essential oils can help. This is nice because often depression and anxiety decide to double up and occur at the same time. Jasmine is known to awaken good feelings and help us release serotonin which can help uplift our mood. This is especially important for those of us who struggle to produce enough serotonin on our own. When our brains struggle it is important to have a wide range of options at our fingertips including essential oils.

Help with Falling Sleep/ Sleep Aid

  What is something we all seek, but the more we seek the harder it can be to find? In this case the answer is sleep.

Jasmine has been shown to both help with falling asleep as well as staying asleep all night long since it is a gentle all natural sedative. In addition Jasmine essential oils can help minimize the emotional and physical sign of having low energy. When we are struggling to sleep we should reach out for the gifts that the natural world has provided us for these exact situations.

The active ingredients in Jasmine oil can help our bodies fight harmful viruses and bacteria. Which means that breathing in jasmine essential oils by using a diffuser can help clear mucus as well as help with respiratory symptoms. In addition when externally used on wounds, Jasmine can help prevent a wide range of possible infections. Add Jasmine to your daily routine in order to keep yourself healthy inside and out.

Heal Skin

  Our skin keeps us happy and healthy. It keeps the outside world out and the inside world in. Knowing this it is great to know that Jasmine can come to the resume and help out in a number of different situations. Jasmine essential oil has been shown to diminish scar marks on the skin helping keep our skin youthful looking. Using Jasmine oil on your skin may also decrease inflammation, redness, and pain as well as speed up time required to heal wounds meaning you can feel more comfortable in your own skin.
