Jasmine Essential Oil
Jasmine essential oil is extracted from the flowers of the Jasminum grandiflorum and Jasminum sambac shrubs. Interestingly, the former shrub blooms in the morning and the latter in the evening.
Either way, both are said to have aphrodisiac qualities which isn't hard to believe considering it's lovely rich floral scent.
