Botanical Name: Jasminum grandiflorum

INCI Name: Jasmine grandiflorum flower extract oil

Disclaimer: The following information is provided by Khush Ingredients as a summary of information from manufacturers.  All information is provided without warrant or liability.

Description:

Jasmine is a widely spread plant, cultivated across Northern Africa and South Asia, where it is important as a national flower and in religious rituals. It was first imported to Europe in the 16th century, and has been used in personal care, aromatherapy, and to create green accords and floral notes in fragrances.

There are two main types of Jasmine, the sweeter Jasmine Grandiflorum, which this specification relates to, and Jasmine Sambac, a more unusual, spicier absolute available by special request.

Jasmine flowers are gathered, usually by hand, but are too temperature sensitive to be successfully be steam distilled.  As such the essential oil is extracted using a solvent, normally hexane, which produces a concrete.   The concrete is then converted into the absolute oil.

For those unsure, a concrete is the waxy solid produced when the petals are immersed in the solvent, like hexane, which brings out the oily and waxy components from the biomass.  The absolute is produced by gently heating the concrete with alcohol to recover the solvent and leave an intense oil known as the absolute.

Due to the volatility in availability of the flowers, Khush Ingredients maintains two producers of Jasmine Absolute, one in India, where harvests tend to start in June each year, and one in Egypt where harvests begin in August.

We would not like to express a preference for either source.  The output from both are beautiful grades of Jasmine oil that do not disappoint,  Our customers usually have a preference for one or the other, but in reality, we tend to purchase from the growing region based upon the best current value.  Khush does not change it’s sources, when we but Indian it is from the same production site and when we buy Egyptian, it is from our partner International Aromatics in Alexandria.

We have also just introduced an organic jasmine grandiflorum absolute from a different producer in Egypt, This is subject to a different specification sheet in the Organics section.

Whilst we sea freight from sources just after harvest time, we support that with air freight as the cost of air freight is relatively small in comparison with freight costs.
