The name “Jasmine” has its roots in the Persian word “Yasmin” meaning White Flower, but this popular flower has played an important role in many cultures throughout history. Its fragrant flowers have been used since antiquity in religious ceremonies. This delicate fragrant flower is said to symbolize the sweetness of women in China and divine hope in India. As a medicinal herb, jasmine flowers have an affinity for the reproductive system in both men and women. Its scent acts as an aphrodisiac, while also fostering feelings of love, compassion, confidence, and physical and emotional wellbeing. Smelling the essential oil of jasmine has been shown to alleviate seizures and depression.
Ylang Ylang is a very popular fragrance in the perfume making world, and is native to tropical countries such as Madagascar, Philippines, and Indonesia. This exotic flower’s scent is known to alleviate depression, anxiety and high blood pressure. Topically, it balances the skin’s sebum production to help with overly dry or oily skin.
Neroli essential oil is in fact the essence that is derived from the blossoms of the orange tree. First cultivated by the Arabs in the Mediterranean region, this scent has grown exponentially in popularity. Its fresh and floral aroma is unsurpassed in its ability to lighten one’s spirits.

Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens)
Geranium has been known since ancient times for its aromatic properties and has long been used in cosmetic products. The essential oil has been known as a “mothering” essential oil for its ability to help with the nervous system. At this point, it is no wonder that we associate Mother’s Day with flowers and other delicate, gently beauties of our world! In case you haven’t guessed it already, Geranium also acts as a wonderful mood booster and anxiety reliever.
