- Jul 1, 2008Checking prices on the web, i found...
-- 1 fluid ounce of pure real jasmine, i.e., jasmine absolute, would
cost in the vicinity of $150 US, or likely more. I suspect you don't
-- Some vendors put a small amount of jasmine absolute into a natural
carrier oil, such as jojoba, and that runs around $30 per ounce. If
you have this, it should be safe.
-- Or you may have a synthetic, which is much more affordable, but,
as some people have pointed out, could have a problematic ingredient.
sometimes called "poorman's jasmine"
-- 1/2 fluid ounce of pure ylang ylang runs around $15 to $20 US. You
might have this.
-- If what you have is synthetic, it, too, could have a problematic ingredient.
In aromatherapy, both jasmine and ylang ylang are considered to be aphrodisiac.
Do the essential oils have a brand or vendor name? If so, that could
help in figuring out which type they are.
