Blending Base Measurement:
1% Essential oil in (5/10/30/50/100)mL = (1/2/6/10/20) drops per volume of essential oil respectively
2% Essential oil in (5/10/30/50/100)mL = (2/4/12/20/40) drops per volume of essential oil respectively
2.5% Essential oil in (5/10/30/50/100)mL = (3/5/15/25/30) drops per volume of essential oil respectively
Eye care = 0.5% Face = 1% - 2% Adult full body = 2% - 2.5%
*Remarks: Thin oil can apply onto skin directly. Thick oil is sticky, diluted with thin oil will be better
Proportion: Thick Oil 10-20％Thin Oil 80-90％
Jasmine in Jojoba Oil Jasmine in Jojoba Oil is also referred to as Jasminum sambac with many health benefits; reduce muscle pain, anxiety, stress, female balance, period pain, dermatitis, eczema, dry and sensitive skin. The following research will be used to show the efficacy of Jasmine in Jojoba oil; Antibacterial activity In a study that assessed the antibacterial activity of Jasmine flower hydro steam distilled essential oil against Escherichia coli (MTCC-443) strain. The study showed that it has a bactericidal activity with a minimum inhibitory concentration within 1.9-31.25 μl/ml due to the inhibition of cell membrane synthesis. Gastroprotective effects A study was carried out to evaluate the gastroprotective effects of ethanolic extracts of J. sambac leaves against acidified ethanol-induced gastric ulcers in rats. The rats were grouped into 7 different groups and were treated accordingly. Assessment of the acidity of gastric content, the gastric wall mucus, ulcer areas, and histology and immunohistochemistry of the gastric wall were done for the experimental group. The jasmine essential oil was effective as gastroprotective. Antifungal properties A study was carried out to evaluate the antifungal activity of J. sambac against Malassezia sp. implicated in skin diseases such as pityriasis versicolor, folliculitis, and atopic dermatitis. The methanol extract and essential oil from the flowers and leaves of J. sambac were tested against skin samples. The study concluded that J. sambac may be used as an alternative treatment against Malassezia-associated skin infections. Effects on the nervous system A study was carried out to investigate the effects of Jasmine essential oil on the functioning of the nervous system. A total of twenty volunteers were included and an electroencephalogram (EEG) was then recorded from 31 electrodes on the scalp before and after odor intervention. The treatment with jasmine essential oil had positive effects on emotions including the feeling of well-being, activity, freshness and romance, and reduced drastically negative emotions, for example, the feeling of drowsiness. Jasmine oil exhibited stimulatory effects on the function of the nervous system. Antibacterial and antioxidants properties A study was carried out on Jasmine leaves by extracting three solvents; n-hexane (n-Hex), ethyl acetate (EtOAc), and methanol (MeOH) via maceration. Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Escherichia coli, and Salmonella typhimurium were included to test the antibacterial activity and DDPH test to determine the antioxidant activity of the extract. The study showed that both MeOH and EtOAc jasmine leaf extract has broad-spectrum bacterial activity, while EtOAc extract has stronger antioxidant activity than the MeOH extract.
