4 Benefits of Jasmine Scent as Aromatherapy
The common jasmine plant, originally from northern Iran, grows in tropical climes all over the world. When in bloom, the white flowers release a sweet odor that fills the air. The captured scent of jasmine is well-loved and used in many renowned perfume brands. As aromatherapy, the jasmine scent provides many benefits.
Uplifting Effects of Jasmine Scent
Jasmine scent is linked to the arousal of your autonomic nervous system. A study determined that subjects exposed to jasmine oil aromatherapy experienced increased breathing rate, blood oxygen saturation, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure. The scientists noted this as a stimulating or activating effect of the jasmine.
Ultimately, this means you may feel more alert, clear-headed, and energetic after smelling jasmine, which can help relieve symptoms of depression or menopause. Even if you don't suffer from these conditions, you can light up a jasmine candle as a pick-me-up during a difficult day.
Jasmine is a great tool to have at your side during challenging moments. It is purported to relieve anxiety related to stressful situations, such as childbirth or a trip to the dentist’s office. This is also due to its stimulating effects rather than relaxation or sedation.
Feeling clear-headed and confident puts you in a better position to handle whatever is coming your way. This feeling of being in control helps to combat your fight-or-flight instinct when anxiety kicks in. Keep a jasmine-scented candle in places where you’re more likely to experience anxiety, such as at work.
Setting the Mood
The smell of jasmine is often described as romantic. The flower itself is a symbol of love and fertility in many parts of the world. In addition to jasmine’s stimulating effects, it’s not hard to imagine why it has the label of aphrodisiac.
Increasing blood flow and stimulating your mind can lead to heightened reactivity in the bedroom. Because jasmine scent is also great for uplifting your mood, jasmine can help to stir up amorous feelings. Not to mention, a candlelit ambiance is romantic all on its own.
Treating Aches and Pains
Many medicinal uses of jasmine call for topical application, such as massaging jasmine oil into the body to treat cramping, swelling, or arthritic pain. However, as aromatherapy, it can still work its magic. There is research to suggest that it is an antispasmodic, and jasmine scent is traditionally used to relieve spasmodic coughing.
