Jasminum sambac is a species of jasmine native to a small region in the eastern Himalayas, Bhutan and neighboring India. It is cultivated in many places, especially across much of South Asia. Typically, the flowers of this small evergreen shrub are harvested as buds during early morning. The buds have to be white, as green ones may not emit the characteristic fragrance they are known for. Open flowers are generally not harvested since a larger amount of them is needed to extract oils and they lose their fragrance sooner.
In classical Chinese medical terms, Jasmine essential oil nourishes water and clears fire. Its channel affinities are to the Kidney, Liver and Heart.
Practitioners may consider application of Jasmine Sambac essential oil directly to Kidney 6 to open the Yin Qiao Mai.
Major known chemical constituents: Methyl anthranilate, benzyl alcohol & acetate.
