  1. There are well over 100 constituents found in jasmine oil, but the main chemical components are benzyl acetate, linalool, benzyl alcohol, indole, benzyl benzoate, cis-jasmone, geraniol, methyl anthranilate and trace amounts of p. cresol, farnesol, cis-3-hexenyl benzoate, eugenol, nerol, ceosol, benzoic acid, benzaldehyde, y-terpineol, nerolidol, isohytol, phytol etc. Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedEnfleurage is an old-school method that is way too time consuming. I'm wondering if dimethyl ether would work? Liquid butane is less volatile, but maybe not as effective at extracting the oil. If I were to use dimethyl ether, where would I get it, and what would be a good method at keeping it below its boiling point (-25C)? Butane maybe an easier route seeing how many BBQ tanks have it in them, but it is pressurized gas and I would want it in a liquid. Any ideas?? Thanks for the previous posts.
  2. I'm looking for an efficient way to extract the essential oil from Jasmine flowers. I've discovered a supplier that will provide me with the flowers for a very low cost, and I want to make an essential oil out of them. I know that for Jasmine, because of its fragile molecular nature, a solvent extraction is required. Steam distillation will not work; it will destroy the perfume of the oil. Does anyone know of an efficient solvent extraction method for Jasmine essential oil? Which solvent/s do I use? Thank you!
