Jasmine grandiflorum floral wax
Botanical Name: Jasminum grandiflorum. Country of origin: India As always, this wax provides the exotic and sensual aroma of Jasmine. As is the norm with all floral waxes, this wax is an excellent moisturizer with very good emollient action. Use in products in .4 to 6% range.
Floral waxes are plant waxes made from flowers. During production waxes such as beeswax are not added, the resulting wax is a result of separation of the concrete as explained below. Floral waxes are usually produced from delicate flowers in order to retain their fragrance. Steam distillation would destroy the fragile scent molecules.
Freshly picked, carefully selected flower heads are mixed with a solvent to produce a concrete. When mixed with a high proof alcohol and then chilled, the concrete separates into a fragrant liquid and a waxy solid. (To make an absolute, the alcohol is removed from the liquid via evaporation, leaving the absolute.)
Floral waxes are less expensive than absolutes and add emolliency, scent and color to creams and lotions. Recommended use rate is up to 10%. Floral waxes also work very well for scenting lotions; 1 oz. of floral wax is equivalent to about 1/2 oz. of the corresponding absolute.
Floral waxes work well to scent a lotion or other body product, a tiny amount is all that’s needed to scent the complete recipe. Melt the wax over very low heat and add it to your recipe. Floral wax usually constitutes 2% of a final recipe.
Floral wax might be too expensive to use in CP or HP soap, you’d need to use too much to get scent without it getting lost in the process. Large portions of the wax are unsaponifiable, so your soap might actually feel a bit “waxy” by the time you added enough to get a noticeable scent.
Floral waxes can be used to scent a product – it all depends on how strong a scent you want. It’s advisable to keep your floral wax usage to below 10% of the final product weight. Most floral waxes are strongly scented enough that you will have a fair amount of fragrance coming through at that ratio.

Smells great, even a decade on...
I started making homemade cosmetics and especially solid perfumes about twelve years ago, but due to family priorities, stopped around nine years ago. All of the unused raw material from that time, of course, has been long gone except for three forgotten and discreetly tucked away, and tightly sealed, Mason jars, the contents of which were floral waxes ordered On September 9, 2007 from Camden-Grey. About three months ago, I was cleaning my basement and came across the three jars containing the waxes. Apprehensive about opening them, I brought them upstairs and they sat on my desk for a few days until I finally got up the courage to unscrew the ring on the jar containing the Jasmine Grandiflorum, and WOW, before I even took off the partly sealed lid I could smell the lovely and familiar fragrance. To me, it smelt as wonderful as the day I put the wax into the jar (as did the Rose and the Tuberose). Not only did this scent rekindle an old passion in me, making perfume, it got me looking for other floral waxes to use, so I placed an order from a company that had a larger variety of waxes than CG offered. WHAT A MISTAKE. The "fresh" floral waxes that I received were no where near as fragrant as the ten year old waxes that I had ordered from Camden-Grey. Now, because I cannot find any information on the shelf life or stability of my ten year old waxes, I don't know if they can be used in my solid perfumes, most likely not, and I will err on the side of caution and not use them, but I refuse to get rid of such a lovely gift from nature and think that maybe I will put small pieces in muslin bags and use the bags in my dresser drawers. Moral of this story: Buy your floral waxes from Camden-Grey, you will not be disappointed.

Such a wonderful smelling wax! I can't get enough of the smell of Jasmine! Great Product and it mixes well with other EOs. Definitely will be buying more of it in the future!!!

I really need to get more of this floral wax very soon! It smells divine! But also works wonders on the hair in a conditioning treatment I developed. The end product is compareable to the expensive Phyto line you can find at Ulta stores, but I have to say mine is much better, cheaper, & chemical free.... Something they cant claim :0)

I could smell this before I opened the bag! It has an absolutely marvelous scent. Mix half and half with a soft oil (make sure to melt it gently!!) and just a few drops of ylang-ylang essential oil for the most rich, and feminine solid perfume you've ever had.

Jasmine floral wax
This was a surprising product. It smells wondeful! It is a WAX! I added a chunk of it to soap at first trace... the first time, it stayed in little chucks that time. The next time I added it to the oils during the heating. It worked better the second time! It needs to be melted, but I was afraid of losing the scent. It dispersed better when melted in the oils and did not lose it scent.
