Ruh Juhi


Ruh juhi is a precious essential oil made from jasmine flowers.  It is distilled at extremely low pressure and temperatures, in copper degs. This oil becomes a sought after perfume in itself.

The yield is less than half of what can be expected if the same flower is subjected to extraction with solvents. The aromatic profile is also different, as the steam distillation process captures more of the top notes than the absolute and less of the base notes.

Aromatic Profile for Ruh Juhi Attar

Top note:  Delicious, warm, fresh, sweet, fruity, floral notes

Heart note:  Complex sweet, floral, rich balsamic, honey notes

Base note:

Classification:  Heart note

Tenacity:  High

In natural perfumery, ruh juhi is used in sacred blends and perfumes, high class florals, and high end natural perfumes.  It should be further  diluted, as the aroma is still somewhat “compressed” and will not show its diversity until it is diluted.

More About Our Ruh Juhi

Size:  5 ml violet glass bottle

Botanical Name: Jasminum auriculatum

Source: India

Distillation: Steam distilled from pure fresh jasmine flowers, by the traditional method, using copper degs.  Diluted to 20% in pure filtered coconut oil.

Note:  The only difference between ruhs and attars, is that the attars are distilled into a sandalwood receiver, and the ruhs contain only the original plant’s oil. (We  also offer ruh motia, which is a similar distillation of a different jasmine species, Jasminum sambac).


Inhalation, diffusion, natural perfume blending, topical application, application to energy centers and meridian points.

A small amount of attar or ruh can go a very long way.  They should be diluted with a carrier oil for use.

It is a great support for childbirth, as it stimulates uterine contraction, and relieves pain.
