    Aim: The aim of the study is to determine the in vitro antidiabetic activity of jasmine oil. Introduction: Jasmine is a genus of shrubs in Oleaceae family. Jasmine oil is used as an essential oil, and it is reported to have antimicrobial, antidepressant, and stimulatory properties. Diabetes mellitus (diabetes) is a group of metabolic disorders in which there is an elevated blood sugar level over a prolonged period. Materials and Methods: Jasmine oil was purchased from the market commercially and its in vitro antidiabetic activity was studied using inhibition of alpha-amylase activity and glucose uptake assay. Results and Discussion: Jasmine oil inhibited the activity of alpha-amylase in a dose-dependent manner. It also showed enhanced glucose uptake in rat L6 myogenic cells. These two activities will cause a decrease in the blood glucose level, which is essential in the treatment of diabetes. Conclusion: Jasmine oil showed in vitro antidiabetic activity.
