About this item

 

Also known as

Jasminum officinale, Jessamine, and Poet’s Jasmine.

Introduction

The jasmine is perennial climbing plant with sweet, highly scented flowers. It is native to the Himalayas, and is considered sacred throughout the region, specifically in India where it is the sacred flower of Kama, the god of love. It is intertwined into bridal flowers at weddings, and woven into garlands for important guests at diplomatic functions. Historically, it has been reputed to be an aphrodisiac, and is said to have a marked effect on frigidity. It is grown for perfumery in France, and added to alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, toiletries, moisturizing lotions, and aromatherapy oils. It is utilized in aromatherapy.

Alpha-terpineol, benzaldehyde, benzoic acid, benzyl acetate, benzyl alcohol, eugenol, farnesol, geraniol, jasmone, linalyl acetate, nerolidol, salicylic acid, vanillin.

Parts Used

Dried flowers.

Typical Preparations

Creams, washes, liniments, teas, and infusions.

Summary

There is a common misunderstanding in the herb market concerning dried Jasmine flowers, in that they impart very little fragrance. While most people would assume that the dried flowers are similar to the overpowering aroma of fresh flowers, this is simply not the case. The waxy exude on jasmine flowers which give it the scent we are all familiar with is incredibly volatile and will dissipate within days of being dried, and the result is a dried flower with only a hint of aroma still lingering.

Precautions

Women who are trying to get pregnant should avoid this herb, as well as women who are breast feeding. There is some evidence to show that it may lower blood pressure so caution should be exercised.
