Jasmine is called Mistress of the Night or Moonlight of the Grove. There are over two hundred individual species of jasmine, which come from Asia, Europe, and Africa. The precise original location of jasmine is heavily disputed. Some botanists pinpoint as originating from India in the northern parts of the Himalayan valleys. Others place it as far away as Egypt or ancient Persia. The name itself, ‘jasmine’, comes from a Persian word meaning ‘fragrant flower’.
Egypt dynasties, Chinese emperors, and kings of Afghanistan, Nepal and Persia were all said to keep jasmine flowers in their royal gardens. One Chinese emperor, living in the time of the Sung dynasty, kept a large quantity of jasmine in the grounds of his palace because he enjoyed their scent so much. Historically, it has been reputed to be an aphrodisiac, and is said to have a marked effect on frigidity and impotence. It is grown for perfumery in France, and added to alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, toiletries, moisturizing lotions, and aromatherapy oils.
***
There is a common misunderstanding 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.
Magick uses:
Jasmine is a beautiful Lunar herb and is a perfect choice choice for all types of moon magick. Prophecy, dreaming and attraction are just a few. Jasmine especially corresponds to the Waxing Moon and used in love-drawing magick. It is said to attract spiritually pure love.
Jasmine can be burned, carried with you, or scattered. Try adding Jasmine to a dream pillow and herbal bath. It makes perfect anointing oils for receptive and feminine tools like scrying mirrors and chalices. Be respectful of this ancient mysterious flower and you will be rewarded with deep love and clarity.
