Introduction to Jasmine
Jasmine is most definable by its flowery, musky scent floating in the air. You only have to follow your nose on a windy spring day to find a bushel or two. It may not be noticeable at first, blending in with the overgrowth around it, but once you spot its delicate white flowers, you know you have found it! Crushing one of its flowers in your hand will prove the source of the smell. It is instantly fragrant, its oils secreting instantaneously.
Jasmine can grow weed-like in warm, moist environments such as the southern United States. And, as a vining plant, you may find it climbing (either purposefully or organically) up trellises, fences, and even exterior walls. Known scientifically as Jasminum officinale, Jasmine is a part of Oleaceae, a family of small evergreen flowering trees and shrubs. There are close to 200 native species that can be found in Europe, Asia, the Polynesian Islands, New Zealand, and Australia. Several of these species include Star Jasmine, Arabic Jasmine, Prime Rose, Coral Jasmine, and Orange Jasmine.
Many botanists believe that Jasmine originated in Persia, or modern-day Iran, from where it traveled to places like the Egypt Afghanistan, and Pakistan. It even made its way across the Red Sea to Turkey and Greece. There is much speculation, however, that many of the species that we cultivate today originated in China and other parts of Asia. Due to its excellent adaptivity in warm, humid climates, Jasmine has become a native shrub in many subtropical environments around the globe.
Jasmine has a plethora of both physical and metaphysical properties that have been utilized for centuries including for weight loss, boosting the immune system, and having a restful sleep. The word jasmine comes from the word “Yasmin” which translates to “gift from God” and it was named because of it’s amazing scent. It’s also sometimes called the Queen of the Night.
Jasmine Magical Uses and Purposes
Key Uses: Jasmine is an herb of modesty, freedom from the ego, a lack of vanity, and accepting credit with humility. This is an herb of quiet success and determination. Its energies encourage you to pursue goals that can help you better yourself and the world, not just for validation or attention. Jasmine reminds you that you will not get far with goals based on "someone else's dream" or in the singular pursuit of attention and fame. There has to be substance (true want and passion) in your goals and desires.
Jasmine is often used in spells and sachets to attract love and good fortune. Carry Jasmine on your person to attract money and good luck. Burn sprigs and flowers of the Jasmine plant induce prophetic dreams or to bring money to you. Like Lavender, Jasmine is commonly used to calm the nerves and reduce anxiety. Drink Jasmine tea for a restful night's sleep and for dream magic to induce visions and astral travel.

Cilantro is used to clear blockages from and balance the Heart Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, and Sacral Chakra.
The Heart Chakra is located near the center of the breastbone. It regulates our interaction with the external world. It controls what we embrace and what we resist. The Heart Chakra gives us the balancing ability to keep neither too aloof nor too involved in the world around us. It balances our inner being – our "self" with our environment.

he Solar Plexus Chakra is located between the rib cage and the navel is the first of the chakras for relationships. It controls the immune system and digestive systems. When in balance you have strength to fight infections, are free of allergic reactions, and are able to use the nutrients you ingest. You will also feel free to live your live how you want to live without living in fear of others. However, when it is out of balance, physical symptoms may manifest into low tolerance to infection, hormone disorders, or have low tolerance for many foods. On a more spiritual level you will feel worries, fear, and disappointment.
The Sacral Chakra, or Second Chakra is located below the naval and above the pubic bone at the front of the pelvis. It controls the flow of energy and is the center of gravity of the body. It is the center of the Life Force of the body. It is the reservoir of the life force and all life flows out from the sacral chakra. It controls the flow of information from the body to the mind and from the mind to the body. Gut feelings, intuition, and other “non-linear” communication comes from this chakra. When it is out of balance the symptoms will manifest themselves as confusion, over dependency on others, repression of feelings, inability to feel joy, fear of sensuality or sex, and frustration and bitterness. When it is in balance you have grace, feel pleasure in life, enjoy yourself, play, and find you are flexible in both body and mind.
Color Energy of Jasmine
The color ray for Jasmine is White. The white color ray brings in vibrations of cleanliness, purity, unity, and innocence. But these are fairly modern meanings and by no means universal. The timeless, natural powers of white rays are those of the moon.
White is the color we see when the moon reflects the sun’s light to us and the color of natural cycles. It is the color of beginnings and endings.
White is the color of the feminine gender, manifested as the Goddess in many cultures, and, as such, the color of the world of birth, and regeneration. It is the color of the full moon reflected on a snow-covered field. It is cold, but a sleeping cold that is inconspicuously reflecting great heat. White is the color of freedom and the color of hope.
White is often the color used for the spiritual world; one that is sensed but not seen. It offers illumination, innocence, purity, and unity. This color is one said to bring Moon energy and the ability to release you of burdensome inhibitions.

Aphrodite was the Greek Goddess of Love. Worshipped for her ideal beauty, Aphrodite held sway over matters of love, desire, and sexual pleasures. Aphrodite often represented unity and harmony, as well as blending or intermingling. This may explain the goddess' wide range of associations such as warfare and politics, realms where diverse groups had to work together as one. She was also, more specifically, the protectress of city magistrates.
Artemis is the Greek Goddess of wild animals, the hunt, vegetation, chastity, and childbirth. She was also the goddess of poets and artists. Artemis is often considered the Greek counterpart to the Roman goddess, Diana. She was the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and twin sister to Apollo.

She is often associated with Artemis, goddess of wild animals, hunting, vegetation, and childbirth and Hecate, goddess of magic, crossroads, witchcraft, and the Moon.

Dedicate altars, spells, and rituals to Selene to bring in energies of the Divine Feminine and to encourage psychic intuition.

Lore and Legends of Jasmine
The tea is not considered a “herbal tea” because it is actually a normal tea (green, white, black, or oolong) that is flavored with jasmine flowers to create the unique scent and taste.
During the Sung Dynasty (960-1279AD) in China, jasmine was revered for its scent.
In the 15th century, royalty in Afganistan, Nepal, and Persia loved jasmine so much that they ordered it be planted around their palaces. From there, it moved to Spain in the 1600's where it was enthusiastically embraced and adopted by other European countries such as Italy and France.
It may have originally come from Persia, through India, along with the cultural exportation of Buddhism to China.
According to a Tuscan legend, jasmine was so special that it was only cultivated by one man who bought it from Persian traders. He selfishly kept it in his secluded garden until falling in love. He relented his grasp over the jasmine flower and presented this woman with a jasmine flower bouquet. The beautiful fragrance was enough to make her fall in love with him and since then, jasmine has been ritualistically included in Tuscan wedding bouquets.
Another variation of jasmine myth tells a story of Cupid's desire to obtain this flower. Cupid supposedly encouraged the love match between the Tuscan gardener and his mistress. In fact, jasmine is now popular in wedding ceremonies across the world.
In Indonesia, jasmine flowers represent eternal life, nobility and beauty in women. It’s a very important part of traditional wedding ceremonies and is a sacred offering during Hindu ceremonies.
In parts of India, in particular, bunches and garlands of jasmine are sold outside temples, just as candles might be sold outside of some Catholic churches. Jasmine is not only used to honor gods, but also the dead.
Many believe that jasmine has the ability to purify an individual, specifically when they grow into different life stages, which is why it is also symbolic of hope and spirituality.
This flower is also used to make Gajra garlands in India, which are worn on special occasions as a good luck charm.
In many different Christian religions, Jasmine is a common representation of motherhood. It blooms in the springtime, during the month of May. To Catholics, this is considered the Month of Mary, a "month which the piety of the faithful has especially dedicated to Our Blessed Lady".
Jasmine is also linked to spring, when mother nature blooms these plants and nurtures them for the new season. For this reason many pagan religions use jasmine in their ceremonies.
In Thailand, for example, jasmine is similarly used as a symbol for motherhood, fostering both love and respect.
