Definition: Jasmine

Jasmine is a vine that breeds white, star-shaped flowers (some varieties are yellow or purple). They grow from April to September and there are more than 200 known species. The flowers give off a sweet, strong scent popular in women's fragrances, and when pressed, their essential oil can be extracted through an expensive and elaborate process called enflourage.

The highest quality of jasmine is grown in the perfumery capitol of Grasse, France. It also grows naturally in India, China, and Australia. Jasmine is also used in a raw form to balance hormones, treat depression, improve the appearance of stretch marks, and soothe sensitive skin. It is used in tea to calm nerves and to reduce headaches. Additionally, Yasmin (Persian for Jasmine) is a popular name for girls.

I so love the smell of fresh jasmine. Lucky for me I run across a lot of houses in the city who grow it and nothing beats a huge whiff of fresh jasmine during a walk.

Burning jasmine and lavender candles in my bedroom about an hour before I go to sleep helps me sleep wonderfully!
