The Amazing Magickal Properties of Jasmine | Welcome To Wicca Now

Hi, my loves and welcome to WiccaNow. Recently I’ve been writing about all my favourite magickal herbs and plants with this botanical witchipedia, as well as writing individual posts about the magickal properties of mint, another post about bay leaves, one about chamomile and most recently a post about the wonderfully strong psychic herb, mugwort. Today I want to continue down this path by sharing the magickal properties of jasmine with you.

The magickal properties of jasmine are varied, ranging from love to happiness to moon magick. It’s often used to strengthen or find spiritual love. Jasmine also has some medicinal benefits, which range from easing menstrual cramps and symptoms of menopause to helping relieve anxiety to helping skin conditions among others.

History of Jasmine

Jasmine, or Jasminum Officinale, is a part of the Oleaceae family. There are around 200 native species which can be found in Eurasia and Oceania. There is only one species native to Europe. Botanists believe that Jasmin originated in Persia from where it crossed the Red Sea and made it’s way to Turkey and Greece. It’s believed that this may have happened as early as 1000BC.

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.

During the Sung Dynasty (960-1279AD) in China, jasmine was revered for its scent. In the 1400’s Roroyalty 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 1600s where it was enthusiastically embraced and adopted by other European countries such as Italy and France. 

Jasmine is prized as a perfume but is incredibly expensive due to how difficult it is to extract oils from. It must be picked at night to prevent the sun from dissipating the scent of the flowers. If it is bruised or damaged, this may lessen the oil yield and scent so extreme care must be taken when harvesting. It takes around 7.6 million flowers to produce 1kg of jasmine essential oil.
