Jasmine is known as the “King of flowers”. It was imported from Persia to Europe in the 17th century. The name Jasmine is derived from the Persian “yasmin”. The Chinese, Arabians and Indians used Jasmine medicinally as an aphrodisiac & for ceremonial purposes. In Turkey the wood is used for making rope stems. Jasmine is used in Indonesia as a popular garnish. It has been said that no other oil is as capable of changing our mood so intensely. Jasmine is the oil of romance and was revered as such in Hindu and Muslim traditions.
