Jasmine

Jasmine has been cultivated for centuries for its delicate white flowers and heady floral scent. It is regarded as one of the most mystical of all flowers. Jasmine hails from the Middle and Far East, where it once graced palace gardens and inspired poets. The name comes from the Persian “Yasmin,” meaning fragrance. In the language of flowers, Jasmine symbolizes purity and grace. The flowers bloom in the evening, leading to colorful nicknames for Jasmine such as “Queen of the Night,” and “Moonlight on the Grove.”

Jasmine has the special honor of being chosen for sensual and spiritual workings alike. Its two main uses are love spells and divination.

An undisputed Lunar herb, Jasmine is an appropriate choice for all manner of moon magick: Prophecy, dreaming, attraction, and so on. Jasmine especially corresponds to the Waxing Moon. Like the Maiden, its beauty is intoxicating and its bloom is brief. It is used in love-drawing magick, and is said to attract spiritually pure love (as opposed to spicy flings).

Jasmine may be burned, carried, scattered, or added to dream pillows and baths. It makes a perfect anointing oil for receptive/feminine tools like scrying mirrors and chalices. Respect the mystery of this ancient flower, and it will reward you with clear vision and deep love.

Put the blossoms inside a dream pillow to induce prophetic dreams.

Add dried Jasmine to Lunar incenses, mojo bags and spell bottles.

Crystals may be cleansed and charged by placing them in a bowl of Jasmine. Alternatively, pass them through the smoke from Jasmine incenses.

A Jasmine flower, carried in a locket or sachet, is said to inspire confidence and inner beauty.

Dab a little bit of Jasmine oil on your third eye before meditation or psychic readings.

A ritual “marriage” of Jasmine and Holly will attract a new passionate love affair, or cement an old one.
