Traditional Use and Health Benefits
Jasmine is believed to have originated in the Himalayas of western China, a country where this delicate, fragrant flower is known as the “Queen of the Flowers”. It is mainly the flowers that have been used for time immemorial for their healing and uplifting properties – Jasmine essential oil has been used in many parts of Asia as a natural remedy for depression, anxiety, stress and insomnia for thousands of years.
The delicate aromatic tea made from Jasmine flowers became hugely popular in the Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644 AD), with the most famous and traditionally scented Jasmine tea coming out of the Fujian region. The tea was drunk not only for its wonderful taste, but also for the many benefits to overall health and wellbeing it imparted.
