Surprisingly, Jasmine (Jasminum) is actually a genus of shrubs and vines belonging to the olive family (Oleaceae). It contains nearly 200 species native to both temperate and tropical regions around the world, particularly in Europe, the Middle-east, Asia, and Australia. The Jasminum sambac variety of the Jasmine plant is the most commonly used flower to scent Green Tea and is likewise used to make ‘standalone’ Herbal Tea.
Jasminum sambac is also the national flower of Hawaii, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Furthermore, the Syrian city of Damascus is nicknamed the ‘City of Jasmine’, with gardens and verandas on every street adorned with jasmine flowers. Many jasmine shrubs reach heights of 10-15 feet, growing approximately 12-24 inches per year. Yet the most visually arresting quality of the Jasmine Flower is how it blooms at night, often beginning between six and eight in the evening. This releases an unmistakably fragrant scent into the air, only for the flowers to close by morning.
The Jasmine flower has often been closely associated with sensuality, opulence, luxury and all things sacred in many cultures. In the ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda, jasmine flowers are used for their tranquilising and sedative effects, and can also be used externally to treat skin blemishes. It’s likewise said to balance both the ‘Kapha’ and ‘Pitta’ Doshas in the body, according to Ayurvedic Medicine, a form of holistic healing.
