Known as “The Queen of the Flowers” in central and east Asia, the jasmine flower is well renowned as a fashion item. Yet, the herb has several other uses; the fragrant plant has been used in perfumes, oils and candles and also boasts health benefits. Many parts of Asia use this plant as a natural cure for anxiety, stress and insomnia.
Renowned in tea form, as well as in the forms mentioned above, the Jasmine flower contains antioxidant properties. These properties help to promote nutrient absorption and promote healthy bowel function alongside aiding the growth of healthy gut bacteria. The herb has also been known to aid indigestion, stomach cramps and sooth internal inflammation.
Jasmine has also been credited with bolstering gastrointestinal health. It has been known to help in the treatment of nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea; they do this by inhibiting the growth of the bacteria.
Some studies have revealed how the aromatic Jasmine flower can help to elevate one’s mood – through oil inhalation; the study showed that user’s feelings were heightened. They reported feeling more positive and energetic.
In aromatherapeutic massages, it was found that the flower increased breathing rate, blood oxygen saturation and blood pressure.
Yet, conversely, the plant has also been associated with helping to regulate the nervous system in times of higher stress or tension. The flower has shown its adaptogenic properties in the form of being able to promote peaceful sleep, help to induce sleep in insomniacs and regulate erratic or irregular sleep patterns.
For as long as the Jasmine flower has been used as a herbal remedy, it has been used as a natural aphrodisiac. Its capabilities around lifting the mood while simultaneously relaxing the body have a positive impact when it comes to overcoming barriers that may be more mind-bound than physically-bound.
The herb has been known to have healing properties when it comes to female reproductive health. The flower can improve the symptoms of:
PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome)
painful periods by acting as an “emmenagogue” (a substance that stimulates or increases menstrual flow).
