Jasmine - The Flowers

The Magic of Flowers: A Guide to Their Metaphysical Uses & Properties - Tess Whitehurst 2013

The Flowers

Passionate, luxurious, and prosperous, jasmine seems to magically encapsulate all that is wonderful and right in the world. Indeed, her appearance and scent evoke easy breezy days, sensual pleasures, and everything associated with the good life.

Fresh jasmine is known for being more fragrant after dark, which is why she’s sometimes called the “Queen of the Night” in India.

Magical Uses


As you may have already learned, jasmine essential oil is expensive! (Well, naturally.) Jasmine, like a breathtakingly beautiful woman, is a queen, and her elegance requires a certain monetary respect. This costliness is a natural side effect of her luxurious and sumptuous vibration.

Of course, the magical benefits of her abundant nature can be gleaned with just a few of her fresh blossoms as well (a much thriftier option).


To help manifest a luxurious lifestyle and comfortable financial conditions, place a few fresh jasmine blossoms, a crisp dollar bill, and a white quartz crystal in a green satin charm bag. Tie it closed with purple velvet ribbon and keep it in your purse or near your checkbook.


We need joy like we need fresh air! If you come to the conclusion that joy has been conspicuously missing from your life, perform a spell or ritual incorporating jasmine, take jasmine essence, or surround yourself with the fragrance of jasmine. It will remind you of the best things in life and—by bringing you into your body and into the present moment—will help you to realize that you’re already blessed beyond your fondest dreams. Here are a couple ideas:


Brew a cup of tea using dried jasmine leaves and rose petals. Add four drops jasmine essence. Relax, take some deep breaths, and slowly drink.


Place two drops jasmine essence in a glass of pink champagne and drink slowly. To make a full batch to share, place six drops in a bottle.

Sensuality and Attractiveness

Nothing enhances your sexuality and sexual attractiveness like getting out of your head and into your body. And just a whiff jasmine essential oil, jasmine absolute, or (better yet) fresh jasmine can immediately excite your awareness with the pleasures associated with being in a physical body.

Similarly, incorporating jasmine into rituals and spells aimed at enhancing your sensuality, the sensual connection between you and a loved one, or your sexual attractiveness will likely yield excellent results.


Light one pink candle and one white or off-white candle and a stick of jasmine essence in the bathroom. By candlelight, draw a warm bath. Mix six drops jasmine essential oil or jasmine absolute into one cup sea salt and dissolve in the bath. Hold your hands over the bath water, close your eyes, and visualize very bright golden-white light coming up from the core of the earth, entering your feet, going up to your heart, down your arms, out through your palms, and into the bath water. Then envision the cool white light of the moon coming down from above, entering the crown of your head, going down to your heart, down your arms, out through your palms, and into the water. Say:

Great Goddess Isis, please infuse this water with divine magnetism and charm.

Tonight may I dazzle, and may all who gaze upon me be smitten.

Great Queen, I thank you!

Soak in the tub for at least thirty minutes as you feel yourself becoming infused with the magic you’ve conjured.

Sexual Healing

Similarly, jasmine can help heal sexual inhibition and sexual issues. For especially long-standing issues, you might try nightly anointing yourself with the natural fragrance of jasmine (essential oil or absolute) and/or taking two to four drops jasmine essence daily for at least one month. And baths that incorporate fresh jasmine, jasmine fragrance, or jasmine essence can similarly soothe and heal emotional wounds related to sexuality.


Like a cocktail or a glass of wine after a hectic day (only easier on the liver), the scent of jasmine can take the edge off and ease you into a warmer, gentler, and more pleasant sort of mood.

Similarly, consistently surrounding yourself with the scent of jasmine can be an excellent remedy for long-standing stress, irritability, or worry. This, of course, is also part of her aphrodisiacal effect, and—since soothing stress is so conducive to physical healing—it’s also perhaps why fresh jasmine has been traditionally kept in the bedrooms of bedridden patients in China.
