Jasmine sedates the nervous system, relieves menstural cramps and head aches and is also known to assist in prostate problems. It soothes insomniacs bringing them much needed sleep, relieves those who are depressed, treats skin problems (externally), and improves one's overall moods (aromatherapy). It is used in oils, perfumes, skin care products and teas. The most prized jasmine comes from France, Italy and Egypt.
Note: One should not pick their own flowers and crush leaves or flowers and ingest as some jasmine is toxic. It needs to be especially identified and prepared for consumption.
