Jasmine means "fragrant flower" in Arabic, and this sultry bud blooms in the night, releasing its musky floral aroma into the evening air. Jasmine has long been revered as an aphrodisiac, and the flowers are used in India to decorate a new bride on her wedding night. Jasmine's aroma is a musky and exotic smell that offers a nice break from the typically poignant and very sweet feminine aromas of other flowers such as Rose. Jasmine also stimulates the brain to release a neurotransmitter known as enkaphalin, which promotes a state of calm and well being. Use Jasmine to stimulate your own sense of pleasure and enjoyment, to clear your mind, and soothe nervous tension.
