Jasmine Health Benefits & Information
|Jasmine Blossoms. Image Courtesy
Jasmine is a flower that has many uses indeed. Besides being a tasty
and delightful addition to any tea, the oil in jasmine leaves
is frequently used in perfumes and incense due to its strong and generally
very pleasing aromatic properties.
There are over 200 species of jasmine. Due to this wide variety,
jasmine of one kind or another can be grown in a multitude of climates.
This has made jasmine an ideal plant for flower gardens, wedding parties
and the list goes on.
The health benefits of jasmine itself are a bit mixed and not fully
understood. Jasmine does have antioxidants in it, but how much remains
once used in a tea is not fully known. For pure antioxidant value, it
is best to find a green tea that has jasmine flowers infused in it...this
way you get the flavor of jasmine and the antioxidants of a green tea.
Additionally, jasmine is popular in aromatheraphy. In particular, the
sweet, flowery smell of jasmine is widely known to be a stress reliever.
And I personally can attest to that, actually...as I find simply drinking
a tea with jasmine in it makes me feel more relaxed. Whether there is
any actual health benefits beyond immediate relaxation I can't say...but
for quick relaxation jasmine tea does indeed work quite nicely, at least
