What is Jasmine?

Jasmine is a common name for the Jasminum genus, which belongs to the Oleaceae family. There are around 200 species of jasmine, which include a variety of shrubs and vines. They are native to tropical and subtropical regions, particularly in Asia, Africa, and the Pacific Islands.

Different cultures and traditions may employ various species of jasmine based on their availability, fragrance, or specific symbolic meanings.

But the most common species of jasmine used in magick is:

Jasminum officinale (Common Jasmine): Often associated with love, romance, and spiritual connection, this species is widely used in various magical or spiritual practices.

Another species of jasmine commonly used in magick is:

Jasminum sambac (Arabian Jasmine): Another popular choice, particularly in some Asian traditions, where it may be used in religious ceremonies and offerings.

The cost of jasmine can vary widely depending on several factors, such as the type of product (e.g., fresh flowers, essential oil, tea), the species of jasmine, the quality, the place of purchase, and the region where it’s grown and sold.

Pure jasmine essential oil typically costs several hundred dollars per ounce.  Jasmine is one of the most adulterated essential oils on the market.  If you are seeing a 3 oz. $15 bottle of jasmine essential oil, it is not pure, despite the claims. 

What is The History Of Jasmine’s Use In Magick?

The use of jasmine in magick and spirituality has a long and varied history, deeply rooted in different cultures and traditions around the world. 

Jasmine has long been used in Ancient Egypt and China, throughout the Islamic culture, across South Asia including the Hindu culture, the Middle Ages and Renaissance, modern Wicca and Neopaganism, and modern aromatherapy.

 Jasmine can go by many different names depending on the species, culture, or language.  Here are a few examples: 

  • Common Jasmine: Refers to Jasminum officinale, often considered the “true” jasmine.

The most important aspects of any magick are your intent and your emotions.

Through your desire, you will drive your power into your magic.

Spell examples we give follow sound magickal practices.  It is important that whatever spell you use or create, HARM NO ONE.

There are many resources I have used to learn about magick and to compile these articles.

I particularly like the following two books about herbal magic:

  1. Plant Magic for the Beginner Witch: An Herbalist’s Guide to Heal, Protect, and Manifest
  2. Blackthorn’s Botanical Magic

Both books discuss jasmine.  The first book includes some spells utilizing jasmine. 

The second book should be in every library of anyone interested in plant magick.  This book talks in detail about the many plants you may use in your magickal journey, including jasmine.

With that out of the way, let us look at how you can use jasmine in your everyday magick.
