Teas flavored with jasmine have long been popular. Picked and dried in jasmine gardens in China, white or green tea leaves are a common sight there these days. In order to maintain the tea’s flavor after drying, dried jasmine blooms were mixed in. The tea was consumed for a variety of occult purposes, including stress relief, inducing prophetic dreams, and more. Depending on the spell, it could bring love or happiness to the drinker.
Love can be attracted by using jasmine blossoms in spells, as a perfume or as a garlands to wear in one’s hair to attract a partner. The Full Moons between Beltane and Litha, which occur between the spring and summer months, are ideal for performing jasmine love magic. Jasmine blossoms under the Moon’s light, and the goddess was summoned to encourage the blossoming of love. You may also use the dried flowers as a charm to bring money and wealth by keeping them in your wallet or purse. Hedge riding and other forms of astral travel benefit greatly from the use of the flowers, which can be burned to help induce sleep and aid in journeying.
