Blogging From A to Z Challenge ~ "J"



Jasmine is
 any of the more than two hundred species of shrubs and vines comprising the plant genus Jasminum of the olive family (Oleaceae). The term also refers to the perfume made from these plants.
Jasmine is native to tropical and warm temperate regions of the Old World, chiefly Asia, with some species native to all continents except Antarctica and North America. It is widely grown throughout the tropics as an ornamental plant for its strongly scented flowers. Jasmine flowers are used in decorations and in producing jasmine tea, and the flagrant flowers are used in aromatherapy.
In Thailand, jasmine flowers are used as a symbol of the mother, and in Indonesia the flower symbolizes purity, eternal life, nobility, and the beauty of a girl. It is the most important flower in wedding ceremonies for ethnic Indonesians, especially on the island of Java. Jasminum molle, commonly known as Indian Jui, is used as sacred offerings during Hindu religious ceremonies.
Some flagrant-flowered species of plants of other genera also use the common name of jasmine, including confederate or star jasmine (Trachelospermum), cape jasmine (Gardenia jasminoides), and night-blooming jasmine (Cestrum nocturnum). Carolina jasmine (Gelsemium sempervirens), also known as false jasmine or yellow jasmine, contains toxic alkaloid components which can be lethal in small doses.

Jasmine is one of my favorite scents.
I love the flower that blooms on the shrubs and trees.
At my ex-mother-in-laws home there use to be a jasmine bush in the front yard going up the walk way to the front door. I loved the smell of it.
It is also a very beautiful bush or tree.

Do you like Jasmine?

I enjoy the fragrance of Jasmine in the air on a hot, humid night. I also like the smell of the perfume on the right women. Some of the latter would not do the jasmine scent any justice. Just sayin'. lol

Jasmine is one of my favourite plants, I have two varieties at the moment, one is evergreen and the other dies down in the winter. They grow so quickly and I have it over the front of the house, so during the summer evenings you get a beautiful waft as you pass the house. Blessings, Amanda
