The word “Jasmine” comes from the old Persian “yasamin”, which means ‘a gift from god'. According to the Islamic believes, Jasmine is the flower that Allah gave to humanity. In Hinduism, Jasmine is the flower of Narayana and the symbol of pure love, faith, worship, and merit.

Jasmine was originated from Persia and brought to Egypt, Greek, and Europe. In Asia, Jasmine is cultivated in tropical area e.g. South China and India, Jasmine is blended with tea for aromatic and therapeutic properties. In India, as the symbol of purity, Jasmine is used to worship gods.
