Let’s learn more about jasmine’s magical properties, magickal uses, and history.
Jasmine’s Magickal Origins
Since ancient times jasmine was known to the Greeks and Romans who used it during banquets.
While in Egypt ancient traces have been found on the mummy of a pharaoh in the necropolis of Deir-el-Bahri.
The jasmine, a native plant of the Malabar in the East Indies, was imported into Europe by Spanish navigators in an unspecified period between 1524 and 1528.
An Italian legend:
Jasmine has a long history in Italy as it seems that it existed even before that time, and this is demonstrated by a figure of these well-designed and colorful flowers found in the Code by the Rinio “Liber de Simplicibus” written in 1415.
The first to have some specimens of it was Cosimo I de’ Medici, known as the “Great Devil”.
He became so fascinated by this flower, that if he wanted to be the only possessor of it, he strictly forbade his gardeners to give them even a single plant and reproduce it in many specimens.
This order was devotedly respected for many years.
In the end, a young gardener wanted to present a gift to his fiancée on her birthday, so he gave her a sprig of jasmine.
The girl liked it very much and was sorry that such a beautiful flower would die so soon, so she put it in the ground to keep it alive.
Jasmine remained green throughout the year, and in the following spring, it blossomed. He made a vast fortune with selling these flowers.
That’s how this gardener became the father, of a large part of the jasmines we own!
In memory of this event, some Italian girls used to wear a bouquet of jasmine on their wedding day.
It is still said that “a girl worthy of wearing that bouquet is rich enough to make her husband’s fortune.”

How it’s done
First, take a container and, after filling it with hot water, add jasmine until you begin to feel a strong and intense flower fragrance.
Inhale this essence as much as possible and in the meantime, fix your reflection in the mirror.
Doing this, say the name of the person you want to bind to you six times adding the following words:
“(name of the beloved) stay with me, stay with the only one who loves you.”
This spell will strengthen the feeling between you and the person in your heart.
Perform the jasmine love spell whenever you feel your relationship is weak or on the rocks.
