             All about Jasmine Flowers

                       

"Twas midnight-through the lattice wreath'd with woodbine,many a perfume breath'd from plants that wake while other sleep, 

From timid jasmine buds, that keep their odour to themselves all day,  but when the sunshine dies away,  Let the delicious secret out to every breeze that roams about.          Thomas Moore ( 1779-1852)

Jasmine is known in India as the "Queen of the Night"  because of it's intoxicating perfume that is released at night.

 In China ,Jasmine is used a symbol of feminine sweetness and beauty. Jasmine also symbolize deep affection, happiness and elegance. This is why it is used in wedding toss.

Jasmine has been used for healing the female reproductive system. In Ayurvedic medicine jasmine is used to calm the nerves, sooth emotional problems, help with PMS and tension headaches. Because Jasmine has antispasmodic properties it can help relax the uterine cramps and pain during childbirth.      

In Chinese medicine Jasmine flowers are known to "cool" the blood and have a strong antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-tumor properties. Because they cool the blood they help with reducing a fever or cooling an overheated person (from the sun) .

Jasmine has astringent properties which aids in treating inflamed eyes and skin, and as a gargle to relieve sore throats and mouth ulcers.     

Jasmine is used in aromatherapy to calm the emotions, and as an aphrodisiac. It is a valuable remedy in cases of depression because is produces a feeling of confidence , optimism and euphoria.  It revitalizes and restores the  balance of energy.

Jasmine is used in teas, herbal bathes, skin creams, soaps and potpourri. It is also used as a decorative touch to special dishes.

We put jasmine in one of our soaps  Judy's Jasmine and in our Serenity bath tea.

Frequent Questions we get asked,

Who is the Christian Blind Mission Int Fund?

Answer:

This is a non profit Christian Mission that is over 90 years old and have been working to help eradicate blindness from our Earth. A percentage of our sales (not profits) go to the Vitamin A project. We have looked at many charities and CBMIF have been around a long time and will gladly open their "books" to those who ask. They do the missions they claim they do!

FACTS ABOUT VITAMIN A

  • Vitamin A deficiency is the leading cause of childhood blindness in the world. 
  • Each year, 350,000 children are permanently blinded by vitamin A deficiency. According to the World Health Organization, nearly half of these children will die in the next 24 months. 
  • One annual dose of vitamin A, costing just 60 cents including distribution is enough to prevent a child from becoming vitamin A deficient. 
  • Vitamin A is found naturally in dark green leafy vegetables, orange fruits and vegetables, meat, milk and eggs. So eat them every day. 
  • Babies get vitamin A from breast milk.

 When we were introduced to this charity ,it broke our hearts to think children  are still going blind over $.60 ..2 quarter and a dime.  We can't stand still for that. Our company has been so blessed that giving back to a cause like this is a joy.  We want our customers to know that when you wash with our soap or drink our tea you too are helping to save the sight of children.
