The people call Jasmine the "Night Queen" because of the fact that this fragrant flower blooms in the evening, and is only collected at night. It is said that once upon a time there lived a beautiful Princess Jasmine, who fell in love with the Sun God. But he rejected the beauty because she was an earthly woman. Unable to accept the refusal, Jasmine desperately jumped from a high rock. After the fall, her body turned into a fragrant bush that bloomed only at night, so as not to disturb the Sun God.
Jasmine flowers have long been used to flavor tea – fragrant white flowers are found in various blends. Jasmine tea is not only tasty, but also very healthy. Its essential oils have a beneficial effect on the emotional state and normalize the nervous system. Additionally, Jasmine essential oil is considered to be one of the most expensive among the flower oils. Its high price is due to the laborious production process – one ton of petals provides only a kilogram of oil.
