History and Folklore: Jasmine flowers exude an exotic, sensuous scent that has long been one of the most sought after fragrances among perfumers around the world. Thus, most flowers are collected for essential oil production, but in Asia the fresh and dried flowers are also commonly available and play a great role as religious offerings. in India, the flowers of J. sambac are regarded as sacred, symbolizing innocence and purity of mind. Jasmine flower garlands adorn the temples and holy effigies or are offered to the Gods. At religious festivals the Gods themselves are thought to be present within the flowers. Jasmine flowers are never amiss at wedding ceremonies and women like to entwine a string of flowers with their hair, thus engulfing themselves with this beautiful, most sensual of natural perfumes. The fragrant Jasmine tea is particularly popular in China.
Magickal Uses: Uses include snakebite and divination; good for charging quartz crystals. Use in sachets and spells to draw spiritual love and attract a soul mate. Carry or burn the flowers to draw wealth and money. Helps to promote new, innovative ideas. Symbolic of the moon and of the mysteries of the night. Jasmine essential oil is useful for sexuality, DON’T use synthetics! They will attract a spiritual (as opposed to a physical)love.

Jasmine will also cause prophetic dreams if burned in the bedroom, and the flowers are smelled to induce sleep.

Lighting on the last smelly candle around your bathtub and
throwing a few relaxing salts into the water, you couldn’t help but sigh
contently as you stepped into the warm water.
After such a shitty day at work, all you wanted from a
Friday night was a warm bath, a glass of wine and some good music to take you
out of the edge again.
Sometimes you’d even think of yourself as an old soul –
while all your girlfriends were out partying and drinking colorful drinks, you
were lying in a bathtub, almost falling asleep with the comforting scent of
lavender filling the room when not drinking some expensive wine you bought
especially for occasions like this.
Even so, you didn’t bother much when they sending you
several texts, your phone crazily ringing as the notifications filled your
Chuckling quietly at their rowdiness, you quickly swiped off
your phone and started typing out a quick reply.
If you could,
you’d sing to the high heavens about how happy you were that the work week was
finally over. Friday’s didn’t seem to come quick enough these days. Of course,
you knew that having a job and a flat to even pay bills for were privileges.
But adulting was hard man. Sometimes,
you caught yourself longing for the days of being a teen with no obligations
again. Then you remembered how awful it was having to rely on your parents for
everything, making you appreciate where you were in life. It was a painful
When you got
home, you immediately made your way to the bathroom to draw a warm bath. You
floated through your place as the water filled the tub, stripping off your
clothes as you did so. It was a mess in here, but you’d worry about cleaning later.
Right now, all you needed was to relax. You went back to the bathroom,
connecting your phone to the wireless speaker to play some soft music. Before
you slid into the tub, you put one of your favorite flower bath bombs in.

Fandom Friday!! This week dear bloggers we have a treat reminiscent of, “Welcome to Night Vale”…….Or in our case, “Welcome to Lush Vale”….
For this elegant blending of golden sunshine straight from Desert Bluffs, you will need a Strex Corp approved Sunnyside bubble bar. The beautiful lustre makes an iridescent glittery effect like the sands in a desert storm. (Which is why I call it, ‘Midnight Sands’)

The Government agent assigned to you from the Sheriffs Secret Police Department and the Old Woman who secretly lives in your home will adore this Lush cult classic. Whether you’re sharing the bath with your perfect scientist or having some time to plan your next radio broadcast pondering over the many mysteries of life, this bathing beauty is so perfect, you will fall in love instantly!
