The jasmine plant was brought to China from Persia sometime in the third century AD. But jasmine tea did not become popular in China until the Song Dynasty (960-1270 AD). Traditional Chinese medicine recommends it to decrease nervous tension, to increase circulation, and to break down saturated fat.
Today, jasmine is known in alternative health care as an effective anti-depressant--post-natal depression, and menopause problems. Along with raspberry leaf, it has been used to help childbirth and milk production.
It can help release muscle and joint pain, including chronic back pain.
