Jasmine is a plant. The flower is used to make medicine.

Jasmine has been used for liver disease (hepatitis), liver pain due to cirrhosis, and abdominal pain due to severe diarrhea (dysentery). It is also used to cause relaxation (as a sedative), to heighten sexual desire (as an aphrodisiac), and in cancer treatment.

In foods, jasmine is used to flavor beverages, frozen dairy desserts, candy, baked goods, gelatins, and puddings.

In manufacturing, jasmine is used to add fragrance to creams, lotions, and perfumes.

How does it work?

There isn't enough information to know how jasmine might work.

Uses & Effectiveness

Insufficient Evidence to Rate Effectiveness for...

  • Mental alertness. There is conflicting evidence about the effects of jasmine on mental alertness. Some early research suggests that inhaling fragrance from a small amount of jasmine absolute ether improves mental alertness. However, inhaling a larger amount of fragrance from jasmine absolute ether seems to have a relaxing effect. Other research suggests that jasmine odor does not affect concentration.
  • Liver problems such as hepatitis and cirrhosis.
  • Stomach pain due to severe diarrhea (dysentery).
  • Increasing sexual desire (as an aphrodisiac).
  • Cancer treatment.
  • To cause relaxation (as a sedative).
  • Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of jasmine for these uses.

Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database rates effectiveness based on scientific evidence according to the following scale: Effective, Likely Effective, Possibly Effective, Possibly Ineffective, Likely Ineffective, and Insufficient Evidence to Rate (detailed description of each of the ratings).

Side Effects

Jasmine is LIKELY SAFE for most people in food amounts. It is not known if jasmine is safe when used as medicine. Jasmine may cause allergic reactions.

Special Precautions & Warnings

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking jasmine in medicinal amounts if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Stick to food amounts.


The appropriate dose of jasmine depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for jasmine. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
