Jasmine season
When essential oil is turning deliciously naughty
When flowers are an Aphrodisiac botanic

Jasmine aphrodisiac
Here we are again….this is jasmine season in provence….
Just arrived from the pacific region in my little yard in Aix…..which is…by the way…invaded by jasmine…the beheading and arousing smell is in the air….just perfect for some inspiration….
Jasmine is largely used in perfumery….
It was already used centuries ago….in India, in North Africa….
This delicate flower has the reputation to be aphrodisiac….
I already wrote a post specifically about jasmine essential oil….
But today I wanted to share some unusual ways to use jasmine….
fresh….infused Jasmine….
If you want to surprise with an unusual cocktail….
Have you ever thought about infused fresh Jasmine flowers….
This is simply an amazing way to perfume your drinking water….

Water infused with jasmine

How to prepare this aphrodisiac and refreshing drink?
Take some mineral water of your choice ( room temperature)
Pick fresh flowers from your yard. if you don’t have a yard….or Jasmine….dont panic….you can buy dried flowers in an organic or herbalist store.
Let the flowers infuse for a couple of hours then place in the fridge or add ice cubes….
Serve chilled…
It will offer you a very subtile taste, will invade your taste buds as well as your olfaction….
If you prepare it with dried flowers, filter before serving….
To keep an exotic….botanic look, pick up some rose petal…lay it on your infused water
And I promise….Your alcohol free refreshing drink will transform you in a star….of flower cocktail!!!

Aphrodisiac Jasmine drink

I like the cool infused version for summer….but you can also drink it hot, infused…the taste will be stronger…

And last option…but not least….for a champagne party….why not serving your champagne in a glass of fresh jasmine flowers…
This will replace the eternal strawberry….and surprise your sweetheart….for a very sweet birthday party….a bubbling Valentine’s Day….or even better….to celebrate….your everyday beautiful love….

Jasmine aphrodisiac champagne
Mmm mmmm

Whatever your choice is….

be naturally naughty today
Cheers….
