Cultivation of Harsingar:

Harsinger usually grows in tropical regions of the world. Though this plant usually blooms at night, it does require plenty of sunlight and it cannot survive in a frosty or cold area. It grows best in sandy sol, moist and well drained soil. It cannot grow in highly saline soil. It is usually found in some regions of South Asia and Asia.



Night blooming jasmine loves the heat, so make sure you can provide for it! If you decide to plant indoors, make sure that the temperature is nice and warm, at least 70F! If you do decide to plant outdoors, that is also fine! Once frost hits, the night blooming jasmine will freeze, but will take up again in the spring5.



Choose a light, loose sandy soil in which to grow night blooming jasmine. If you’re growing from seed, you can start off with a small, shallow pot, and transplant once the plant has reached 4-6 inches in height. If you grow night blooming jasmine from a small plant (like from a nursery), plant it in a bigger pot or straight into your garden5.



The night blooming jasmine loves the sun, so place your plant or pot in a sunny spot! If you’re growing indoors, a windowsill is preferred.



Water your night blooming jasmine plant regularly, but also make sure not to over-water it either! Simply touch the soil around the plant and, if it feels dry, go ahead and give it some water6


Because the night blooming jasmine is pretty self-sufficient and doesn’t require much care, you shouldn’t need a fertilizer at all. If you do choose to fertilize, do so just once in the spring using a regular flower fertilizer6.



Mostly, its trees are found in forests and gardens. Its flowers are beautiful and attractive. Its sticks are saffron. Ground sticks of night jasmine are used in cloths to make yellow. Its fruits are small and flats. Its leaves are rough like adhul6.



It is cool and dry in nature, but some night jasmine is hot in nature.


Precaution: It’s harmful in cough.


Dose: It should be used in 3 grams quantity.



The leaves and seeds contain iridoid glycosides. The other constituents reported from the leaves are mannitol, beta-amyrin, beta-sitosterol, hentriacontane, benzoic acid, astragalin, nicotiflorin, oleanolic acid, nyctanthic acid friedelin and lupeol. The seeds containa polysaccharide glucomannan7.



Phenylephrine chloride (PE), Nω-nitro-L-arginine (L-NA), atropine sulfate, acetylcholine chloride (Ach), ruin hydrate, oleuropein, kaempferol disaccharides, and quercetin were purchased from Sigma-Aldrich Chemical, USA. All other chemicals used were of analytical grade7.


The History and Benefits of Jasmine:

Jasmine’ is a common name for plants classified in the genus Jasminium. There are over two hundred individual species of jasmine, which come from Asia, Europe, and Africa. The precise original location of jasmine is heavily disputed8.


Some botanists pinpoint as originating from India in the northern parts of the Himalayan valleys. Others place it as far away as Egypt or ancient Persia. The name itself, ‘jasmine’, comes from a Persian word meaning ‘fragrant flower’.

Night jasmine is quite efficient in treating the Malaria fever. Also, it treats nausea, diarrhea and rising body temperature caused due to bile maladies. The leaf of this flower is helpful in reducing the fever of malaria, strains of Plasmodium falciparum. All you have to do is, mix 1 ml of olive oil and 2 drops of arising oil in a bowl. If possible soak this herb to the oil for 1 hour. Now rub the oil on your feet9.


Reduces Pain and Inflammation:

Parijat makes amazing essential oils which are great to reduce the pain, injury and the inflammation. Not only this, it reduces the pain of arthritis, stress, muscle tension, rheumatism and sore muscles too. So, it is easy to understand how beneficial pariah is in treating pain. Hence, what you have to do is, mix the coconut oil and 5-6 drops of parijat essential oil in a bowl. Then, warm up the solution and massage on your swelled area. This will help a lot9.


CNS depressant activity:

 It was reported that the leaves, flowers, seeds and barks (600 mg/kg) of N. arbortristis exhibited significant and dosedependent prolongation of onset and duration of sleep and found to cause decrease in dopamine and increase serotonin level from which it can be resolved that the CNS depressant activity of the ethanol extracts of seeds, leaves and flowers may be due to the decrease in dopamine and increase in serotonin level


Sedative Activity:

Sedative potential of a hot infusion of the flowers was examined in rats. In this test, male rats exhibited a dosedependent conscious sedative activity while female rats remained unaffected. At these doses, muscle strength and coordi Nyctanthes arbortristision were not affected nor was blood glucose levels affected even at the highest dose. However, glucose absorption from the small intestine was significantly reduced. The sedation was attributed, in part, to the antioxidant and membrane stabilizing activity of the extract


Hepato-protective activity:

The aqueous extracts of the leaves and seeds of N. arbortristis were found to have anti-hepatotoxic activity against carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) induced hepatotoxicity [47, 48]. Further, it was established that the alcoholic and aqueous extracts showed significant hepatoprotective activity by reducing the levels of SGPT (serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase), SGOT (serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase) and serum bilirubin (total and direct). The results were supported by histopathological studies of liver samples which showed regeneration of hepatocytes by the extracts


Anti-Parasitic activity:

A crude 50% ethanolic extract of leaves have been reported to exhibit trypanocidal activity at 1000 g/mL concentration. In vivo studies revealed that the extract exerted antitrypanosomal effects at doses of 300 and 1000 mg/Kg, significantly prolonged the survival period of Trypanosomaevansi infected mice. However, it is also reported that as soon as the treatment with the extract is discontinued, the parasitaemia increases and results in death of the experimental animals. N. arbortristis extract has also exhibited potential anti-leishmanial activity in Leishmania donovani infected hamsters. The 50% ethanolic extracts of the seeds, leaves, roots, flowers and stem of N. Arbortristis have been found to clear Entamoeba histolytica infections in rat caecum. However, the extracts were not active in vitro.

In addition night blooming jasmine is also used as an ornamental plant due to its showy and fragrant white flowers. The leaves of C. nocturnum are used in Chinese folk medicine for the treatment of burns and swellings, being applied externally. Further research work and clinical trials need to be done to establish the above mentioned effects in human beings.


Facts about the Night jasmine:

·       Cestrum nocturnum can be grown in cooler climates as a house or conservatory plant.

·       I'm not saying you will never need to use air fresheners again, but you certainly won't need them when this plant is in flower. However, as gorgeous as its scent may be, you may soon find it to be overpowering in such close quarters.

·       They can reach 10-12 feet in height and have a spread of 6 feet in ideal growing conditions. Prune back into shape after flowering.

·       Night-blooming jasmines flower up to four times per year, after which, they produce white berries full of seeds.

·       If grown as a houseplant, chances are that the flowers will never pollinate, unless you do it by hand with an artist's brush or similar tool. Cestrum nocturnum is self-pollinating and does not need another plant for cross-pollination. Common pollinators include bats and moths.
