  1. Yes, jasmine is the natural herb that can be used for getting rid of various diseases.  Natural herbs do not cause any side-effects. So it’s better to use them for preventing diseases. I have used home remedies for dry skin like aloe vera, olive oil. All are effective. I have searched from homeremediesfinderthat stream with any natural herb is the solution for both dry skin and whiteheads.  Either we can use  jasmine herb in the stream for dry skin or not?
