Goddess: There’s a kind ‘Goddess Candy’ that claims to give off a pleasant fragrance if you eat it, is there such a thing in Chinese Medicine?
“The Compendium of Materia Medica” states that Jasmine Flower is considered a beauty product and has healing effects of improving hair quality and skin fragrance, and moisturizing dry skin. Jasmine flower has a pleasant aroma, helps to regulate qi and blood flow. Consuming lots of Jasmine Flower can indeed cause your skin to give off a floral aroma. However, it is hard to quantify how much a person have to eat to achieve a ‘goddess-like’ aroma, so it is then also difficult to gauge how effective such ‘Goddess Candy’ can be. Chinese Medicine states that people with damp heat body types are prone to stronger body odor. To relieve that, it would help to eat foods that can clear heat and remove dampness, such as corn silk, winter melon and mung beans. You can start by being a natural Goddess by being odor free!
