Beccah Posted December 5, 2017 Share Posted December 5, 2017 Time Travel: 1400 A spicy rose scent with a festive holiday flair! Based upon historical recipes for relieving the effects of ill atmospheres - rose petals and bayberry blended with herbal accents of juniper, rosemary EO and pine with a touch of mint. An unexpectedly jolly scent for something of such dire origins! The Middle Ages were a dark time in human history, as the spread of the Black Plague decimated Europe and Eurasia quite thoroughly by the 1400s. The development of a sort of proto “hazmat” type of outfit included the iconic beaked mask forever associated with the grim legacy of the Plague Doctors, and besides potentially providing protection from person-to-person spread of the disease, the mask allowed the men to store a pomander of herbs within the beak, supposedly as protection from the miasma or "bad air". Smelling this fragrance was likely the best part of such a horrifying job! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ MAGICKAL MEANINGS OF INGREDIENTS: ROSE ~ Self-confidence, strong aphrodisiac properties, attracts affection & love, fertility, divination/clairvoyance.BAYBERRY ~ Brings money to the pockets and blessings to the home.
