Beccah Posted December 5, 2017 Share Posted December 5, 2017 Time Travel: 1200 BC A recreation of an ancient perfume...journey to the lush Nile Valley where flowers bloom under the life-giving Eye of Ra...lovely stargazer lily and water lily combined with bright lemongrass and warm cardamom in a classic Egyptian perfumery base of storax, sandalwood and honey.It is amazing to consider that the art of perfumery has existed for thousands of years. Upon the walls of the Temple of Edfu in Upper Egypt are recipes for perfumes and ointments, thus some of the earliest records of its’ creation and use. Though methods and tastes have changed with the passage of millennia, those cultures developing this artform which has both aesthetic and utilitarian aspects created an enduring foundation in that many fragrances brewed in bygone eras may still be enjoyed in the present day. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ MAGICKAL MEANINGS OF INGREDIENTS: WATER LILY ~ Purity of heart.LILY ~ Purity, modesty.Wards away evil, protects, and breaks enchantments.
