Though the foundation is not cer-
tain why these scents do the job, it
may have something to do with the
fact that they are pleasant smells said
to be relaxing and comforting.
• In the time of the Mishnah and
the Talmud, Jews were known to
have made many perfumes, both
from indigenous plants and those,
such as jasmine, which originated in
Rabbinic literature also cites the
use of musk in fragrance making.
If you would like to try the ancient
manner of making perfumes, you will
need to boil your aromatic plant in
oil, or try boiling the plant's roots in
water, then placing the roots in oil to
absorb the smell.
• A popular flower on Shabbat
tables in ancient times was the lily,
said to exist "only for its fragrance."
• Ancient Israelites faced quite a
challenge when wandering in the
desert: how to stay fresh and clean.
Since taking a shower wasn't really in
the sands, women came up with the
idea of wearing a small bag,
with myrrh, around their necks to
help mask unpleasant odors.
• Esther was not the only woman
seeking the love of King Ahaseurus.
Before meeting the king, Esther,
along with all the other candidates,
were treated to "six months with ail
of myrrh and six months with sweet
odors and with other ointments of
the women," according to Megillat
HOW TO MAKE PERFUME
You and your older children easily
can make your own perfumes,
though it may take a number of tries
to get the scent just right. Consider
making a fragrance using only herbs
and aromas mentioned in the
Here are some to try: Rosemary,
ginger, pine, basil, black pepper,
mint, cinnamon, anise, thyme, laven-
der, rose, apple, cedar, cucumber,
orchid, peach, pear.
Take a small glass bottle and fill
about halfway with vodka. Add
essential oils, then mix. Add a bit
more alcohol, leaving enough room
to finish off with distilled water.
(There is no set amount on this final
water-and-vodka mix; you will have
to try until you achieve a strength of
fragrance right for vou.)
Shake it gently, then set aside in a
dark place 'for at least four weeks.
Last, strain through a coffee filter. [11
