Ankh – Eternal Life (Frankincense, Myrrh & Patchouli)
The Ancient Egyptians loved beautiful fragrances. They associated them with the gods and recognized their positive effect on health and wellbeing.
Some of the most common scents used by the Egyptians were thyme, lavender, peppermint, cedar, rose, almond oil, and aloe. While providing a definitive use in life, these scents also had a purpose in death – namely, the process of Egyptian mummification. The famous method of embalming was developed around 2600 BCE.
