According to Robert Tisserand synthetic or inorganic substances do not contain any 'life force' they are not dynamic. Everything is made of chemicals, but only organic substances like essential oils have a structure which only mother nature can put together. They have a life force, an additional impulse which can only be found in living things.
The nose is the gateway to consciousness because the energy of life is taken in when we breathe. Through becoming aware of the way aroma's can affect us, our experience of reality undergo an alchemistic process of transformation. Aroma's can release emotions and awaken joy. They can bewitch and soothe, inspire and liberate. They can take us back into the past, lead us into the future or simply enchant us in the here and now.
Ancient Greece. Perfume was also integral to cleanliness, and used in elaborate bathing rituals by both men and women. Athletes used perfume after exercise for medicinal purposes in the form of balms and unguent oils. This is an early recognition of the possible therapeutic and healing properties that are reminiscent of attitudes towards aromatherapy and aromacology in modern times. Hospitality also required an abundance of perfume as guest`s feet were washed and anointed on being seated. Some wines were also perfumed according to works by Appicius, in the hope that they had medicinal properties.
The English word “pomander” comes from the French “pomme d’ambre”, meaning “apple of amber” and means a mixture of aromatic substances enclosed in a perforated bag or box and used to scent clothes and formerly carried as a guard against infection, also a clove studded orange or apple used for the same purpose. Or hollow fruit or box for holding pomander.
From the middle ages right up to the 1700s, pomanders were carried, held to the nose, suspended on chains or girdles or hung in rooms to ward off bad smells, freshen clothes and make the wearer smell nice. It was also believed that these sweet smelling herbs and spices could ward off infectious diseases and protect the wearer from illness. A pomander was a perfumed ball of some kind.
The word “pomander” could refer to the scented ball or the container which was usually carried a perforated metal case, usually gold or silver, which could be attached to belts, girdles, clothing and jewelry. Pomanders were a popular accessory in Tudor and Elizabethan times. Elizabeth I was said to carry a pomander scented with Damask Rose, Benzoin and Ambergris, and a few appear in the lists of New Year’s gifts to the Queen.
