Some history: one of the main ingredients is my own homegrown Rue. Healers hold this most sacred as it is said to fix or hold a spirit to the earth. It has been used since recorded times by many different cultures. The term plague came from the Latin Plaga meaning to blow or strike. Some thought diseases were caused by Pest Jungfrau, a beautiful maiden who flew over the countryside with a blue flame. During these times people performed odd and cruel rituals such as frenetic dancing, burying young children as sacrifice or virgins were stripped nude and forced to drag a plow counter clockwise.
Perfumes, fragrant bath oils and body lotions have long been the privilege of the rich or famous, which used them in vast quantities.
