Top 10 Ways To Recycle Leftover Perfume (Reblog)

Odd fact about perfume: Did you know the famous philosopher Socrates did not approve of perfumes? But do you know why? He thought the smells blurred the lines between slaves and freedmen.

"History: Perfume was first used by the Egyptians as part of their religious rituals. ... Perfumed oils were applied to the skin for either cosmetic or medicinal purposes." (Source)

"During the reign of the Egyptian pharaoh Khufu, builder of the Great Pyramid (c. 2700 bc), papyrus manuscripts recorded the use of fragrant herbs, choice oils, perfumes, and temple incense, and told of healing salves made of fragrant resins. Throughout the African continent, people coated their skin with fragrant oils to protect themselves from the hot, dry sun."  (Source)

There are many ways to recycle leftover perfume.   For example, you can use perfume to make artificial flowers. Learn more.

Genesis 3:19

The idea of coming full circle and returning whence we came is captured perfectly by this beautiful new burial method developed in Italy.
