The Scent of Doves

02022-12-17 | Quotes | 2 comments

Ancient Greeks would drench the feathers of doves in perfume and then set them free inside their house. With every beat of their wings they would scent the room.

    Nice! What scent I wonder? And what essential oils did they use that wouldn’t hurt the delicate doves?
    It’s also interesting to use doves, which simplified in Native American Medicine symbolize Love, Beauty, and Protection….hmmm so maybe they were spreading loving scent to increase beauty and protection? I really wonder the scent they used…smell is one of our most powerful intuitive senses…
