Myrrh is a natural resin extracted from the tree Commiphora myrrha across the Middle East and parts of Africa. Like frankincense, it is an antimicrobial. It is also widely used as a palliative for bruises, arthritis, sprains, and toothaches. The ancient Egyptians used Myrrh as incense for their midday temple ritual, as well as medicinally.
Cinnamon is one of nature’s strongest antimicrobials, used extensively in dressings, and also a treatment for gum ulcers. In daily life, tishepes was burned and its oil was utilized to permeate clothing and bedding with the scent of an aphrodisiac. It is utilized in many incense and oil perfumes and infused into soothing massage emollients for the body and feet.
Mendesian originated in Mendes; the Greek name of the Ancient Egyptian city of Djadut, also known in Ancient Egypt as Par Ba’anabdjadut (The Domain of the Ram Lord of Djadut) and Inapat, is known today as Tell El-Ruba. This Nile Delta city became the capital of Ancient Egypt’s Late Period. Mendesian perfume was so popular for thousands of years, that it became known simply as ‘The Egyptian’ by Roman times.
Ba’anabdjadut was the god of Mendes, who was consulted by the Divine Tribunal in the Judgment of Horus and Seth. Ptah, the creator god of Memphis, took the form of Ba’anabdjadut in his form of virility in the conception of Ramesses II. It can be worn for creativity, virility, and a favorable court verdict.
