WHAT IS "RAYHAN"
The word Rayhan or Reyhan is derived from the Arabic رائحة 'rih' or 'riha' meaning 'odour', 'fragrance' and was originally used for the plant 'myrtle', not basil. 'Holy Basil' is mentioned in the Quran as the 'scented herb' referring to the sweet smelling plants given to Mankind. Rayhani also represents an Arabic calligraphy script, developed in the 10th century. The Arabic name has been taken into other languages as well; in Spanish 'Arrayán' or 'Rehan Tulsi' in India. The Holy Basil is an important symbol within Hindi religion, and used extensively for its medicinal and healing properties. The leaves of Tulsi are a nerve tonic, anti stress agent, useful for strengthening the memory, relieving influenza, cold, heart, stomach and respiratory ailments, as well as eye, teeth and skin disorders.
WHAT DOES AMBERGRIS SMELL LIKE
Ambergris has an unusual odor which is difficult to explain to anyone who has never had the pleasure of its sensual aroma. Ambergris is often described as being musky and having a sweet earthy aroma unlike any other, or a mossy fragrance reminiscent of the damp forest floor. Depending on the quality of the ambergris there can be a great variation in the fragrance. Poor quality or fresh ambergris (which is black and sticky) is fairly offensive in fragrance. If you can imagine scented cow dung you will be on the right track. Many people expect ambergris to have a very strong or foul odor, but this is not the case. In general, lighter coloured pieces of ambergris have a subtle, pleasant smell. The base animal (manure) odor fades as the ambergris cures. However, the white and grey varieties, in particular, possess the subtle, sweet addictive aroma that beach combing dreams are made of.
