Kyphi

Kyphi was an Egyptian temple incense formula so important that its formula was engraved onto temple walls. Various formulas existed. Kyphi is an oil and fat-free formula, based on wine and raisins with added fragrant botanicals. It was used in sacred ritual but also to relieve insomnia and provide deep sleep.



Ingredients might include:
  • Cardamom pods
  • Cinnamon
  • Coriander seeds
  • Frankincense
  • Golden raisins
  • Honey
  • Juniper berries
  • mastic resin
  • Myrrh
  • Red wine
  • Rosebuds
  • Sweet flag/calamus root
The scent traveled through the ancient world: the Egyptians were scandalized when the Greeks began to use kyphi as an aphrodisiac.

The Egyptian method of creating Kyphi was complex, here is an example. Currently, the name kyphi is frequently used by manufacturers of spiritual products to indicate any incense possessing an ancient Egyptian "ambiance."

Signs of Speedy Marriage

Signs of Speedy Marriage and Good Success Attending it by Sundry Signs:

For a woman to have the first and last letters of her christian name the same with the man's surname, that makes love to her, denotes a great union and a generous love.

For a man to have the first and last letters of his christian name the same with the woman's surname, denotes the same.

To think of a party on a sudden waking, without any meditation, on a Friday morning, that before had a place in the affection of the man or woman, is a demonstration of love or extraordinary friendship.

If a ring accidentally falls off a man's finger, that is under no obligation of marriage, and runs directly to the feet of a maid or widow, it denotes not only that he is in love with the party, but that a sudden marriage will ensue.

The singing of a robin-red-breast at your window, in the time of courtship, on a Wednesday, is a sign of marriage and happiness to ensue, with much content .
