    Before soaps were created, Ancient Romans utilized various raw materials of the land for washing & perfuming the body. Often a mixture of clay & oils was applied with a flat curved tool called a strigil. This was a process, everything from the sourcing of materials, to the mixing of them, to the actual application. By doing this, it showed great devotion to the gods they honored, resulting in a tether of scent between them. The most common raw materials used for oils/ointments were roses, pomegranates, lavender, quinces, grapes, rosemary, basil, bay laurel, myrtle, & olive trees. The most precious raw materials often acquired only by the rich were cinnamon & myrrh.

    -TELINUM FRAGRANCE BALM

    Telinum was a greasy balm that was created with a mixture of an emollient (like, beeswax) & other oils derived from raw materials, particularly Fenugreek, Sweet Clover, & Marjoram. This was also said to be Caesar’s favorite scent to wear.

    Our take on Telinum is a gender neutral fragrance balm that is skin safe & can be applied on the neck, wrists, or anywhere else externally. This balm is hardened with beeswax for a long lasting fragrance balm. Just run your index finger into it lightly for a light scent or you can apply more pressure to release more balm & more scent. The scent is very alluring with sweet sugary notes, fruits, floras, & herbs. The more you use it, the more fragrant it will become!

    This balm contains:

    Organic Beeswax: Beeswax itself was used for its binding properties as a poultice, emollient, skincare & healing, & embalming the dead.

    Organic Grape Seed Oil: (carrier oil base) Representing the grapes that were utilized for their medicinal, culinary, & fragrant qualities. Grape seed oil is also a non-greasy carrier oil for safe application.

    Fenugreek: (sweet maple syrup scent) considered a sacred embalming, Fenugreek represents growth, fertility, abundance, prosperity.

    Marjoram: (herbaceous, sweet, & woodsy) often used for cleansing, attracting love, strengthening love, & protecting love.

    Sweet Clover: (sweet & earthy) an offering to deities, used to attract & honor the spirits.
