Run down the olfactory lane
Whenever a baby would be brought home my grandmother would ensure a pair of vasaka bead bracelets was tied around the baby’s wrists. She would say they are good for the digestive system of the baby and also have healing power. I as an individual have never been interested with the positive effects of the vasaka I have always loved its sweet fragrance. Ooh how I love to hold babies with this amazing herb, they absolutely smell great.
‘A combination of grassy notes with a tang of acids and a hint of vanilla over an underlying mustiness’ is what chemists state the odour emitting from old books.
What ever be it aromas, fragrances are linked to thoughts and rack the deepest recess.
