Research of  ancient Egyptian notes recorded on papyrus & engravings on the temple walls have revealed that a sophisticated technique was in practice for extracting essential oils from flora and herbal plants. A layer of vegetable fat was used for absorbing the essence of the aromatic flowers, which was then dissolved in alcohol to be used in cosmetics & toiletries. This ancient technique is known as Enfleurage and the resulting aromatic oils were also used for massage, inhalation, potions and even ingested.

Here is an ancient fragrance formula from Egypt

Myrrh: 3 parts
Sandalwood: 2 parts
Frankincense: 1 part
Rose Petals: 1 part
Lotus Oil: a few drops
Raw Honey: 1/2 parts
Dried Raisins (crushed): 1/2 part
Mix thoroughly and let dry over many days. Cut into small blocks or roll into small pellets.
