- Women in Ancient Egypt - The Great Queen Hatshepsut
The Great queen Hatshepsut a symbol of female power, spirituality, determination, and success, the queen was born at the beginning of a sublime time of Egyptian majestic force and success, properly called the New Kingdom, a rule of 22 years full of power and political stability. Hatshepsut is notable for her aspiring structure projects in Egypt especially the few Obelisks' at Karnack temple and her funerary Temple at Deir el-Bahri. ( This was a photo from our 2020 Study tour) One of her greatest achievements is the expeditions to Punt “Queen Hatshepsut sent her fleet to Punt, which is the country on the southwestern side of Bab al-Mandab, south of the Red Sea. For trade and to bring incense, myrrh, and aromatic trees from the country, in addition to bringing ebony wood, ivory and rare animals to Egypt. When the expedition ships arrive to punt, the Prince of Punt and his wife and their followers appear behind them, greeting and welcoming the leader of the journey. Egyptian ships were loaded with the products and goods of Punt. Of ivory, ebony, fragrant woods, leopard skin, gold, incense, and monkeys, as well as some of the inhabitants of Punt who came with their children to Egypt, and the accompanying text mentioned: “No such thing has been brought to any king who has existed since eternity.” Some of the incense trees, which were transported with their roots in pots, were planted on both sides of the entrance to the Deir al-Bahari temple, and some parts of them remain in their places until now. It was not common for a Queen to be a ruler or a GOD in this time in Ancient Egypt Hatshepsut had to support her reign with both social and religious legitimacy The queen was a beautiful woman, however she was wearing men cloth and fake beard in all religious ceremonies. In addition to that she took for herself the five royal titles according to the inherited Egyptian royal traditions : 1-Hor (Horus): Wirte-kao means strong companion. 2- Nabati (the two ladies): Wedgat-rabbut, meaning flourishing for years. 3- Hor Nabu (Horus the Victorious): Nirat-Khao, meaning the sanctification of sunshine. 4- Nesu Betty (King of the South and North): Maat-Ka-Ra, which translates as Adalah Qurain Ra 5- Sa Ra (Ibn Ra): Ghanemat-Amun Hat-Shepsut which is her personal name and translates to merging with Amun, the introduction to the Nobles Ancient Egypt is full of magic and powerful females, this month will be dedicated to all the beautiful queens of Egypt, so stay Tuned! If you are going to Egypt in our Study tour this year you will visit the temple and the amazing architect and stories on its wall With Love Raghda
- Bewitched Ear
“Tinnitus is commonly described as a ringing in the ears, but it also can sound like roaring, clicking, hissing, or buzzing. It may be soft or loud, high pitched or low pitched. You might hear it in either one or both ears. Roughly 10 percent of the adult population of the United States has experienced tinnitus lasting at least five minutes in the past year. This amounts to nearly 25 million Americans “(1) https://www.nidcd.nih.gov/health/tinnitus As an Aromatherapist I am always searching for ways to improve the overall emotional well – being also find alternatives ways to help with the symptoms, I was very curious to read about the treatments used for tinnitus from a historical perspective, we have to keep in mind that Aromatherapy is not a substitute for treatments offered by health care professionals My Go- To historical books were: 1) Ebers papyrus, one of the most complete and most comprehensive medical texts from ancient Egypt written in the 18th Dynasty (sixteenth century B.C.) and includes many treatments, in paragraph 678 there is a treatment mentioned for a 'Bewitched Ear' which describes the treatments as infusion of Balanites aegyptiaca and frankincense oil together with two other unknown ingredients into the ear. 2) The Canonon one of the major medieval medical textbooks written by Avicenna or Ibn-Sina (980-1036) the amazing Persian physicians, he mentioned at least five types of tinnitus, one of them was related to the brain and his prescription was “comforting of the brain with myrrh and administration of the oil of almonds to the ears. However, internal use of aromatherapy is not something we promote but it was interesting to see Frankincense and Myrrh in the treatments and their approach in treating the symptoms. After watching this Video “ The Journey of the sound to the Brain” , understanding the anatomy of the ears , reading the MIT research about “you hear what your brain hears”, learning about the auditory nerve ( cochlear nerve) which is responsible for carrying the electrical signals to the brain . knowing that all nerves and brain cells are interconnected inside our body, my approach was to work with oils on the psychological aspects to keep the brain active, healthy calm and focused and at the same time work on the inflammations and Cortisol the stress hormone. I was looking for a synergy that can be balancing and work on many different levels therapeutically and energetically, my intention was to help the Tinnitus patients calm down, work on their nervous system, and help to enhance the signals inside the brain with the following selection of essential oils to be used in an inhaler. 1- Bergamot Citrus bergamia Therapeutic properties: Antimicrobial Energetics : Harmonizing – Emotional stability 2- Helichrysum Helichrysum italicum Therapeutic properties: Anti-inflammatory Energetics: Harmonizing and restorative 3- Lavender Lavandula angustifolia Therapeutic properties: Anti-inflammatory Energetics: Balancing, uplifting, and nourishing 4- Basil Ocimum basilicum Therapeutic properties: Nervine Energetics: Clarity and strength 5- Frankincense Frankincense Carterii Therapeutic properties: Nervine Energetics: Relaxing, revitalizing and stimulant 6- Rosemary 1,8 cineole Rosmarinus officinalis Therapeutic properties: Free Radicals scavenging activity Energetics: Stimulant and restorative The reason I like personal inhalers is that it is very personal, and it has the fast and greatest impact on our emotions, stress levels and memory.
