Love and lavender


Let’s go back to the days of Antiquity . Roman prostitutes used to smear the body with lavender oil so that their smell bewitched their customers. Also, the Romans were not allowed to drink wine. It was forbidden to them by men! So when the men went about their business and moved away from the field of vision of the Romans, they seized the key of the cellar and stole some glasses of wine. So that their breath does not put the flea in the ears of men, the Romans chew lavender flowers to mask the smell of alcohol in their throat. Their husbands only found that their wives were in an excellent mood these days!
