This spiritual perfume developed thanks to different medieval traditions is an interpretation of the Cross of the Passion of Christ. Confronted and mixed with the essences that we encountered in Jerusalem at the time of Jesus, the result gives a woody fragrance where the fragrances of the olive tree, cedar, acacia and citrus meet…
The Cross is in fact considered the instrument of the salvation of all mankind since it is on it that Christ, by dying, would have redeemed men from their sins, and particularly from original sin.
Indeed, many legends have been circulated on the origin of the wood of the Cross. Indeed, it seemed inconceivable to the Christians of that time that the wood which served for the salvation of all mankind was ordinary wood. This wood therefore had to have "a story".
According to a first tradition, it was made of four different woods (because it is necessary to count the transverse amount, the trunk, the tablet bearing the inscription and the crosspiece for the feet of Christ) : olive wood (symbol of reconciliation), cedar (symbol of immortality and incorruptibility), cypress and palm.
Another medieval tradition, dating back to the apocryphal Gospel of Nicodemus, is taken up in the XNUMXth century in the Légende Dorée by the Dominican Jacques de Voragine. The Redeemer Cross was carved from the wood of the tree that grew on the tomb of Adam, traditionally located in Jerusalem, on the site of the crucifixion. Now, this tree is none other than the one that grew from a seed of the Tree of Life, sown in the mouth of Adam after his death by his son Seth. It is the archangel Mikaël who brought it to Seth from the earthly paradise in order to eventually allow the redemption of original sin. Indeed, Christ is generally referred to as the “new Adam”, who redeems the sin introduced into the world by the first man. The tree that grew on Adam's tomb is then cut down on the orders of King Solomon to serve as timber. Intended first for the construction of the Temple, it was finally assigned to that of a bridge, that of Siloah. The Queen of Sheba, visiting Solomon, kneels before this wooden beam, with the premonition that this wood will be used to make the cross of the passion of Jesus. According to another version, she wrote to Solomon to tell him that to this wood would one day be tied the man whose death would put an end to the kingdom of the Jews. Touched by this premonition, Solomon then orders the workers to remove the sacred wood from the bridge over the Siloam and to bury it deep underground. And, in the place where the tree was buried, the probatic pool was formed later: so that the water healed the sick. This version is illustrated for example by the frescoes by Piero della Francesca in Arezzo.
We can use this perfume at any time of the year in case of strong temptations, bad instincts or when we feel bad impulses.
Also, it is used in prevention, to keep your eyes open and not fall into the trap of sin.
More simply, to thank Jesus for having redeemed us and for always forgiving us for all the faults we commit.
This spiritual scent is also used in the Rite of the Penitent.
Also note that it is beneficial to use this fragrance every May 3 (Invention of the Cross) and every September 14 (Exaltation of the Cross).
We can also use this perfume on people around us to keep them on the right track (uniqueness of the couple, bad relationships, excess of all kinds, laziness, theft, violence ...). In this case, you just have to offer the bottle to the person or else scent their clothes, their home or a personal item.
