HAVDALAH Fragrant Spices for the Havdalah ceremony. These are spices for Besamim, the Havdalah service that marks the end of Shabbat. Ready-to-use fragrant mixture for the b'samim spice box. "Blessed are you, Lord, our God, sovereign of the universe, who creates varieties of spices. (Amen)"
The Kabbalah of Smell:
During the Havdalah parting services, smelling a pleasant fragrance comforts the soul, bringing it a sense of tranquility and relief. Spices of cloves, cinnamon and bay leaves represent a compensation for the loss of the special sabbath spirit. The spices made into sachets or kept in a special decorated holder called a b'samim box.
Barukh atah Adonai Elohaynu melekh ha-olam, borei minei b'samim. (Ah-main)
