I started to read the Game of Thrones series since I’ve enjoyed the TV show so much and I was surprised at how many references there have been to essential oils. Daenerys is perfumed with fragrant oils in her bath. Catelyn was anointed with the seven oils but it doesn’t name what they are. Illiyrio was also anointed with the seven oils. Drogo’s braid was thick with scented oils. Gregor was anointed with the seven oils. There is a reference that to be a knight you must also be anointed with the seven oils. When Daenerys went to the market she bought a dozen of her favorite oils which reminded her of home. There are about 25 other references to oils just in the first book alone!
I know these books are fiction, however, oils have been used by people for thousands of years! I think it’s cool 🙂
