The Sweet Fragrance of Thanksgiving

From the November 2010 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The English Word , attar , is from a persian root, which means "fragrance," and refers to the oil extracted from flowers, especially rose petals, to make perfume. The Bulgarian attar of roses is the finest in the world, cultivated in the Valley of Roses in the Balkan Mountains.
