Part of my Mytholotea series. Bastet is the Egyptian goddess of cats. Because her name literally translated means 'female of the ointment jar,'she was associated with the lavish jars in which Egyptians stored their perfume. Thusly, she became regarded as the goddess of perfumes, or perfumed protector. Furthermore, when Anubis became the god of embalming, Bastet, as goddess of ointment, came to be regarded as his wife. Also, because domestic cats tend to be tender and protective of their offspring, Bastet was regarded as a good mother, and she is sometimes depicted with numerous kittens. Consequently, a woman who wanted children sometimes wore an amulet showing the goddess with the same number of kittens as the number of children she desired. Suggested brewing instructions: 200° for 5 mins.
