Pulse points / TTTR rite NO.3 /
/ pulse points / a pulse represents the tactile arterial palpation of the heartbeat by trained fingertips.
/ TTTR rite NO.3 / The traditional recommendation has always been that fragrance should be applied to the pulse points, as the veins are closest to the surface of the skin at these points. The body heat generated by these points helps intensify the fragrance. The pulse points are also warmer than other areas of the body. A perfume reacts to warmth and the scent is stronger on the warmer areas of a body, so if you dab ittr on these warmer pulse points, it will make a stronger presence.
Ittr’s like all fragrances, are chemistry experiments. The notes of ittr open up in different ways on people, based on their own constitution of skin oils and sweat. Your everyday, alcohol-based perfume stays on for a few hours at best, after which the smell tapers off. But ittr’s have a bit more magic to them. An ittr can last for upwards more than a day, intensifying after an hour or two, as the body’s warmth diffuses the oil molecules into the air.
According to ancient Indian custom ittr should be applied with cotton, which you will find in our miniature pouch. Pulse points on the human body are: behind the ear, base of throat, neck, collarbone, shoulder, armpit, chest, belly button, inner wrist, inner elbow, below midriff, groin, behind knee, calve, ankle and foot.
