Hungary Water

"This is about one of the most interesting recipes I'm posting. This is from the book:Natural Beauty At Home by Janice Cox. This book mentioned for this recipe that a very long time ago in Hungary there lived a queen named Maria who was known for her beauty and love of fragrance. Legend has it that she developed a fragrant orange water to entice and tantalise her many suitors. One 18 year old Polish king became so enamored with her that he proposed marriage to her. She was 72 that time!!"

<p>Hi Everybody! Thanks for stopping by in my little niche of the mighty Zaar world. <br />Here is a quick link to the beauty recipes I've posted (highest rated so far): <br /> <br />A few things I've done:- <br /> <br />1. Worked part time as a Telemarketer in Oman in the Crowne Plaza Hotel. <br /> <br />2. Worked as a Certified Professional Tarotist (Tarot Card Reader) and done accurate predicitions for many people from different parts of the world, most memorable of which is the reading I did for my college Law lecturer and it came true. <br /> <br />3. Written nearly 1000 poems several of which have been published in leading newspapers, ezines and magazines both in Oman and India. <br /> <br />4. Worked as a Moderator on - my BEST and FAVOURITE site on the internet. <br /> <br />My other interests include: Numerology, Vaastu Shastra, Feng Shui, Face Reading, Reiki and Astrology! I am really very keen on getting well-versed with metaphysical sciences such as Astrology, I-Ching, Feng Shui, Runes, Enneagram, Kabbalah and many more. <br /> <br />I love researching on the mythology of ancient Goddesses and then condensing my research into poems. <br /> <br />In the mood to gift me something? Here's what I'd love - A Nissan 350Z {my dream car}</p>
