Besamim Mix

bfarkas | Mar 14, 2008 10:52 AM

For my son's Bar Mitzvah, in May, I want to make a large amount of Besamim to give out to our guests, in small bags, on Saturday night. Initially, I thought of using just whole cloves. Then I thought to add dried Hadas (myrtle) leaves, which has a lovely smell. But I don't know where to find them. Anyone have any idea where I might find Hadasim (myrtle)? Any suggestions as to other spices I might add to the mix?
