While the Chinese found smoking tobacco distasteful, snuff, which mixed tobacco with herbs and spices, was believed to have medicinal properties.
It was considered a cure for migraines, and as one high-ranking court scholar wrote, it was "said to be able to improve one's sight, especially to exorcise epidemic diseases." Because snuff was inhaled through the nose, it often caused one to sneeze, which was considered a means of purging illnesses and impurities.

It's a few simple notes, blended to utter perfection. My husband didn't like this on me so lucky him, he got the whole bottle.When I die, I don't want a fancy funeral, but I do want someone to empty a whole bottle of this into my coffin, because this is the best damn thing I've ever smelled. I want to spray directly up my nose onto my brain so I can smell it all the time. The somewhat loud and pungent grassy green opening catches people off guard, I'm sure. Greens, a hint of lemon, smooth creamy wood, and a hint of florals - all pulled together and turned into something elemental with the inspired addition of peppermint.
