Some Examples of Boreh Atzei Besamim

Some Examples of Boreh Atzei Besamim
Day: Monday
Date: July 18, 2016
Parshat: Balak
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 216

The beracha before smelling myrtle, jasmin, citrus flowers, roses, and cinnamon is boreh atzei besamim since they all grow on trees or bushes with hard branches. The correct beracha before smelling basil is also boreh atzei besamim even though very often the branches do not last long enough to become stiff.

DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
