Smelling Besamim When One Has a Cold

Smelling Besamim When One Has a Cold
Day: Friday
Date: July 15, 2016
Parshat: Hukat
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 216

One who is unsure whether or not a particular flower or plant has a nice smell may first smell it to see if it does and then say the beracha and smell it again. Likewise, a person with a cold who is not sure whether or not his sense of smell is functioning properly may first try to smell the besamim and if it works say a beracha and then smell it again.

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