Blessing of Spices

Pass around a spice box filled with cinnamon and cloves, a basket with herbs like rosemary and sage, or any spices that smell good to you. Take a deep breath in and let the fragrant scents remind you of the joys of Shabbat as it draws to a close. 

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, בּוֹרֵא מִינֵי בְשָׂמִים.

Baruch atah, Adonai, Elohaynu melech ha’olam, boray minay vesamim.

Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Ruler of the universe, who creates different fragrant spices.
