Of course, you should not take date for a stimulator of patrimonial activity: lol: And that someone else will be put, so about a kilogrammchik before childbirth... The white friend will be glad

And if it is serious... Israel is not a little supplier of dates to the world market, in the south we have whole groves. I.e. the local community, especially natives of their North Africa and Maghreb of 100% are familiar with this product, its properties. Naturally, there are still any beliefs, especially among the religious population, connected with products. And so, never saw and did not hear anything in relation to dates.

And here what rather often faced in the rodzal, so it a citron. It is a fruit of family of a citrus, it is almost similar to a lemon, only a skin at it very thick and pimply. They say, began to smell or chewing of a crust relieve skhvatochny pains.

Well, in principle, the aromatherapy in rodzala is applied.
