One legend explains the origin of the spices used in the ancient Israelite Temple creations; when the Lord commanded the angels to turn Adam and Eve out of Paradise, the man and woman began to weep bitterly. Adam asked the angels at least to allow him to take sweet scented spices with him out of the Garden of Eden so that he would be able to bring offerings unto God. Permission granted, he gathered nard, calamus, saffron, cinnamon and other sorts of seeds, and took them with him.
