Excerpt
In some cultures in Eastern Europe, a woman’s sweat was thought to have magical properties. Hungarian girls were said to be able to put a spell on men by rubbing dough on their sweaty bodies, baking it into a cake, and then giving it to some unsuspecting victim as a philtre, or love potion. There was a long tradition in Europe for a woman to place a slice of apple in her armpit at the beginning of an evening of dancing. At the end of the evening, she would give the sweat-soaked fruit to her betrothed to be treasured by him as a potent and fragrant outpouring of her love.
