As a part of her methodology ... Tapputi would work under a full moon while seeking communion with the stars in the night sky. This esoteric aspect to her Mesopotamian perfume-making activities was one of many secrets uncovered during translations of the tablet that discussed Tapputi’s innovative modus operandi.

Perhaps one should think of sacred ointments or religious ceremonies rather than an esoteric use in a modern sense :?:
