Omani Frankincense and Myrrh Incense - 70g
Frankincense and myrrh have had an unrivalled reputation in The Middle East since ancient times; frankincense once held the same value as gold in Oman and was the country’s main source of wealth. Frankincense and myrrh were both offered as two of the great gifts by the wise men in the story of the birth of Jesus and even a tale of the legendary queen of Sheba tells of her arrival in Jerusalem to visit Solomon with a train of camels carrying gold, frankincense and myrrh. Associated with divinity, holiness and spirituality, when burnt as incense the twisting motion of the smoke as it rises traditionally symbolizes prayers travelling to the heavens. They produce a woody and honeyed fragrance when burnt over hot coals that instantly calms the senses relieving anxiety, stress, insomnia and depression. Used for over thousands of years to purify the body, soul and home, these exotic gems will transport you to the parts of the Arab world that have been infused with their magic.
