The uniquely sweet and incensy smell of our Frankincense & Myrrh Premium Soap reminds one of the reason for this season, as our soap contains two ingredients presented to the Baby Jesus at his birth - frankincense and myrrh. The third gift given to the babe was gold, represented in our soap topped with swirls of Safflower Powder to soothe dry skin. A superb bar for body or hands with unparalleled moisture, bubble, and lather.

Symbolic Background of Ingredients
Frankincense was used anciently by the Hebrews in several ways. The three most symbolically relevant to the baby Jesus was as an offering at Minhah, at the meat offering, and as a potion. The Minhah, meaning "meal offering" included an offering of pure frankincense, as well as an offering of "first fruits." The meat offering required the burning of frankincense in conjunction with animal sacrafice, thus the incense became the symbol for the Divine name (Malachi 1:11; Song of Solomon 1:3). And, according to the Talmud, Frankincense was also used as an anesthetic potion and given to prisoners who were condemned to die to dull the pain of execution.
How Frankincense is processed is equally thought-provoking. Frankincense is gathered from the Boswellia tree which has an uncanny ability to grow in very inhospitable environments and has been known to grow right out of solid rock. When it does, it forms a bulbous disk-like swelling at the base of its trunk that prevents it from being torn from the rock when violent storms, that frequent the region, rage. Frankincense is created by slashing the bark of this amazing tree until it bleeds resin that hardens into what are called tears. It is these tears that are steam distilled to get the essential oil used in our soap.
During the time of Christ, Myrrh was one of the most highly valued commodities in trade. The name translates as "bitter," or "was bitter." It was often used in conjunction with Frankincense in temple worship, and was used as an annointing oil for alters. Myrrh was also a substance used to embalm the dead. It is collected in much the same way as Frankincense with the bark being pierced to the sapwood until it bleeds a gum resine that quickly becomes hard and glossy. It is through steam distillation that the essential oil we use in our soaps is made.
