Frankincense & Myrrh Holiday Gift Bags
These traditional holiday gift bags contain 1 ounce of Frankincense Resin, 1 ounce of Myrrh Resin and 3 charcoal discs for burning. Gift bag color may vary.
Frankincense resin is harvested from trees of the genus, Boswellia. There are four main species of trees that produce Frankincense. These trees are a precious resource and the resin needs to be harvested with care. This particular Frankincense from Oman, is harvested in the traditional way from the Boswellia sacra tree. Frankincense is a sacred scent that has been burned for centuries in churches, temples and mosques not only for its aroma but also its antimicrobial properties.
Myrrh resin is harvested from the trees of the genus, Commiphora. This small scrubby tree from the Middle East and Northeast Africa produces this precious gum which has been traded for thousands of years. This particular Myrrh, from Somalia, is harvested from the Commiphora myrrha tree. In combination with Frankincense, Myrrh has been burned for centuries in churches, temples and mosques not only for its powerful aroma, but for its antimicrobial properties as well.
