At Christmas time, our Frankincense and Myrrh range is meaningful to many households, due to its associations with the age-old biblical stories that define our festive season.
Why Frankincense & Myrrh is perfect for Christmas
We all know the Bible story about the Three Wise Men bringing Baby Jesus gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Matthew II tells us that the wise men journeyed from the East in search of the Christ child. They asked of King Herod where they can find Him, saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him” (Matthew 2:2). Upon finding the baby Jesus, “they bowed down and worshipped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh” (Matthew 2:11).
