Frankincense and Myrrh
One of our most popular and fast selling candles is the Frankincense and Myrrh candle in this gorgeous black metal container.
The fragrances of frankincense and myrrh are often associated with Christmas. They were two of the 3 gifts that the Magi or wise men brought to Jesus, to welcome the newborn King to the world. So, quite naturally, people like to buy this candle for the holidays.
However when we look into the Bible, frankincense and myrrh are mentioned in a few other places. The first mention is in the book of Genesis, where they are referred to as aromatic gums. Both have medicinal properties, were used as perfumes, were rare, and therefore precious and expensive. They still are still rare, precious and expensive, even though modern distillation processes have made it easier to acquire the oils. But back to the Bible, Frankincense and Myrrh are alluded to the love and suffering of Jesus Christ for mankind. In studying about these fragrances, the Lord highlighted Song of Solomon 4:6. The Shulamite in this verse professes her love and loyalty to the King, her Lord (Jesus), and commits to ascend the mountaintop in suffering love (Myrrh) and burning incense (Frankincense). This verse is available as an alternative label, for those who wish to use this candle as part of their devotions.
The label with Scripture is an option, there are no changes to the candle itself.
