of frankincense and myrrh
Frankincense originates from the term "franc encens", which means quality incense in Old French. Frankincense has a deep warmth to its earthy scent that leaves a soothing effect on the nervous system, which helps calm and uplift the spirits and at the same time, increase energy. Its ability to assist concentration indicates its long history of use as an incense, an aid to meditation, and healing.
One of its most popular scent partners, Myrrh, has similar properties to Frankincense's natural benefits. Myrrh has been used since ancient times in Egypt and China as a healing agent for the skin, and to stimulate and strengthen the respiratory and digestive systems. Other than this, Myrrh has traditionally been regarded as a skin preserver, capable of delaying wrinkles and other signs of aging skin.
With its history and long list of benefits, Frankincense and Myrrh paired together make truly a unique and precious blend, perfect for gifting your loved ones this holiday season.
