The First Gifts – Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. We are all familiar with Gold but what of Frankincense and Myrrh? What were these mystical offerings?

Frankincense is a resin from the Boswellia Sacra tree – a tree that has grown on the inhospitable slopes of the Arabian Sea for thousands of years. It was and still is used as incense, it was thought to aid the transport of prayer to heaven. Frankincense has been one of the world’s most treasured commodities since the beginning of written history. At its peak its value rivaled that of gold, the rarest silks, and the most precious of gems.
Myrrh is resin from the Commiphora Myrrha tree. In ancient times Myrrh was among the most valuable substances known. It was used as incense and also in Arabian folk medicine. When processed into oil, it was used in the mummification of the Pharaohs in ancient Egypt and to anoint kings. 
We bring our supplies from source -  Frankincense from the sultanate of Oman and Myrrh from The Yemen. They are the finest grades available. Please beware of cheaper grades being sold elsewhere as these usually come from Somalia or India and cannot compare to the Arabian resins in quality and fragrance. We are honoured to bring you the sacred first gifts.
