Frankincense and Myrrh Essential Oil Blend
What were the three gifts bought to baby Jesus by the three Kings to celebrate his birth?
Remember this Christmas Carol connecting the three gifts bought by the three Kings to baby Jesus?
We three kings of orient are:
- Bearing gifts we traverse afar
- Field and fountain
- Moor and mountain
Following yonder star...
What were those three gifts?
Born a King on Bethlehem's plain
Gold I bring to crown Him again...
Frankincense to offer have I
Incense owns a Deity nigh...
Myrrh is mine
Its bitter perfume breathes...
Frankincense and myrrh, two of the gifts presented to baby Jesus in the New Testament narrative, have a long history dating back thousands of years. At the time Jesus is thought to have been born, frankincense and myrrh may have been worth more than their weight in gold, which was the third gift offered by the three Kings. Though perhaps best known for their use as incense in ancient rituals, both have proven medicinal properties.
These nostalgic essential oils have been blended for you in a Christmas special:
