Christmas Candle Frankincense & Myrrh
View more details
Perfectly natural fragrances and the pure form of a cubic have been combined in this handmade candle. When lit, the entire wax surface excudes an almost magical glow as the wax slowly releases the rich aromatics of natural essential oils.
Unlike many other candles, these candles are not machine made. Right from the beginning they are poured by hand, cleaned and crafted by people. People who have learned this art and take pride in that craft. This makes these candles so special.
Pure cotton wick, burn time 40 hours.
Frankincense and Myrrh are probably the very first fragrances to be commercially traded. These resins from trees native to the Arabian penninsula were so highly regarded in ancient times that an entire fleet of ships was exclusively reserved for their transport and trade. An Egyptian papyrus dated 1550 BC lists these two scents as major ingredients for Kyphi, one of the earliest known perfumes. The Magi (the three Holy Kings of the Bible) believed the most precious gifts that they could present to the son of their God were Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. The enduring allure of these ancient fragrances is undiminished by the passage of time.
