Frankincense and Myrrh Combo Kit
Biblical scholars and theologians have offered varying interpretations of the meaning and significance of the frankincense, gold and myrrh that were presented to Jesus, according to the Gospel of Matthew (2:11). These valuable items were standard gifts to honor a king or deity in the ancient world: gold as a precious metal, frankincense as perfume or incense, and myrrh as anointing oil.
Frankincense and myrrh essential oils have been used in combination since 1500 B.C. Frankincense is an aromatic resin obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia and has been hypothesized to exhibit a number of health supporting properties. Frankincense oil is prepared by the steam distillation of frankincense gum resin and is frequently used in aromatherapy practices. According to previous studies, the constituents of frankincense oil vary according to the climate, harvest conditions and geographical sources of the frankincense resin.
Myrrh has a yellow oleo-gum resin that exists in its stem and is used worldwide for the production of myrrh, particularly in China and Egypt. The constituents of myrrh, include volatile oil (2–8%), resin (23–40%), gum (40–60%) and bitter principles (10–25%).
