Resin Incense - PREMIUM FRANKINCENSE & MYRRH CHRISTMAS GIFT BAG
DID YOU KNOW: The 'Gold' in 'Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh' may have been referring to golden coloured AMBERGRIS - a scented waxy grease found in the digestive system of sperm whales, which was used as incense? While we don't stock anything whale related (and wouldn't!), Frankincense and Myrrh are still synonymous with the Christmas story, and whether you just want to try out premium versions of two of the most popular types of resin incense, or would like a Christmas-themed pack or gift, this gift pack includes everything you need to burn pure and natural Frankincense and Myrrh as incense.
Our Premium Frankincense & Myrrh Gift Bag is a step above the standard quality, and includes premium versions of the two resins - ETHIOPIAN GOLDEN FRANKINCENSE and MYRRH SELECT, our two highest grade types. The pack also includes TWO ROLLS of 10 SOEX QUICK-LITE charcoal tablets, a set of STAINLESS STEEL CHARCOAL TONGS and a keepable double-sided INSTRUCTIONS & TIPS CARD with detailed instructions and safety notes on one side, and hints and tips to burning your incense on the reverse. Everything is packaged in a GIFT BAG ready for giving, or as storage for your kit.
You can burn the resins in a bowl of sand or earth, or we also have a range of resin censers (burners), available separately (CLICK HERE). Try adding your choice of censer for a truly beautiful gift.
ETHIOPIAN GOLDEN FRANKINCENSE (25g)
Our GOLDEN FRANKINCENSE is a beautiful premium quality Boswellia papyrifera resinPapyrifera originating from Ethiopia, an Eastern African country revered for its quality Frankincense. In Ancient Egypt Frankincense was worth more than its weight in gold - it is somewhat more accessible now! The aroma is clean and lemony, with a distinct fresh Frankincense aroma. Frankincense is thought to elevate the mind and expand spiritual consciousness, perfect for meditation, and mixes well with other resins, in particular Myrrh.
MYRRH SELECT (25g)
Our Myrrh Select is our premium quality Myrrh - a real step above the usual quality. This version contains beautiful Myrrh resin pieces, with the occasional piece of resinous bark - straight from the plant. MYRRH is the oleoresin of the Commiphora myrrha shrub, known to be used as incense for more than 3500 years, and was the basis of many early perfumes. The aroma is spicy and delicate, and is considered to be profoundly calming and restorative. Myrrh mixes well with Frankincense, which is why the two are often found as a pair.
WHAT IS RESIN INCENSE?
Resin incense has been used since Biblical days. It is the purest form of incense: natural gums, resins, wood chips and herbs from aromatic plants, used either in pure pellets or in a pre-mixed blend, and warmed with heat (usually charcoal disks or tablets) to emit their fragrance through aromatic smoke. Aroma Queen stocks dozens of different pure gums and blends, in the most divine natural scents to suit every taste. If you enjoy standard stick incense, you are sure to enjoy resin incense.
