Tis the season when we retell the story of the Magi – the Three Kings or Three Wise Men. These travelers from far-off lands followed the star to the place where the Baby Jesus lay. They carried with them gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

We know about the value of gold, but just what are frankincense and myrrh?


This is a dry resin from the Boswelia tree, which is native to the Middle East (Oman, Yemen) and northeastern Africa (Somalia).


This is a resin or sap-like substance from the Commiphora Tree which is also native to the same part of the world.

Frankincense (also known as olibanum) and Myrrh symbolize various aspects of our life here on earth – the bitter and the sweet, the good and the bad. Frankincense is sweet and spicy and is one of the consecrated incenses described in the ancient scriptures. Myrrh, on the other hand, is bitter and more pungent. It is one more most oft-used essential oils, and it has been recorded as being used for soothing minor bruises, aches, and sprains. It was also mentioned to be used as part of the dressing for Jesus’ burial. Therefore, frankincense and myrrh, when used together, bring a balancing presence to our lives.
