This soap is one of the most popular holiday soaps we make at the Soaporium. We actually get requests for it year-round, but it is high dollar to make, so it is reserved for this special time of year. Our soap scent is a rich combination of frankincense, olibanum, myrrh, patchouli, herbaceous woodsy pine, sheer musk and vanilla. At Christmas time, we celebrate the birth of Jesus, and as the story in the Bible tells us, three wise men brought the baby Jesus gifts of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh. Why would the three wise men bring Jesus frankincense and myrrh? Frankincense and myrrh were extremely expensive resins which were used as both medicine, and as Holy anointing oils. Myrrh is mentioned more in the Bible than any other aromatic essential oil. The wise men brought gifts to the baby Jesus which were considered Gifts Fit For a King.
