Smells can trigger a pallet of memories for us.
I have this experience when I walk into my childhood church. The combination of paraffin wax, wood polish, perfumes, and the dominate smell of frankincense and Myrrh fill the air. I think weddings, baptism, funerals, but also think, I must behave!
This fragrance has been intimately intertwined with humanity throughout recorded history. The substances' musky plumes of smoke are most often associated with religious rituals around the world, including ceremonies in the ancient temples of Jerusalem and modern Roman Catholic liturgies. Beyond those uses, frankincense and myrrh may also have medicinal and psychoactive components.
Hints of citrusy bergamot and amber open up to a heart of resinous myrrh and frankincense. The wood and incense notes are softened by powder and oud in the base. Olibanum, patchouli, and coriander seed essential oils reinforce the earthiness of Frankincense and Myrrh in this candle
