Frankincense resin • Myrrh chips • Lapis Lazuli crystal chips• Frankincense oil • Myrrh oil • Ayin Hara (evil eye) amulet
This blend echoes the days our ancestors engaged in ancient ritual worship. Myrrh is referred to 11 (or arguably more) times in the Tanakh (the entire Jewish Bible) and is included in many ancient temple recipes. It was used to perfume the robes of the priests, blended in the holy anointing oil, and so much more. According the legend, myrrh is a reference to Moshe Rabbeinu, who led our people to freedom from years of slavery and oppression. Myrrh is also connected with Avraham Avinu, symbolizing Mt. Moriah — where he was put to the ultimate test by The Creator. In the beautiful love poetry of Shir HaShirim, the Song of Songs, myrrh is mentioned seven times, including imagery of a other-worldly wilderness “perfumed with myrrh and frankincense”. Also mentioned throughout Jewish texts, frankincense is one of the 11 components of the incense used in the holy Temple, and one of the perfumes used to honor dead royalty.
