As a child in the old country, I was always dragged to religious and cultural ceremonies. I remember attending processions dedicated to this or that saint. I could see thousands of people walking behind an image. Many of them carrying and swinging incense burners supported by chains. The powerful and yet comforting scent of Frankincense and Myrrh engulfing me and my family as we walked behind the "effigy du jour". Frankincense and Myrrh each have ritual and medicinal uses dating back around 5,000 years ago. Needless to say, the combination of Frankincense and Myrrh is perfect for prayer and meditation. This powerful combo promotes focus and calmness. It eases anxiety, stress, grief and sadness. Try this soap in a nice long warm shower before going to sleep, this combo promotes restful sleep. And you will think that that is all [which is a lot!]. Nope. Frankincense and Myrrh are packed with analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties! This blend can help relax muscles. But there is more! Frankincense and Myrrh essential oils both [the main ingredients in this soap] happen to be renowned for their skin-nourishing properties. This combo can contribute to glowing skin and the reduction of brown spots and sun damage [Yeey!]. The last ingredient in this soap is Peppermint essential oil. Peppermint essential oil contains menthol, which stimulates the skin making it feel energized and alive while promoting blood flow. It can help control the production of oil in the skin and reducing the the number of clogged pores.
