Myrrh Votive Candle

(click the pic to go to the etsy listing)

Myrrh has an enduring aroma and was one of the
most widely used oils of the ancient civilizations -- it
was valued as a perfume, incense, and medicine. It
may raise consciousness and give a lift to feelings of
weakness, apathy, and lack of incentive. It is also said
to have a cooling effect on heated emotions and to
strengthen the ability to endure difficult circumstances.
Myrrh was a gift to the infant Jesus at his birth and
was also handed to him on the cross mixed with wine.
The ancient Egyptians burned it at noon everyday as
part of their sun worshiping rituals. Myrrh's nature is
to assist us with a deeper understanding of the union
of Heaven and Earth.
