frankincense and myrrh. you know of them, yep. they come from the sap of Arabic trees. very fragrant especially when burnt. roman pagans used them as incense, which supposedly floated up into the sky to communicate to the gods. also common in death rituals/processes in Rome and Egypt. they were precious. expensive, sacred, difficult to acquire; had to be imported. gifted by some rich smart men to the child they thought was God, who would become the king of the world.
now you can buy it in your soap bar at TJ Maxx for $4.49 or get them as essential oils to improve your gut function or whatever. what is this place? nothing is sacred here.
