Tears of Myrrh



Tears and Perfume⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

According to Greek Mythology, the aromatic exudings of the myrrh tree are from Myrrha's tears, the subject of the most famous work (now lost) of the poet Helvius Cinna. This gum resin tends to be burned to exude aromas of peacefulness and protection on many levels. ⁣⁣⁣

Creating this scent memory for our home rituals and ceremonies, we formulated Tears of Myrrh to exude the scent of incense inside Roman Basilicas visited on trips to Italy. This ancient and beautifully aromatic experience is a tradition that dates back thousands of years.⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣Into the Mystic⁣⁣⁣

Perfumed trees of antiquity weep bittersweet tears of precious resin. Dark tones of frankincense & myrrh are carried to the heavens on a floral crown of orange blossom and sweet freesia.⁣⁣⁣ Charred vetiver & altar incense rise into a soulful blend of holy smoke.⁣⁣⁣
