The prices of the true (unadulterated and undiluted) essential oils of Myrrh and Frankincense have increased drastically in just the past year and adulteration has, therefore, entered the marketplace. We do purchase the highest quality of these two essential oils and use them in our facial products, but feel that they are too expensive to use in our soaps. To make up for this, we've added a hefty amount of true Myrrh and Frankincense powders, plus a tiny amount of fragrance. This result is a soap that is pure, warm, mellow classic Myrrh that also has all the benefits of being particularly skin friendly and beneficial for dry, chapped or mature skin.  Of course, these two precious oils are very sacred and special for Christmas. This would make a really nice gift for someone special.
