Gift Guide Pairings: Frankincense + Myrrh

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! At least, we think so. To kick off the holiday season, and to celebrate our Holiday Collection, we wanted to continue our Gift Guide Pairings series with each of our holiday candles, starting with a classic: Frankincense + Myrrh.

It’s a tale as old as time: The three wise men bringing gifts of frankincense, myrrh, and gold. We’ve got the Frankincense + Myrrh, all you’ll need to add is the gold. For that, we have the perfect suggestion. Mejuri is an ethical fine jewelry company centered around sustainability, community, and women celebrating themselves. Their Anchor Chain Necklace is a beautiful and dainty option to pair with our Frankincense + Myrrh candle to round out the trio of classic holiday gifts. Made with 14k solid yellow gold, this necklace will not oxidize or discolor, making it able to stand the test of time, just like the three wise men.

If you’re looking for a more modern gift, we recommend the Infrared Sauna Blanket by Higher Dose. Frankincense and myrrh are actually both scents known to reduce stress and aid in meditation, making our Frankincense + Myrrh candle the best to have lit while relaxing in a high-tech sauna blanket that brings the spa to you or your gift recipient. The infrared sauna blanket detoxifies the body, relaxes the mind, promotes glowing skin, and improves your mood. It’s basically like giving someone the gift of youth and euphoria, all wrapped up into one blanket. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!

To help you or your gift recipient relax even further, this License To Chill Set by Apothékary is here to get the job done. This set includes 3 edible powders that can easily be sprinkled into drinks or onto food to help promote relaxation and reduce stress. The Chill The F* Out powder helps boost serotonin and target cortisol levels, the hormone that causes stress. It tastes like peppermint hot chocolate, so it’s a perfect mixer to any warm drink. The next powder included is Do Not Disturb, which has many herbs known for their sedative properties to help reduce anxiety and promote a deep, restful sleep. The last herb powder included is Ashwagandha Root, a powerful herb known to have near-immediate calming effects. This trio will pack a punch against stress and it’s perfect to pair with our Frankincense + Myrrh candle as a gift to anyone who feels out of sorts.

Whether you’re looking for a gift for yourself or others this holiday season, each of our candles provide a good starting point for inspiration. Our Frankincense + Myrrh in particular is perfect for those who need a reminder to take some extra care for themselves amidst the chaos that this time of year can bring. While you’re at it, don’t be afraid to check in with yourself and treat yourself to some extra relaxation too. We create these gift guides as ideas for others just as much as ideas for you!
