Here is a lovely group of little woodly forest tree guest soaps done in a wintery pine-green and whites. They an be scented with the mysterious scent of Frankinsense and Myrrh which is a somewhat sweet and spicey light fragrance. It always goes hand in hand with my memories of Christmas, which is why I have used it for these little soaps instead of the traditional strong, overpowering pine scents. Frankinsense and Myrrh have had a spiritual significance since ancient times and they also were adopted as medicines for physical ailments. When referring to this pair of herbs, Westerners might immediately think of their historic importance in religion. The herbs are best known through the story of the Three Wise Men (Magi) delivering gold, frankincense, and myrrh for the baby Jesus; myrrh was also used to anoint Jesus' body after the crucifixion. These herbs, valued like gold, were mentioned repeatedly in the Old Testament, in instructions to Moses about making incense and anointing oil, and in the Song of Solomon, where, among other references, are these: You also have a choice of the cutest FROSTY SNOWMEN in Blue n White, the perfect winter soaps for your guest or kids bathroom.

ALL of my soaps are made fresh when you order. I do not keep them in stock.
"Who is this coming up from the wilderness
Like palm-trees of smoke,
Perfumed with myrrh and frankincense,
From every powder of the merchant?"
"Till the day doth break forth,
And the shadows have fled away,
I will get me unto the mountain of myrrh,
And unto the hill of frankincense."
