Though many people know of the legendary gifts of the Magi, few have experienced the extraordinary scent of frankincense and myrrh. These fragrant resins, used by ancient Greeks and Romans for medicinal and religious purposes, can be enjoyed on your evening fire or as incense. Our special set comes in an intricately inlaid wooden box that itself comes in a beautiful velvet pouch.

Comes in a 8''W x 2''D x 2''H box within a velvet gift bag. Take care when opening the box; the resin is loose inside.


If you would like to burn the resin as incense, you will need a brazier that can hold a few nuggets over a flame. Don't light the resin directly, as you would with cone or stick incense. Since frankincense and myrrh are tree resin, the nuggets will not burn down to ash, but rather they will bubble and melt, which can permanently blacken the surface it's burned on.

    from Melbourne, FL

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Beautiful Presentation

    Cons

    • Not very fragrant

    Best Uses

    • Conversation starter
    • Decorative Box

    Comments about The Gift of Kings:

    Maybe resins in general were more aromatic 2100 years ago. Maybe NG just got a bad batch. If you are expecting a dramatic burst of ancient fragrance, don't bother. The box is very pretty, though.

          Few textile manufacturers still take the time to process natural indigo or block-print fabrics, but both practices continue to flourish in Rajasthan, India, where this handcrafted bedding is made using techniques that have been perfected over centuries. Bundles of the indigo plant are soaked to extract the vibrant dye, while long sheets of cotton are laid out awaiting the color. With hand-carved wooden blocks, a wax resist is applied to the fabric. When dyed, the wax areas remain white while the rest takes on the evocative hues of midnight, lapis lazuli, and cerulean that all begin with the tropical indigo plant. 100% cotton.

          The Mughal Empire dominated the Indian subcontinent in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The shahs spared no luxury, even when the court was on the move during a military campaign or hunting expedition. Printed cottons such as these would have made tent “walls” in the northern Indian desert. The print in this reversible cotton duvet, inspired by the intricate metalwork settings of Mughal jewelry, requires as many as 12 separate blocks to achieve the layers of color and pattern.

          This inviting bedding begins as lengths of crisp cotton fabric, laid smooth along a wooden table. Artisans take hand-carved wooden blocks, dip them in indigo-hued dye, and stamp the elaborate pattern one block at a time. It takes up to nine separate blocks to create the multi-layered design. Many of the artisans who work on these pieces own family farms and return to their village during planting and harvest seasons.

          Before the country's civil war in the mid-20th century, the Laotian city of Luang Prabang was home to the silversmiths who worked under the patronage of the royal family. After the war, most moved to the capital of Vientiane for safety, and it is there that these ornate accessories are handcrafted in an age-old tradition that begins with melting pure silver bullion into sheets and wires.

          In early 1968 the grisly on-the-job deaths of two African-American sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee, prompted an extended strike by that city's segregated force of trash collectors. Workers sought union protection, higher wages, improved safety, and the integration of their work force. Their work stoppage became a part of the larger civil rights movement and drew an impressive array of national movement leaders to Memphis, including, on more than one occasion, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
