Have you ever wondered why Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh were considered gifts precious enough for a King? Many have given their interpretations of the meaning and significance of these three gifts, but we want to give you an Herbie’s perspective:
- Gold – For buying the herbs, of course! Ho, ho, ho!
- Frankincense – Supports the limbic system of the brain (emotional center), as well as the hormones. It also helps the body deal with inflammation.
- Myrrh – Stimulates the body to help get rid of mucus. It helps support the immune system and promotes healthy oral hygiene (aka “the herbal breath freshener”). The powdered herb has also been used on umbilical cords after birth.
As you give gifts to your loved ones this year, remember the first three gifts of Christmas!
