Myrrh and its cousin frankincense are known to Americans today, if at all, through the Biblical account of the wise men 😁 In the Book of Matthew, it’s said that three Magi followed the Star of Bethlehem to the birth of Jesus, and gave to him three gifts: gold, frankincense, and myrrh 🤓 Douglas Daly of the New York Botanical Garden, who is an expert in myrrh/frankincense, claims that these substances are richer than what can be found in a single Bible story. And, despite millennia of use and study, they’re still yielding new insights to this day.

According to Matthew 2:11. These items were used to honourr a deity or king in ancient times. They included gold, frankincense and myrrh. These three items are actually amongst the gift that King Seleucus II had Callinicus given to Apollo in the Miletus temple, 243 B.C.E. The Book of Isaiah, when describing Jerusalem’s glorious restoration, tells of nations and kings who will come and “bring gold and frankincense and shall proclaim the praise of the Lord” (Isaiah 60:6). Although Matthew’s gospel does not include the names or number of the magi, many believe that the number of the gifts is what led to the tradition of the Three Wise Men.
