This truly “heavenly” temple fragrance has all the characteristics of traditional frankincense, but with a layer of sweetness, and a bit less pungent (or medicinal) than the frankincense found in ancient times. The aroma is deep and arresting and very different from our Frankincense & Myrrh fragrance. We trust all who use this oil in prayer and intercession will experience the presence of God’s Holy Spirit, with a deeper understanding that your prayers ascend to His Throne as a sweet-smelling aroma.
In Temple times, a special HOLY INCENSE containing FRANKINCENSE was burned on the Altar of Incense morning and evening. In Scripture, incense is often associated with prayer. Sweet-smelling smoke from incense represented the people’s prayers ascending to God. Just as the incense carried a perfumed odor, our prayers are scented with the righteousness of our High Priest, Messiah our Savior. In Revelation5:8, John tells us the prayers of the saints ascend to the altar in heaven before the throne of God as a sweet smelling savor.
