Festive Favourites No2: Kings & Queens Caspar Myrrh Shower Gel

You can see why in ancient times Myrrh was as valuable as gold. It has a warm, rich, resinous smell which I love all year round (I make my own incense and often include some of it in my blends).

Like many ancient ingredients myrrh has a wonderfully rich heritage. It was used by the egyptians as part of the mummification process, has been used as a ritual incense since Biblical times and has numerous medicinal uses.

This great showergel, by Kings & Queens, utilizes myrrh to give it a rich, warming aroma but it also also contains pomegranate, malachite and blue lotus and has a slightly spicy, fruity smell too. It’s absolutely perfect for this time of year and at a fiver is that rarest of things – a bargain that’s still fit for a king.

Available from nivenandjoshua.com priced £5 for 300ml
