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.
