King’s Garments – Glory of the King

In Ps 45:8 the Bible portrays a king whose garments are so thoroughly scented with costly perfumes that they seem to be altogether woven out of them. Two of the three scents mentioned, Myrrh and Cassia, were ingredients in the holy anointing oil used to anoint priests and kings. The remaining fragrance, Aloes, is listed among the “chief species” in the garden of the beloved in Song 4:13-14.

King's Garments is a special aromatic blending of the three biblical scents consisting of:

Myrrh: A gum resin that exudes from a small bushy tree found in Arabia. It flows as milky white then quickly turns to  a deep purple-brown color as it begins to crystalize.

Aloes: Most likely the product of a tree of the genus Aquilaria, a native of northern India. At a certain stage of decay, the wood develops a fragrance well known to the ancients and from it a rare perfume was obtained.

Cassia: An evergreen tree in the cinnamon family with an aromatic bark, which is harvested in strips to make an aromatic powder or oil.
