My Caring Cross Product Review (Tomoson)

I reviewed Single Olive Wood Caring/ Holding Cross with Bag (Gift Kit), in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. This post contains Amazon affiliate links.

The History of the Cross:

The Caring Cross website says the olive tree was discussed in both the old and new testament. The site provided the following bible verses as references. 

And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth. Genesis 8:11

His branches shall spread and his beauty shall be as the olive tree. Hosea 14: 6

The dove brought an olive branch to Noah after the Flood. Olives also provides a source of oil (lamp and anointing . Olive trees also provide material for building. I found the following verses on Bible Gateway, during a search for Olives.

I found the following verses on Biblegatewayduring a search for Olives.

  1. Exodus 25:6 NIV Olive oil for the light; spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense. 
  2. Exodus 29:2 NIV And from the finest wheat flour make round loaves without yeast, think loaves without yeast and with olive oil mixed in, and thin leaves without yeast and brushed with olive oil. 
  3. Leviticus 2:1 When anyone brings a grain offering to the Lord, their offering is to be of the finest flour. They are to pour olive oil on it, put incense on it.

The cross is very smooth and easy to hold. The edges are rounded, instead of square. The product is also fair trade. The craftsmen receives a fair price to support their families and communities.

The cross is small and fits within the palm of your hand for prayer, comfort, meditation, and reflection.

The Facebook Fan Page has images, which provide how the cross is created. The craftsmen cut the logs from the Olive trees and remove the limbs. The craftsmen then trace the crosses outline into the wood. Next, the outline is cut out. Finally, the edges are smoothed and the cross is sanded.

The cross will be a perfect gift for yourself or a loved one. You also can use the crosses for fundraising at your church. Amazon, Ebay, and My Caring Cross offers packages from 1 cross to 100 crosses.

The crosses can be purchased on Amazon, Ebay or MyCaringCross. The cross on My Caring Cross is $4.00. You can save 10% using code OCTCROSS. The code expires October 31, 2013.

The cross on Amazon costs $7.98 and is not prime eligible. I received my cross within a few days.

Each Cross also comes with a red carrying case and a note of encouragement.
