Myrrh Resin 1/3 oz

Myrrh gum is the sap-like resin produced by a thorny shrub in the Commiphora genus, which includes frankincense. When the bark of the tree is cut, the resin escapes in “tears” or small beads, which harden quickly and become glossy and amber-colored with age.

Dried myrrh gum is highly fragrant and is used alone or in blends with other materials to create quality incense.

Though frankincense and myrrh tend to bring up certain religious connotations to the western mind, they have been in active use as magical incenses, religious tools, and for their healing properties since at least 1500bc. Resin incenses are the top of the line in incense burning. Using incense charcoal as a base you can release the intense fragrance of these fine resin granules -- without the dilution or alteration of scent caused by a burning base or fixatives typical in man-made stick or cone incense. Frankincense is one of the most valuable substances of history, used for meditation, protection, purification, and consecration by countless cultures.
