This particular Myrrh is from Yemen, the land famous for it's best in class Myrrh in the world. Myrrh is a gum-resin, which is extracted from the bark of the balsam tree called "Myrrh Tree". It is an anti-bacterial and very powerful analgesic.
The story goes that myrrh was one of the gifts given to baby Jesus from the wise men (along with Frankincense and Gold). The myth shows just how significant this tree resin truly is. It was also used during the mummification process as an embalming substance. The ancient Egyptian also used myrrh for healing, as well as spiritual rituals.
Both frankincense and myrrh are derived from the gummy sap that oozes out of the Boswellia and Commiphora trees, respectively, when their bark is cut. The leaking resin is allowed to harden and scraped off the trunk in tear-shaped droplets; it may then be used in its dried form or steamed to yield essential oils. They are also extremely fragrant, particularly when burned, with frankincense giving off a sweet, citrusy scent and myrrh producing a piney, bitter odor.
Myrrh has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine. Scientists are now testing the oil’s potential uses, including for pain, infections, and skin sores
