Myrrh Resin Definition and Myrrh Resin Products


Many ancient cultures referred to myrrh as the fragrance or sensuousness of the earth. The myrrh tree grows on rocky hillsides in barren and dry locations. The tree can grow up to 10m in height and has gnarled, sparsely covered branches. Each year a myrrh tree produces about 9lb/4kg of resin.

Myrrh resin is dark brown in colour, a bit like caramel, and when burnt it produces an earthy, almost pine-like scent. It's well known for its grounding and calming properties. It's great, for example, to burn if you feel like you need to get your feet solidly back on the ground or need to remain firmly grounded whilst providing healing for others. It's also believed to have sensuous properties, and was often burnt along with other substances, such as benzoin, aloe and sandalwood, as a way of enhancing this.

Along with frankincense, myrrh was commonly mentioned in the Bible and it was one of the gifts taken by the three kings to the baby Jesus. It is regarded as a feminine scent (in contrast, frankincense is regarded as masculine). The Egyptians were also wide users of myrrh, particularly for embalming and rituals of healing and passing.
