Description

Myrrh is a resin that is from a small spiny tree which grows in regions of Libya, Iran, close to the Red Sea and parts of Northeast Africa, particularly areas that are semi-desert in nature. These trees are belonging to the same botanical family as that of Frankincense. The name myrrh comes from the arabic word 'murr' which means bitter.

The resin in liquid form is exuded from natural cracks or cuts in the trunk and when exposed to the outside of the tree, it sets and forms odd shaped brownish-red lumps. Modern day harvesting includes systemic cuts in wild trees and from those that are cultivated. Essential oil is extracted from the resin by steam distillation, though most of the myrrh available for use in aromatherapy is a resinoid, extracted from the resin through a process using solvents. The essential oil can be pale to dark amber in appearance of colour.

Aroma is that of a hot, smoky, bitter nature. Myrrh was used in most ancient civilisations as a perfume, incense and for medicinal purposes. Used as a healing ointment for wounds and cuts and it was believed that no soldier of ancient Grecian times went to battle without carrying a paste of myrrh to be used in the event of injury.

Used for use on wounds that are slow to heal, athlete's foot, weeping eczema conditions and for healing of cracked skin. Considered to be beneficial in treating chest infections, catarrh, chronic bronchitis, colds and sore throats, digestive problems and thrush. ?
