This resin is a sap-like substance that comes out of cuts in the bark of trees from the Commiphora species. This is a tree with no leaves for half of the year and produces the Myrrh. Around 448 tons of Myrrh was first harvested in the first century in the Arabian Peninsula. It was popular in trade for its medicinal properties and has been used for centuries as an incense. Used in the treatment of indigestion, ulcers, colds, coughs, asthma, lung congestions, arthritis pain, cancer, leprosy, muscle spasms, syphilis as well as a stimulant and to increase the menstrual flow. It is an astringent, antiseptic, antiparasitic, antitussive, emmenagogue, and antispasmodic agent.
The resin can be applied directly in the mouth for swelling, inflamed gums, loose teeth, bad breath and even chapped lips. MYRRH is an antiseptic with anti-inflammatory properties and kills bacteria. It is used as a flavouring ingredient in food and beverages, as well as a fragrance in incense sticks. MYRRH has played a key role in the religious ceremonies of the ancient Egyptians and other cultures.
