Myrrh has held a strong place in histories around the world as a ceremonial incense resin for over 5,000 years. It is mentioned in many ancient texts, including the Bible and the Torah, for its ability to connect to the Divine. Myrrh is widely used to heighten the senses and promote a sharper sense of awareness. It is warm, spicy, balsamic, and slightly viscous in aroma. Myrrh is traditionally used in prayer, offerings, as a meditative aid, for energetic protection, cleansing and purification, clearing the mind, as a medicine, and much more.
Many of the ecological practices, economic impacts, and cultural traditions surrounding the cultivation of certain Myrrh species are in danger. Therefore it is important to support the eco-friendly, sustainable trade of this powerful and symbolic ancient incense resin.
Our Myrrh resin is sustainably harvested and ethically sourced directly from tribal co-operative members in Somalia. These particular wild harvesters are trained in how to caretake the trees and even expand their populations.
To burn, sprinkle granules onto hot incense charcoal on a non-flammable burning surface (use our 100% Natural Incense Charcoal)
