Morning Star Myrrh Japanese Incense - dark notes of sweet spices
Sweet and Spicy notes make up the warm, inviting fragrance of Myrrh. New in 2016 along with Frankincense
In common with Frankincense, Myrrh is harvested from a tree (Commiphora molmol) and is a resin which coagulates and dries into hard ‘tears’ after the bark has been cut. Myrrh is produced in many middle-eastern countries including S. Arabia, Oman, Yemen, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Somalia. It’s use has been synonymous through the region for thousands of years as an incense ingredient, a perfume, for medical purposes and for use in embalming.
Another well-known link to the region is Myrrh (like Frankincense) appearing in the Christian Christmas Story (the birth of Jesus). Myrrh as the gift brought by the wise man/King called Balthazar, the King of Tarse and Egypt.
