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.
