Myrrh is a reddish brown gum or resin that is extracted from small thorny trees. It is harvested by repeatedly wounding the trees to bleed the gum / resin. Myrrh has an earthy, woody, sweet aroma. Historically Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh were given to the baby Jesus by the Magi. The Ancient Egyptians used it as a part of mummification. Ancient Greek soldiers took it into battle to stop wounds from bleeding & Ancient Roman physicians used Myrrh to treat wounds & prescribed it to be taken internally for digestive problems.
Properties / uses : Antimicrobial, antiviral, astringent, anti-inflammatory, anticatarrhal, antioxidant. Myrrh may be used for bruises, aches, sprains, abrasions & other minor skin ailments, sinus, colds, cough, asthma, lung congestion, tonsillitis, mouth ulcers, gingivitis, fungal infections, wounds, boils & pressure sores. Ancient Egyptians knew what they were doing when they embalmed their dead bodies using Myrrh – the antibacterial powers of this resin helped to slow decay by killing bacteria and other microbes.
Spiritually/ energetically - Myrrh can help with grounding us whilst calming fraught emotions. It can assist with clearing away negative energy & illusions that may stand in the way of us seeing the truth. Myrrh is often used to help heal grief & personal sorrow.
