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.

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. It can also be used to nurture wisdom & help us to connect with spirit & maintain a state of enlightenment. Both historically & to this day, Myrrh is still used in incense formulas to “smudge” or cleanse. 

To burn resin/incense/herb, place a charcoal tablet onto a heat proof surface and light with a match. When lit, place a small quantity of incense onto the block and allow the aromatic scent to pervade the room, adding more if required according to personal preference.  Be careful to use tongs as charcoal tablet is hot!

Alternatively place resin/incense/herb in the top of an oil burner (I put foil in the top first as the resin sticks and is hard to clean) and light a candle underneath to warm and then disperse the aromatic scent.


We do not recommend these resins or herbs as a replacement for traditional medicine.
