Myrrh is a resin that comes from trees belonging to the genus Commiphora – which grow in Northern Africa and the Middle East.
The sap-like substance, which has a unique sweet and smoky aroma, has a wide range of uses.
Myrrh is mainly used:

- for embalming
- to flavor food products

The essential oil has been part of medical practice in traditional therapies for millennia.
The word myrrh comes from the Arabic word “murr” which translates into “bitter”.
In Ancient Egypt, myrrh was used to treat hay fever and herpes. The ancient Greeks used it as an antiseptic for soldiers to clean up battle wounds – myrrh was commonly carried into the battlefield.
Myrrh is mentioned in the New Testament as one of the three gifts the three wise men brought to Jesus when he was born (Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh).
