Myrrh, also known as Commiphora, is one of the most highly valued substances since ancient times. One of the gifts that the Three Wise Men presented to the baby Jesus, myrrh is commonly used by Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists for religious rituals and ceremonies.
It can be burned to purify negative energies and invoke the Protector's presence when entering new places. When heated, the highly aromatic resin releases a woody, warm, pungent, and slightly medicinal fragrance. The uplifting scent is said to promote awareness, balance and calmness, making it highly suitable for meditation, visualisation and yoga.
Myrrh is also highly prized for its antiseptic, analgesic, sedative, immune-boosting and rejuvenative properties, and has been used since ancient times in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.
