Latin (botanical) name: Commiphora Myrrha

 

Common names: Gum Myrrh Tree

 

Plant Description: Myrrh trees grow on arid, rocky hills of the deserts of Arabia, Ethiopia, and Somalia. They are virtually non-destructible and can survive under the harsh conditions of the desert. The trees themselves grow to no more than 9 feet in height, but they are extremely sturdy. They have trifoliate leaves, although few at best, that are small and oval. Myrrh trees produce a fragrant, pale yellow to brown resin that seeps out of splits in the bark and hardens into reddish-brown globules called 'tears', about the size of a walnut. For thousands of years, these tears have been collected and placed over coals to produce a fragrant smoke. The surface of the gum is rough and powdered, the pieces brittle, semi-transparent, and oily. They have a granular fracture and sometimes show white marks. The odor is pleasant, but the taste is bitter and acrid.

 

Use: 30-60 drops in water or juice, 2-3 times daily or as needed. Shake well before using.

 

Cautions & Interactions: Do not take during pregnancy. Keep out of reach of children.
