Information about Commiphora Myrrha:
Myrrh is a resin or sap-like substance that comes from a tree called Commiphora myrrha, which is common in Africa and the Middle East. Myrrh is botanically related to frankincense and is one of the most widely used essential oils in the world.
Myrrh tree is characterized by its white flowers and knotted trunk. Sometimes the tree has very few leaves due to the dry desert conditions where it grows. It can sometimes take on a strange and twisted shape due to the harsh weather and wind.
To harvest myrrh, the tree trunks must be incised to release the resin. The resin is allowed to dry and begins to look like tears along the trunk of the tree. The resin is then collected and the essential oil is extracted from the sap by steam distillation.
Myrrh oil has a smoky, sweet or sometimes bitter smell. The word myrrh comes from the Arabic word "murr", which means bitter. The oil is a yellowish orange color with a viscous consistency. It is often used as a base for perfume and other fragrances.
The scent can also be used in incense blends to add an earthy element to the overall smell. It is also used in various perfumes, toothpastes, lotions and other modern toiletries. Myrrh was used as an embalming ointment and was used as incense in funerals and cremations until about the 15th century.
The "holy oil" traditionally used by the Orthodox Church for the sacraments is traditionally scented with myrrh, and receiving one of these sacraments is commonly referred to as "receiving the myrrh". In Chinese medicine, myrrh is classified as bitter, spicy, neutral in temperature, and affects the heart, liver, and spleen meridians.
Its use is similar to that of frankincense, with which it is often combined in decoctions, liniments and incense. Myrrh has also been used in the treatment of amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, menopause, and uterine tumors, as its "blood moving" properties can remove stagnant blood from the uterus. Myrrh has also been recommended to help toothache and can be used in liniment for bruises, aches and sprains.
