With its smoky, earthy scent, myrrh has a long history as a favorite among all cultures going back to its first discovery in the far reaches of time. A native to Ethiopia and Somalia, it has been used as long ago as 3000 BCE by the Egyptians in embalming, and as an incense burned during cremations and funerals to disguise any foul odors up through the 15th century. Myrrh is said to be one of the key ingredients in the mythical Egyptian perfume Kyphi. It has also been used to anoint kings and scent fabrics for those traveling to holy places. Myrrh has had a great value throughout time; the Romans even valued it as much as gold, using it as security for monetary debts.
Myrrh is generally used as a tincture, rarely tea or encapsulation, included in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese herbal mixtures. Great antiseptic. Makes excellent incense and is burnable. It is also used in conjunction with other ingredients for the development of many cosmetic applications.
NOTE: Avoid use when you have “red” symptoms, for example, fever, blistering, hot flashes, or nervous tension. Its use is not recommended while pregnant and it may cause nausea or vomiting in excess.
Myrrh is ruled by The Moon and Water. This is an excellent balancing herb and is often used with Frankincense for that very reason. Myrrh works well for all types of healing magick and for increasing spirituality. Also works well in protection blends, especially when paired with Frankincense or Rosemary.
