Pure Planet Myrrh 200g
Myrrh is most commonly known as one of the gifts (along with gold and frankincense) the three wise men brought to Jesus in the New Testament. In fact, it was actually mentioned in the Bible 152 times because it was an important spice, natural remedy and used at that time to purify the dead.
Modern day researchers have become interested in Myrrh due to its potent antioxidant activity and potential as a cancer treatment. It has also been shown to be effective in targeting certain types of parasitic infections.
Myrrh is a resin, or sap-like substance, that comes from the Commiphora myrrha tree, common in Africa and the Middle East. It is one of the most widely used essential oils in the world.
Two primary active compounds that have been found in Myrrh are terpenoids and sesquiterpenes, both of which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect. Sesquiterpenes specifically also have an effect on our emotional center in the hypothalamus, helping us remain calm and balanced.
This beautiful smelling resin, handpicked from Egypt and sourced from an ethical and fair source, can be burnt over a charcoal disc, to create a spiritual aroma and ambience in the home and is great to burn at times of deep reflection and meditation.
