Myrrh: A biblical incense
The Egyptians used myrrh to embalm dead bodies, but it has also been used as a remedy for over 3,000 years. The three holy kings brought aside from gold and incense also myrrh as a gift for the Jesus-child - which emphasizes its great value! Since myrrh has a warm, slightly spicy-sweet scent, which characterizes it as a fragrance, myrrh was also commonly used for the production of perfumes. "Myrrh" derives from the Arabic word "Murr" ("very bitter") and belongs the family of the Burseraceae. Myrrh is the resin of the myrrh tree, which can grow over three meters tall and native to Africa and Arabia. Myrrh discharges when the bark is damaged and solidifies. This plant needs small amounts of water and a lot of sunlight. The essential oils contained in the myrrh have a disinfecting effect and can, for example, be effective as an anti-inflammatory agent for tooth or gum pain. For this purpose a tincture is made from myrrh, in order to rinse out the mouth (with lukewarm water). But be careful, because the resin stimulates appetite at the same time! Incense Myrrh develops a warm, mild and spicy scent, but at the same time it also refreshes and cleans the surrounding air.
