Myrrh Resin or Commiphora Myrrha


Myrrh is one of the most popular resins in the world. It originates from Arabia and the Horn of Africa (Somalia, Yemen, Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan, etc.).


In addition to its use as a fumigant, it has been widely used in pharmacy (antiseptic properties, for example) and in perfumery since the dawn of time.


According to Christian tradition, it is also the resin that was offered, along with incense and gold, by the Three Wise Men to the infant Jesus (more precisely by Balthazar, Gaspard offering the incense and Melchior the gold).


When fumigated, it has a pleasant, warm, resinous smell, but with vaguely "rubbery" notes. Myrrh blends well with olibanum and many other resins.
