Botanical Name: Commiphora myrrha
Origin: Ogaden, Ethiopia
Commiphora myrrha, Myrrh resin, is wild harvested from a tribal co-op in Ogedan located in Ethiopia's Eastern Somali region. We happily and proudly support this co-op of resin collectors who go out daily searching for the very best resin so that it can be brought forth for our enjoyment and holistic medicinal benefits.
This freshly harvested Myrrh resin has a rich, smokey, earthy aroma associated with high quality Myrrh resin. Unlike other resins a much denser release of smoke is released when burning Myrrh resin. This may be off-putting to some but through the release of its antibacterial concentrated compounds its thicker smoke serves to purify air. If air purification is not your purpose, this Ethiopian Myrrh resin is abundant with homeopathic uses when ground into a powder for oral health care and skin care use.
Please note we package resins by weight, not container size. Resin pieces vary in size from pea to thumbnail. We do not sort according to size and therefore package a mixture of sizes. Due to the irregular natural sizes and shapes of resin the specific weight purchased may not completely fill our container used in packaging. The upside to our packaging is that your resin will arrive in a sealed reusable container that provides proper storage.
