  • Materials: Fresh Harvested Myrrh Oleoresin, Co op harvested resins, Commiphora Myrrha

This listing is for a very special kind of Myrrh resin called "Suhul Myrrh"-It is sweeter than other types of Myrrh, beautifully Fragrant-Fresh & Sustainably harvested.

After the rainy season has ended, when the resin harvesters go visit the Myrrh trees to tap them, they collect the resin that the tree has already produced on its own. This is "Suhul" Myrrh-It is a gift from the Myrrh tree.

The word "Suhul", has its roots in " Sahl" which means "Given freely" as opposed to the type of Myrrh that is collected after tapping the tree which is named "Sarac" Myrrh. It is the simple difference between something that is given and something that is taken.

Suhul Myrrh is usually lighter, brighter and more translucent than the Sarac, or tapped Myrrh and often sweeter smelling. This batch fits the description perfectly. It is wonderfully complex aromatically,
sweeter and sticky-moist in its freshness.

It only comes around once in a while so get it while it is here.

Along with Frankincense, Myrrh is probably one of the most well-known natural oleoresins in the world. Famous for its use since biblical times as medicine, fragrance and incense, Myrrh has long been valued for its many medicinal applications and has been at times, worth its weight in gold.

A precious commodity in the ancient world, this powerful oleoresin has kept its value as a component in perfumes and incense, while medicinally, it is still unsurpassed as a “heal-all” for oral care, effectively addressing issues such as inflamed sore or infected gums, post-extraction soreness or denture irritation, spongy gums, canker sores, halitosis, gingivitis, and loose teeth. A simple tincture of the raw oleoresin, or the essential oil in alcohol/water, added to a mouthwash of warm salted water is one of the best treatments for most all oral issues and sore throats.

Myrrh is an anti-fungal and has been used successfully to treat candida, thrush, (and oral thrush), as well as fungal infections of the skin and nails.

Myrrh contains 2 compounds that are analgesic and help relieve pain.

It performs admirably in cremes and salves for dry, cracked and fissured heels and is considered skin healing and rejuvenating.

Internally, Myrrh is traditionally used as a “Bitter”, stimulating digestion, appetite and the production of bile and treating diarrhea.

Topically, in a salve or creme, Myrrh has been used for coughs, colds and congestion, cuts and abrasions, piles and hemorrhoids.

The name Myrrh is rooted in The Aramaic word for bitter. Mar, Mor. It lives up to its name with a wonderfully rich, stimulating bitterness. Some associate this with the names Mary, (Mar-Yam), Miriam, Mariam, and believe it to mean the bitter of the sea, the froth of the sea.
The name of the Goddess Aphrodite translates to "risen from the froth of the sea".

Myrrh is ruled Astrologically by the Moon and the sign of Cancer, considered to be of feminine in nature, and has an affinity with water, ebb and flow and especially the fluid systems of our body where it helps to regulate and rebalance the digestive tract, oral cavity, and women's menses. ( Frankincense is ruled by the Sun).

In Some Somali Harvesting communities, Myrrh is harvested exclusively by the women of the clan. Frankincense which requires stripping and tapping of the tree is managed and harvested only by the men.

For a simple mouthwash for sore inflamed or irritated gums, one can place a half teaspoon of Myrrh resin crushed or ground in a cup, add boiling water and let sit till cool. It can then be swished in the mouth, or gargled repeatedly during the day. (It is bitter!) A quarter teaspoon of sea salt can be added to this mix as well.

The quality of this myrrh is out of this world. As soon as I received this order and took a whiff, I RAN to the computer to order the 2 pound bag. I had read that the naturally flowing resin of myrrh is the most healing and medicinal. And then, it appeared in here and I had to try it. While I haven't made anything with it yet, I can tell just by the smell that it will be amazing. Normally, myrrh is a bit bitter, but there is a sweet undertone to this that is just intoxicating. This is my 3rd order from this shop, and you can be assured that absolutely everything in here is top quality. I do not consider myself an expert, but I have bought from a few places and nothing approaches what I have bought from here. It is clear from the scent, the appearance, and the feel, that every resin I have purchased is of the highest quality.

I'm in the odd position of "starting over", when it comes to my resins, medical derivatives and incenses. I'm so *very* happy to have found this shop through a friend. Package arrived in a flash, and it is all very high quality; I can hardly wait to get moving again. :) Thank you so much.
