  • Materials: Commiphora Kua, Scented Myrrh, Perfumed Myrrh, Kua Myrrh

A rare member of the Myrrh family from the Island of Socotra, Yemen, home of Medieval Dragons Blood and other unique indigenous aromatics.
Used locally as medicine and incense. C. Kua is also used to perfume clothing and body, and rightfully bears the name of scented/sweet and perfumed Myrrh.

When burned as an incense on the coal, Kua Myrrh exhibits an aromatic profile that is quite different from its sisters, Myrrh, Opoponax, C. holziana, Kataf and Erythaea and adds an unusual twist to compound incenses.

Akin to a complex perfume, the aroma of smouldering C. Kua is musky, sweet, sultry, seductive and deep. To me, it is reminiscent of catching a sensuous intimate whiff of a stranger. Its scent, when burned is complex, layered with information and sexy as heck. After burning it, my partner mentioned how good I smelled with a twinkle in her eye.
I would consider it an aphrodisiac.

One stands above the lighted censor while C. Kua is burning and allows the smoke to caress the clothing and body to create a personal perfume that lasts all day. Articles of clothing such as scarves, shirts and Burkas can be suspended above the censor and impregnated with the unique perfume of C. Kua.
One must remember that the word "Perfume" is derived from the words par/per and Fume which means "From or through smoke". This is indeed the original perfume method used for thousands of years in many cultures.

Only a small amount of resin is needed to perfume a room. A piece the size of a lentil will suffice and a 1-ounce bag yields many such jewels.

Commiphora Kua is ruled Astrologically by the Moon as are its sisters C. Myrrha and C. Erythrea. In traditional Socotran folk medicine, OC. Kua is used to treat stomach upset and cramps. Based on the deep and mysterious effects of this resin, I would conclude it is ruled by the Moon and the sign of Scorpio.

A radient beauty is this prize myrrh. Put a little flashlight under one of these transluscent tears to see glow. Uniquely individual aromas on coal, or on burner. My first bag is going too fast but another is on the way thanks to the garden. Fresh.

Words can’t describe how beautiful this is. I want to bathe in it! It’s warmer ...sexy even? I know one small pebble scented my apartment. If I was working hard and came home to this I would feel so much better it smells that good! Glad I was able to get some before it sold out.
