Myrrh

Myrrh is a resin produced by a small, spikey, knotted, stunted shrub from the commiphora family found in the Middle East and Northern Africa. The oil is steam distilled from an oleoresin exuding from the stems and shoots of the bushes. The trees belong to the same family as Frankincense. Myrrh is used in incense and perfume and has a strong balsamic aroma. It is highly valued as a healing ointment for wounds and is great for skin problems, scars, infections and ulcerations. It was well known to the ancients. It was prescribed by the Egyptians to be used against hay-fever and also for embalming. It is mentioned numerous times in the bible and thusly has a lot of religious connotations. It was given to prisoners before execution to numb mental suffering. It was a very popular ingredient in French medicine during the 17th century against coughs, birth, hernias and for treating skin diseases. It can apparently be mixed with sage and used as an antiseptic against rotten teeth!

Why Tabitha includes it

Myrrh is very soothing for the scalp and helps protect against infection. It has a warm therapeutic scent and it is a natural preservative.
