Description

Fresh Myrrh oleoresin. Commiphora Myrrha, Ogaden region Ethiopia. For perfume, Medicine and Incense.

There are fewer fair trade concerns with resins from Ethiopia compared to those from other countries since the Ethiopian government regulates the resin prices so collectors get a fair share, and they have been working for decades to address issues of sustainability in the resin trade there. They have set up programs to educate harvesters in sustainable methods of tapping and nurseries to supply young trees to resin harvesting areas. To the best of my knowledge, the tree’s biggest threats in Ethiopia are agricultural encroachment, use for charcoal and the insects and pathogens that are their natural enemies.

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. Literally.
.

One of the most precious commodities in the ancient world, this aromatic oleoresin still keeps its value as a component in perfumes and incense, while medicinally, it is 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 essential oil, in alcohol/water, added to a saline mouth rinse is one of the best treatments for oral issues and sore throats.

It is a powerful anti-fungal and has been used successfully to treat fungal infections of the skin and nails. Myrrh contains 2 compounds that are analgesic and can help reduce pain. One customer who suffers from allergies to painkillers, shared recently that she places a small lump between cheek and aching tooth. She claims it offers her relief in about 5 minutes.

Internally it is a natural “Bitter”, stimulating digestion, appetite and the production of bile. Topically in a salve or creme, Myrrh has been used for coughs, colds and congestion, cuts and abrasions and haemorrhoids.

The name Myrrh is rooted in The Aramaic word for bitter. Mar, Mor. It lives up to its name with a wonderfully rich, sweet, stimulating bitterness. Some associate this with the names Mary, Miriam, Mariam, and believe it to mean the bitter of the sea, the froth of the sea? (Sometimes associated with the Goddess Astarte, Ashtoreth). Either way, Myrrh is considered to be of a feminine nature, which is appropriate since Myrrh is ruled astrologically by the Moon and has an affinity with the fluid systems of our body. ( Frankincense is ruled by the Sun). It is interesting to note that it has also been used to regulate menstrual flow.

This Myrrh is available in bulk wholesale quantities. Please contact me here regarding pricing.

To prepare a simple mouthwash for sore inflamed or irritated gums, one can place a half teaspoon of Myrrh, 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. A quarter teaspoon of sea salt can be added to this mix as well.

For instructions on making your own tincture of Myrrh for oral care, please see my post, http://apothecarysgarden.com/2014/12/29/preparing-winter-medicine-with-tree-saps/

    I chewed some of this myrrh when I had tooth and gum pain and while it took a few hours to work (and it's SO BITTER), the pain went away and did not return. No side effects. Seriously impressed.

    I have yet to use these but they are very nice and I am excited to. My only complaint is that it came pretty dusty and not solid. IDK if this was a mail carrier issue or if it was the last of whatever was left to sell.

    What I like most about this is that, as long as you have some way to break the big chunks (and they're all big chunks) of myrrh into smaller pieces, it's a great way to keep good quality myrrh on-hand without spending much money.

    Everything I ordered from Dan has been incredible compared to other sellers. When there was a mixup on shipping, not only did Dan personally fix it, he put a few generous extras in my shipment to make up for it. Will only order from Dan from now on.
