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.
One of the most precious commodities 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 essential oil, in alcohol/water, added to a mouthwash of warm water and 1/4 teaspoon salt is one of the best treatments for most all oral issues and sore throats.
The name Myrrh is rooted in The Aramaic word for bitter. Mar, Mor. It lives up to its name with a wonderfully rich, stimulating, and palatable bitterness. Some associate this with the names Mary (Mar-Yam), Miriam, and Mariam, and believe it to mean the bitter of the sea, froth of the sea. Also, the name of the Goddess Aphrodite is said to mean "risen from the froth of the sea".
Myrrh is ruled Astrologically by the Moon and the sign of Cancer, considered to be feminine in nature, and has an affinity with water, ebb and flow and especially the fluid systems of our body where it helps 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 is managed and performed only by men.
Myrrh is a traditional and indispensable ingredient in many tooth powders. My favourite is From Herbalist Rosalee de la Foret and consists of 1 tablespoon powdered Myrrh, 2 Tablespoons Cinnamon powder and 2 teaspoons Licorice root powder. 1 Tablespoon Myrrh powder is about 10 Grams or 1/3 of an ounce.

This is a collection of aromatic materials mentioned in the Old & New Testaments and in ancient Egyptian texts. I often get asked to translate biblical plant names and source the materials they mention. They are all here in this collection.
