Myrrh is a natural gum that is harvested from the sapwood of a tree native to Ethiopia, Somalia and Yemen. This resinous material is syrupy when it first runs from the cut wood, but it quickly hardens into “tears” when exposed to air. Once collected, the resin is aged for several weeks before going to market.
Myrrh gum has a long history of use in the Mediterranean region as fragrance and spice.
Powdered myrrh is traditionally burned over charcoal as incense. It is also an ingredient in herbal tooth powders. Myrrh powder is also found in many commercially prepared mouth washes and topical liniments and salves.
