Price: 500.000 VND

Myrrh is the gum from a shrub native to northeastern Africa and southwestern Asia. The shrub can grow to 30ft. (9m.) tall. Myrrh exudes from natural cracks or man-made incisions in the bark. It leaves the tree as a pale yellow liquid, which hardens into a yellowish-red or reddish-brown substance which is collected for use. This resin or gum has been used for thousands of years for its healing properties. In the Bible, myrrh is one of the gifts the wise men brought to the Christ child.



Myrrh reduces Kapha and Vátha, while increasing Pitta. Its antiseptic and antifungal properties recommend it for sore throats, swollen gums, and cold sores. Myrrh oil can be used directly on sore gums, or to make a gargle. A gargle: mix 1 teaspoon of myrrh and 1 teaspoon of boric acid in 1pt. (500ml.) of boiling water. Stand for 30 minutes, then strain. Reheat and gargle. Do not swallow. And 1 teaspoon of golden seal to cure bad breath.

BLENDS WELL WITH: Frankincense, Juniper, Cypress, Geranium, Aloe and Pine.
