myrrh oilSouthern Arabian Peninsula and the Northeast Africa (Somalia, Ethiopia, and Yemen) are the home for a tropical tree of Burseraceae family, with knotted branches, aromatic leaves, and white flowers. This is Commiphora myrrha or myrrh tree, which grows up to 3 meters. The resin of myrrh is naturally found in the cracks of the tree or small incisions made in the bark of the tree. According to the legend, goats used to rub against the trees and the shepherds who tended them collected the resin which had stuck to the goats' hair; today, the collection of the resin is from man made cuts in the tree or by cultivation of trees. That's why myrrh essential oil has specific scent - smoky and resinous.

Myrrh has been used since ancient times in incense, perfumes, and holy ointments. The Egyptians used myrrh in embalming compounds and burned pellets of myrrh to repel fleas. Archeological evidence indicates that myrrh was carried in small pouches that wealthy persons hung around the neck for fragrance. Egyptian women included myrrh in their skin care preparations such as facial masks and body ointments, while the Arabs used myrrh to treat skin conditions such as wrinkles and cracked skin.

It was said that the Roman Emperor Nero burned a year's worth of myrrh at the funeral of his wife, Poppaea. The Romans were also known to use myrrh as a premier additive to wine.

Myrrh has a number of biblical references, indicating its use at that time, for example, it was one of the gifts the three Magi brought to honor the baby Jesus.

The herb was traditionally mixed with wine and offered to prisoners prior to execution to ease pain.

Myrrh was a highly valued commodity for commerce on ancient spice routes, and is woven into legend and myth. In Syrian legend the myrrh tree is named for the daughter of Thesis, a Syrian king. She was transformed by the gods into a myrrh tree to escape her father's murderous wrath.
