Myrrh has been used since ancient times as an ingredient in incense and perfumes and has been found in ancient Egypt as part of the embalming process. Biblical scholars and theologians have offered different interpretations of the meaning and significance of the gold, frankincense and myrrh that the 3 magi presented to Jesus. It is widely believed these valuable items were standard gifts to honor a king or deity in the ancient world: gold as a precious metal, frankincense as perfume or incense, and myrrh as anointing oil.
Myrrh has a rich, smoky, balsamic aroma that is purifying, restorative, revitalizing, and uplifting. It is a helpful aid to meditation, having one of the highest levels of sesquiterpenes available. Sesquiterpenes are a class of compounds that have a direct effect on the hypothalamus, pituitary, and amygdala, the seat of our emotions. Myrrh is referenced throughout the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. The Arabian people believed it helped wrinkled, chapped, and cracked skin. Today, myrrh is widely used in oral hygiene products
As you can see, there are good reasons why Myrrh is still an important and valuable ingredient in any natural home.
