To quote a famous Monty Python line, “What is Myrrh, anyway?” Well, as the wise men replied at the beginning of “Life of Brian”, it’s a balm. Not a bomb, of course, but a balm, as the joke went. What does this mean, exactly? Well, most balms are meant to soothe aches, pains, and even minor wounds.

This indicates the possible possession of antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Reducing the risk of infection and cutting down on inflammation are the two main ways in which medicines treat pain, wounds and speed up the healing process. Myrrh has been well known to do both.*

Like Frankincense, Myrrh is a tree resin from various Commiphora species of trees from the Middle East and Africa. Myrrh and Frankincense tend to grow together in many places, and have also been used together across the millennia, and are commonly prescribed together today in China for various purposes. 

Myrrh, like Frankincense and Cannabis, contain terpenoid compounds that provide not only the scent and aroma of the resin when used as an essential oil or burned as incense, but are also potentially medicinal. Compounds such as furanocudesma-1,3-diene and curzerene have been shown in studies to possess extremely mild and safe effects on the opioid receptor system, as well as the antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effects found in the other resins. *
