Myrrh is indigenous to eastern Mediterranean countries; it comes from a deciduous, bushy tree that grows to fifteen feet. It produces yellow-red flowers and pointed fruit. The Myrrh is the pale, yellow, resin that is excreted into cavities in the bark when it’s wounded. It’s harvested from June to August and then dried for many uses. Myrrh has been regarded as a treasure in the East for thousands of years. In ancient times, it was often burned as an incense.
