Myrrh is a reddish-brown resinous material, the dried sap of the myrrha tree.

Myrrh is a valuable resin produced by Commiphorra myrrha tree. Myrrh like all tree resin is actually hardened sap. The sap is secreted by the Commiphorra myrrha tree when its bark has been removed or penetrated. The sap leaks out of the damaged spots on the tree and hardens into oblong shapes generally referred to as tears.

Myrrh resin has been used in religious rituals both Pagan and Christian for millenia. It is perhaps most well known for its inclusion in the story of Jesus of Nazareth's birth. According to the Christian bible Myrrh, along with gold and frankincense, was one of the gifts brought to the child Jesus by three wise men.
The time indicated in the account coincides with the height of Myrrh's heyday because the resin was widely used in Pagan religious practices. Myrrh is known for its abilities in matters of protection, purification, healing, magical potency and Blessings. It is use as a spiritual and sacred tool
