The Myrrh Tree (Commiphora mukul), also known as Mukul Myrrh Tree or Guggul, is a small tree or shrub and member in the Torchwood family (Burseraceae), native to northern Africa and central Asia, but most common in northern India, reaching a maximum height of 4 meters (13ft), with thin papery bark. The branches are thorny, the leaves are simple or trifoliate, the leaflets ovate, up to 5 cm (2in) long, 0.5 – 2.5 cm (0.2-1in) broad, irregularly toothed. The individual flowers are red to pink, with four small petals.

When cut, the branches disperse a thick, gummy yellow resin which quickly dries to a reddish brown paste (gum).

The medicinal properties of Myrrh are as following: it is a tonic, a antiseptic, it promotes secretion and soothes cough and catarrh, it reduces tryglycerides (which results in improved circulation of the coronary blood vessels and a reduction of cholesterin) and it has anti-inflammatory properties. Myrrh resin is used to treat arthritis, bronchitis, inflammation of the stomach and intestines aas well as varicose veins and open wounds or cuts.

History: In ancient Egypt, Myrrh resin was used to embalm the dead. Myrrh is a key component in ancient Indian (Ayurvedic) system of medicine. In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Myrrh (known as ‚Mo Yao‘) is classified as bitter and spicy, with a neutral temperature. It is said to have beneficial effects on the heart, liver, and spleen meridians, as well as ‘blood-moving’ powers to purge stagnant blood from the uterus. It is therefore recommended for rheumatic, arthritic and circulatory problems, and for amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, menopause, and uterine tumors.

Note: Myrrh is not recommended for pregnant women, as the uterus may be overstimulated.
