Myrrh Resin (Commiphora myrrha)

The source of Myrrh Resin is the thorny shrubs of Commiphora myrrha that grow wildly and naturally in Somalia, Ethiopia, and Kenya. The tree oozes as a pale yellow-white viscous liquid from natural cracks in the bark or from fissures or when tapped. The exudate hardens into a reddish-brown mass when air dried, and often contains white patches.
