The resin gum extracted from the Commiphora myrrha tree is a superior resin also known as Myrrh. The tree grows wildly and naturally in Somalia, Ethiopia, and Kenya, and oozes 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. The resin is sustainably harvested from the wild jungles of Eastern Africa by Nagaad Resins and Gums in collaboration with the local communities.
