                  Myrrh is burned for it's aromatic properties and also used as a form of alternative medicine. It has been prized for hundreds of thousands of years, dating back even to the ancient Egyptians. Sense there is such a vast history of use for this sacred resin, I think it's more than worth checking out. Myrrh has been used in traditional Chinese, Ayurvedic, and western medicine. There has been many studies behind lots of different natural medicines in these ancient healing practices. In partciular, this medicine used for the heart, liver, and spleen meridians.


    It's said to posess rheumatic, and arthritic properties, help with circulatory problems, and for amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, menopause, and uterine tumors. Reiki healers have also found it useful in their energy work. In western medicine it's prized as an antiseptic in mouthwashes, gargles, and toothpastes. It has a very powerful aroma with a bitter taste. Ayurvedic medicine utilized it when kidney dysfunction or stomach pain is apparent.


    This natural incense is easily soluble in water. It has mild pain relieving properties also. In fact, studies have shown that it effects opioid receptors. Opioid receptors are what enable opiate-based compounds to produce the effects that they do. It seems that our bodies and minds are literally designed to pick up on these compounds. Now that is what I call symbiosis. Like Frankincesne, I also believe that it has the ability to expand consciousness, and aid in meditation practice.

    Precautions

    Precautions: Don't consume too much myrrh because a sufficient dosage can be poisonous. Talk with your doctor before considering use. Check pages like webmd for information on interactions and other precautions. Know what you're dealing with in all ways at all times.
