Myrrh incense has been used for over 5,000 years. Although it is available in other forms, resin is the most common for rituals and for refreshing. Most often called myrrh lumps resin, these are really chunks of crystallized myrrh resin. It has long been believed to be of medicinal value. However, in today's world it is best to use it as an incense only.
Because it is not self-lighting, you'll need to burn it with self-lighting charcoal made especially for burning resin and powder incense, such as Three Kings Charcoal. Once placed on burning charcoal, it makes a fragrant, thick smoke. Some people grind the resin lumps before burning, and others prefer to use the lumps whole.
Famous for being a gift presented by the Magi to Jesus, myrrh is often mixed with frankincense for a traditional religious scent.
Mothers-to-be and nursing mothers should never use myrrh in any form.
Not for use by children. Never leave burning incense unattended.
