Myrrh is surrounded by a mystical aura since antiquity as it was considered amongst the most powerful resins in Witchcraft. It comes from a tree considered sacred – just like its precious resin, Commiphora myrrh. Not only is associated with Fire but it is also associated with Water. This mystical and powerful combination is what makes this resin so unique in Witchcraft and Alchemy.
Egyptian Priests and Priestesses valued this resin and was dedicated to Goddess Isis, goddess of Magic and healing. Moreover, it was believed that this resin was used in the sacred Pyre where the soul of Ra – Bennu was resurrecting. Ancient Greeks continued this tradition, as they discovered its aphrodisiac properties and uses in love magic.
This amazing resin is mentioned numerous times in the Bible – both in Old and in New Testament. According to the sacred scripts of Christianity, the three Magi offered Myrrh (along with Gold and Frankincense) to the new-born Jesus.
Also, in China was believed that this resin can regenerate a part of our Vital Energy called ‘Blood’, which comes together with chi running through us.
