Product Description

Myrrh Gum Resin Herbal Tincture - DISCONTINUED

Also Known As – Commiphora myrrha

Overview - Myrrh bushes grow in the Middle East. They can reach a height of nine feet. The spiny bark is marked by ducts from which a granular yellow secretion flows. As it dries it turns a reddish-brown. This is the resin that gives the tree its name. It is harvested commercially and used in many things from herbal medicine to incense and perfume.

Medicinal Uses – Internally, Myrrh is used in Chinese medicine for menstrual disorders, menopause, uterine tumors, arthritis and in decoctions, liniments and incense used for heart and liver treatments. Some use it for toothache, bruises, sprains and body aches. It is also used in Ayurvedic and western herbalism. Called guggul in Ayurvedic medicine, it is often prescribed for circulation problems, rheumatic disorders and nervous system issues. Externally, in western herbalism, it is most frequently used as an antiseptic for mouthwashes, gargles and toothpaste.

Other Uses – Myrrh is used as incense for many religious ceremonies. It is also used in the perfume industry.

Herbs to Combine/Supplement - The herb is often combined with cinnamon, notoginseng, safflower stamens, Angelica sinensis and Salvia miltiorrhiza to be taken both internally and externally.

Parts Used - The oleo-gum resin is the only portion used medicinally.

Each tincture comes in a light-resistant amber bottle, with an eye dropper, and a tamper-evident seal.

Precautions - Myrrh should not be used during pregnancy. It can cause uterine bleeding. Do not use this herb during a miscarriage or other time of uterine bleeding. Do not use if you have acute internal inflammation. Do not use in cases of fever. Applications of the herb onto the skin may cause a burning feeling. Be very careful to always follow the dosage instructions when using.

  • Small doses are usually tolerated well. Larger doses or doses too close together may cause fever, sweating, vomiting, diarrhea or burning feelings in the bowels and throat.

Preparation and Dosage - A gargle for sore throat: ½ teaspoon of powder should be mixed with 1 or 2 cups of water. Dissolve the powder in the water. Gargle and swallow the mixture. Repeat every 3 or 4 hours until you notice an improvement, then decrease the frequency. For tincture, ½ teaspoon of myrrh can be taken 2 or 3 times per day.

    I really can't judge this product yet, since the lip I was planning to use it on, is being treated by Doctors.
