Myrrh is a resin produced by small sturdy trees. These grow to no more than 9 feet in height and inhabit the semi-desert regions of Yemen, Libya, and Iran. Myrrh gum powder has astringent and antiseptic properties, making it great for use on the teeth and mouth.
The anti-inflammatory power of Myrrh means it is used in modern pharmaceutical and dental preparations. It is astringent to mucious membrances and used as a gargle and mouthwash in inflammations of the mouth and pharynx. Due to its high effectiveness in the treatment of ulcers and gum problems, it is a popular ingredient in toothpastes.
A yellow liquid is discharged and extracted naturally from cracks or cuts in the trunk. When this sets it resembles brownish-red pieces which are powdered ready to be added straight into our products.
