Description

Description

Sharing similar features to frankincense (Burseraceae) 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. They can also be found along the coast of the Red Sea. A yellow liquid is discharged and extracted naturally from cracks or cuts in the trunk of the tree, setting into brownish-red pieces called gum. Steam distillation is used to extract an essential oil from the resin. Most myrrh, however, is used as a resinoid, which is obtained by solvent extraction. When burnt, it expands and blooms, rather than melting.
