Histoire et origine

Myrrh is an aromatic gum resin obtained by the myrrh tree (Commiphora myrrha or Commiphora molmol). It comes from the Latin word murra or myrrha, which has the idea of bitterness (one of the component of myrrh scent). Myrrh history is as old as frankincense history. Egyptians have known it since four thousand years. It was used for embalming. In the Bible, myrrh is one of the main component of a sacred anointing oil, but it is also a perfume erotically charged. It symbolises deep intimacy, and possibly even a passionate love for Jesus which is itself our myrrh. It is also a part of the gift offered to Jesus by the Three kings. The book The Song of Songs is more than just a book of eroticism, it also represents the love of the Church towards Jesus. Greeks flavored their wine with myrrh and they associated it to the legend of Myrrha.
