GOLOKA MYRRH RESIN INCENSE 30G
Goloka Myrrh resin has a smoky, sweet or sometimes bitter smell, which is extracted from a number of small, thorny trees. Classical texts of Ayurveda, which dates back thousands of years, used to use myrrh for wound healing, digestive health and to balance women's issues, and many more. The ancient Egyptians also used myrrh for healing, as well as spiritual rituals. It is traditionally burned incense which repels fleas and mosquitoes.
BOTANICAL NAME: Commiphora myrrha
Incense resins are the original incense. The practice of burning resins – which are simply solid fragrant resin harvested from various trees – is thousands of years old. Burning resins was (and still is) an important part of religious and spiritual rituals and celebrations in many different cultures all around the world. Incense resins are burned on charcoal tablets, which you can find here. We recommend burning charcoal tablets on a bed of sand in a heatproof bowl or cauldron.
The blurb on the packet says this:
Resin is the life-blood of the tree, healing its wounds and inflictions and protecting it against infection. In short, resin repairs, protects and heals. Goloka Frankincense and Myrrh when burned emits a holy smoke and beautiful fragrance that is known to clear negative energies, connect us with our higher consciousness and the spiritual realms, and surround us with high vibrations. It is also used to heal, balance, and protect our physical and energetic bodies.
The purchase price buys one 30g packet. As a very rough guide, 30g is a few spoonfuls of resin. The bag is 8cm across. Most of the resin pieces are roughly 5-8mm but there are some smaller grains in each packet, all the way down to a fine powder. Goloka incense resins are made in India.
