It has been used for over 3000 years as a remedy. Myrrh was once worth its weight in gold. It is a powerful anti-microbial agent so its smoke is cleansing. It is also traditionally a sacred smoke. Its qualities are uplifting and energising.

How to Burn Resins:
Light the charcoal with matches or lighter for about 20 seconds until it self-ignites. Use tongs to hold it up (never hold it with your fingers alone or you might get burned). Place the lit charcoal in a bowl or any incense burner. The bowl or incense burner should be filled with sand or dirt. Let the charcoal warm for a few minutes. (It turns gray around the edges when it is ready) Now you are ready! Add a small amount of resin on top of the charcoal. The resin will burn and soon release essential, aromatic oils through the smoke. Continue to place resins or powder on charcoal as they burn out and smoke decreases for a continuous burn.
