Myrrh is an aromatic resin that has been used for thousands of years. Our Myrrh from Somalia is hand selected for its earthy, full scent. This is a personal favourite of ours, and a little bit goes a long way.
To ensure integrity and transparency, we regularly update our product photos to show our 'fresh current batch' of resins. Choose from a range of resin size to suit your personal needs.
To ensure our resins are always FRESH, we don't keep excess stock. When we sell out of our current batch, where possible we turn on our "Pre-Order" button which means you can reserve your NEW FRESH resins from our NEW FRESH HARVEST.
As we move through nature's seasons, enjoy the variation in colour and resin size, depending on the amount of rainfall for the season.
Tip for burning on charcoal:
Once your charcoal disc is fully lit we recommend leaving it to cool for about 5-10 minutes or until it turns grey before placing your resin on top of the charcoal. This helps to release the natural oil from your resin without burning it with intense heat. Remember, once the bottom of your resin starts to burn, safely flip it over with a pair of mini tongs to get the most out of your resin.
Tip for burning on a tea light burner:
After your resin has been gently heating for about 45 minutes (depending on your resin size and dimensions of your burner) you'll notice your resin may start to burn. This is when it needs to be turned over. We recommend using a pair of mini tongs to safely flip your resin over and squash it once it's been softened by the heat. Squashing the resin open will expose it to a greater surface area of heat which helps to optimise the benefits of your resin.
Tip if your resin size is too big:
We recommend using a hand mortar and pestle (or similar tool) to create your desired size (if required).
Storage & Safety
Resins are a natural product and need to be stored with care. Store in a cool, dry place away from UV sunlight exposure.
Here at Frankincense Pure we only recommend burning frankincense and myrrh resins. We understand there may be people who choose to chew or ingest, however, we are not medically trained and can only recommend resin to be enjoyed by being burnt safely – on either a charcoal or tealight incense burner, for aromatic purposes.
To safely burn incense, either on charcoal or in a tealight incense burner, ensure it’s out of sight and reach of children and pets and that the area is well ventilated. Never leave your burner unattended and always ensure your burner is placed and remains on a heat proof surface when in use, away from all flammable items. Brass, stainless steel and similar type burners remain HOT when in use, never handle when in use.
