Guggul Powder (Commiphora mukul) - India

Scents of Earth
$3.20

A relative of the African Myrrh tree, Guggul is a soft, golden brown myrrh gum resin. An exudation from a small scrubby tree or shrub that's found in the central regions of India, it's less bitter in aroma than the hard bisabol type myrrh from Africa and Arabia. Guggul has a warm, slightly sweet, balsamic, herbaceous, and earthy aroma with hints of Vanilla. It's our preferred myrrh-type resin for many of our own incense mixtures. Well known and widely used in Ayurvedic medicine, guggul or "common myrrh" is said to rejuvenate, to increase one's energy and provide an overall feeling of well being. It purifies the air and cleanses the body. Scientific research indicates that common myrrh reduces pain and inflammation and has calming effects. It's used as incense in India in the evening to relax before retiring. This powder form is easy to use for blends, or making your own incense sticks or cones.
