Malmal is the real myrrh Commiphora myrrha.

These tears are the resin from the tree, and when Hydro-steam distilled give us Myrrh oil. Traditionally burnt as an aid for meditation - creates a spiritual atmosphere. Good for breathing. Used in hospitals in the Middle East to cleanse and fumigate. Precious gift given to Jesus and used in church to this day. These will leave a resinous, residue in the burner.

Bacteriostatic and antiseptic, used in toothpaste.

Myrrh also grows through central Somalia and Northern Kenya. The tree (called 'dhidin' in Somalia) rarely grows above 2.5 - 3.0m in height and is characterized by knotted and thorny branches which have small leave foliage during the rainy seasons. This makes it somewhat difficult to distinguish from the 30-40 other commiphora varieties that exist in the Horn of Africa. Myrrh is the aromatic, gummy substance exuded by certain trees and shrubs.

I put a few tears in a bowl and use as potpourri. In church they are placed on hot coals and left to smolder.

Organically grown: no pesticides or herbicides used.
