Peruvian Myrrh Resin Incense
Peruvian Myrrh (Commiphora Myrrha) has a warm earthy, woodsy fragrance, with slight balsamic undertones. Myrrh is typically blended with frankincense, prickly pear, Peruvian copal and others. It has been used through out the ages as an ingredient in incense, perfumes, etc.
Resin incense has always had a slightly more mystical vibe to it than your more well known incense. Resins come straight from particular trees so there is no manufacturing or making. With other incense it’s common to just light a stick and let it burn from a holder, but with resins there are multiple steps involved and that makes burning resin a bit more ritual like.
Resin incense tends to have a stronger scent and even lingers longer than most other forms of incense.
Properties: Purification, protection, healing, love, and balance.

How to Use:
The best way to burn resin is on incense charcoals. Place the incense charcoals in a heat-resistant container that is filled with salt, sand or ash.
1 . An incense burner specifically made for burning resins is helpful, but any heat safe vessel can work. If you’re not using a resin burner will want to put down a little bit of sand to keep the charcoal from ruining the dish or bowl.
2. Place a charcoal disc in between a set of tongs and light it up!
3. Place charcoal on top of your sand or in your resin burner. Next place just one piece, or a few smaller pieces, of your choice of resin. The resin will begin to melt as smoke billows into the air. At this point you can begin to meditate or send any prayers or intentions into the smoke and air.
