Commiphora myrrha (organic)

Origin: Somalia

 The Commiphora species which yield myrrh are shrubs or small trees up to meters high. They have sturdy knotted branches, trifoliate aromatic leaves and small white flowers. The trunk exudes a natural oleoresin, a pale yellow liquid which hardens into reddish-brown tears, known as myrrh. The native collectors make incisions in the bark of the tree to increase the yield.
