Myrrh and its correspondences

I am trying to learn about Myrrh and its correspondences, was wondering if someone could help me? I have looked on the website and was not able to find anything on it.
Thank you

I found this site that has a great explanation of Myrrh & it’s different uses, properties, correspondences, what it is & how it is used.

I am familiar with Myrrh as it relates back to Jesus and his story. Myrrh was one of the gifts of the Magi upon Jesus’ birth (if I’m remembering correctly) and I associate it with priesthood, spirituality, and death. It was commonly used to embalm bodies, so the connection with death, life, and preservation is there as well. I view Myrrh as a regal ingredient holding great power and connection to the Divine in whatever way the seeker needs.

I’ve never worked directly with Myrrh, so this is just speculation on my part.

Hello @tina4, welcome :sparkles:

Myrrh is one of my favorite essential oils, I have used it extensively over the last 12 years or so. I always buy ‘Therapeutic’ or ‘Medicinal’ grade essential oils! So I can use the Myrrh topically, because, in my opinion, burning it destroys the healing properties. Also, be aware that some oils are synthetic and/or adulterated. Always read the label, if it says do not put on the skin, then it’s probably not safe to inhale either. I listed some things about Myrrh below, it’s probably more than you ever wanted to know, but I do hope it helps answer your questions.
