Though frankincense and myrrh tend to bring up certain religious connotations to the western mind, they have been in active use as magical incenses, ritual tools, and for their healing properties since at least 1500bc. Resin incenses are the top of the line in incense burning. Using incense charcoal as a base, you can release the intense fragrance of these fine resin granules -- without the dilution or alteration of scent caused by the burning base or fixatives typical in man-made stick or cone incense. Myrrh is know for: Protection, purification, healing, magical potency, and its use as a sacred tool in many cultures. 1 lb Myrrh may come in larger chucked peices that need to be worked down.
