Commiphora Guidottii Myrrh locally known as "Opopanax" is imported from Ethiopia. This particular myrrh species thrives in the hot lowlands of south Ethiopia in the Sidamo and Bale region.
Traditional Ethiopian medicine uses this species of myrrh for its antiseptic properties (in particular against intestinal infections) , antispasmodic (relaxing) and anti-inflammatory properties.
Guidottii comes in medium to large chunks and varies from a deep red ore color to reddish brown. The fragrance is sweet and fruity with a subtle hint of earthy woodiness at times. I equate the raw scent to a finely aged sweet wine or sweet liquor. This is a truly exotic and special species of myrrh.
For use with charcoal burners.
