Myrrh

Featured Plant of the Month
Myrrh

MYRRH comes from a stiff-branched thorny tree, which bears white flowers and a plum-sized fruit. In the Bible, it was used in the anointing oil of the Tabernacle, and in embalming the dead. During that time, it was also used as a spice or a medicine.

“And Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds. Then they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in strips of linen with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury.” 

John 19:39-40
