Myrrh

Used in : Holy Anointing Oil, Temple Incense, Song Of Songs Oil, Messiah's Fragrance and Frankincense & Myrrh Oil

Myrrh comes from the word, marar, meaning to be grieved, make bitter, trickle, or to drop (as in distillation). The acquisition of myrrh was done by slicing the bark of the myrrh tree so that the precious resin oozes out and hardens into drops called “tears”.

Myrrh’s fragrance is sweet to the smell but bitter to the taste which reminds us of the sweetness of our redemption but the bitter price that Yeshua paid to accomplish our salvation. In our desire to become Christ-like and united with the King, we also need to submit to the searching of the Holy Spirit who will show us the areas of our self-life that needs to be crucified. This process may at times be grievous and bitter but 2 Cor 4:17 reminds us that “…momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison”

“… twelve months under the regulations for the women-- for the days of their beautification were completed as follows: six months with oil of myrrh and six months with spices and the cosmetics for women—“ Esth 2:12

"My beloved is to me a pouch of myrrh which lies all night between my breasts.” Song 1:13

"And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: The first and the last, who was dead, and has come to life, says this: 'I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich), and the blasphemy by those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. 'Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. 'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.” Rev 2:8-11 (Smyrna is the Greek word for myrrh.)

Myrrh, is produced by slicing the bark of a myrrh tree so that the precious resin oozes out and hardens into drops called "tears."
Stacte is a name used for free flowing myrrh. Yeshua was given myrrh at His birth; and along with aloes, it was used in preparing His body for burial.

Myrrh is included as one of the ingredients of the holy anointing oil and was well-known to the ancient perfumers.

In antiquity myrrh was used to treat a variety of skin conditions.

Myrrh is mentioned in the Bible 18 times. When Esther was being prepared to be the bride of the King, she receive a daily anointing of oil of myrrh for six months. (Esther 2:12).
In ancient times, for those who could afford it, oil of myrrh was inhaled and applied daily to the skin throughout pregnancy and was diffused during labor as its aromas induce a sense of peace and well-being.

Myrrh, like frankincense, is a universal oil, offering benefits for numerous complaints and conditions. Indicated for bronchitis, dysentery, hyperthyroidism, oral and vaginal thrush, ulcers, and viral hepatitis, it has also been found to benefit asthma, athlete’s foot, coughs, eczema, gingivitis, gum infections, hemorrhoids, mouth ulcers, ringworm, wounds, wrinkles, and chapped or cracked skin. It is widely used today in oral hygiene products.

Myrrh is what is known as a fixing oil. It extends the therapeutic action of any other oil with which it is combined. Biblical people knew this and included myrrh as a significant portion of all of their ointments. In fact, myrrh was such a universally common ingredient of healing ointments at the time of Yeshua, that the Greek word for ointment (muron) by implication perfumed oil and the Greek word for myrrh (muron) are the same. "Smurna" is the strengthened word for "muron". Thus, when Yeshua was anointed with the precious ointment (muron) of spikenard (Matthew 26:1; Mark 14:1-9; Luke 7:36-50; John 11:1-2, 12:1-8) he was probably also being anointed with myrrh.

Myrrh has a very gentle scent and its fixing property is highly prized by perfumers. When combined with other oils, it makes the scent of those oils last longer without masking them. Some of the most delightful fragrances are also short-lived, evaporating rapidly. When one wears perfume or cologne, they want it to last for a whole evening or a day, and not be gone in minutes. Perfumers find myrrh to be the perfect “fixing oil” to extend more volatile fragrances.

Myrrh

Miraculous deliverance and release
Hearts filled with wonder, relief and peace.
Growing excitement for the promise to unfold
A land of milk and honey awaits us, we were told.

Egypt and the Red sea now left behind
But tell me, what’s with this wilderness, so unkind?
Three days now in scorching heat
This rocky wasteland’s not easy on one’s feet.

Bodies by now aching and mouths dry with thirst
Bitter waters at Mara; more than a few tempers that burst.
Temptation and testing is at hand
The choice: to grumble or on God’s character to stand.

A tree tossed in the water, touched and turned the bitter into sweet
This was God’s hint, that the cross will satisfy our need.
Sacrificial living is the message of the myrrh
Therefore, no resurrection unless dying to self first occur.

Ester, our example of a true and worthy queen
A bath of myrrh, was part of her daily preen.
Six months with myrrh under watchful eye
With scrubbing and scouring her helpers were not shy.

Gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh befitted our King
Since birth came His call, to sacrificial offering.
Myrrh tears, like scented treasure drop from the myrrh tree,
Workers come to pierce and collect when these on own accord run free,
Likewise our King was pierced;
Judgment executed on Him for our sins, so fierce.

Smyrna, the congregation named after myrrh
Satan slandered, persecuted and imprisoned her
But glorious words from the One who died and came to life again
Everlasting rewards for those who did not fear affliction and overcame.

Now looking upon lips like lilies that drip with myrrh
Our Savior’s sweet words, causes one’s heart to stir
With love and soberness to imitate the same
Lord, release this sweet fragrance in us, in Jesus’ holy name.

In the land of milk and honey stands a fragrant bride
Adorned with His favor and no need to hide
She exudes from her being this fragrant treasure
And rejoices in the fact that she has brought her God great pleasure. - HR
