Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) was one of the most desired and sought after items in the world. Historically, it was associated with divine healing powers and considered to be more precious than gold.
It is mentioned in the Bible more than 20 times, it was used as incense in religious rituals throughout the ancient world, and it promotes spiritual awareness and is uplifting. In the Bible, Moses was said to have used oil containing myrrh to anoint priests
Myrrh was used in a purification procedure used to beautify the women who were presented before King Ahasurerus of the Medes and Persians when he was choosing a queen. This is mentioned in Esther 2:12, “…for so were the days of their purifications accomplished, to wit, six months with oil of myrrh, and six months with sweet odours, and with other things for the purifying of the women”(Rainbow Study Bible 636-637)
