Myrrh - immune system.
Common Names: Myrrh Gum, Gum Myrrh Tree.
Parts Used: Resin.
Bodily Influences: Myrrh has the undisputed reputation to function in the binding up of wounds and as a healer of open wounds. Myrrh is extremely effective in speeding up the flow of sluggish circulatory fluid by a factor of 4 to 1. This, along with its catalyst properties with other herbs, makes it beneficial for the heart and circulatory system.
Myrrh has long been taken internally and applied to the gums, as a dental herb to prevent infection often experienced after tooth extractions. After the umbilical cord is cut, Myrrh is applied to prevent infection. For sore nipples, Myrrh can be mixed with Vitamin E oil, from capsules, or melted beeswax and applied to the area. Myrrh is a first-rate remedy for infected sore tonsils and sore throat. It may be used as a gargle 80 drops to a 1/2 cup of water, or as a coating when powdered Myrrh is mixed with Vitamin E oil, from capsules. Myrrh raises the immunity and the white blood count to fight infections.
Recommended Dosage: 10 to 40 drops three times per day.
Directions on label: For adults, mix 2 ml of extract in 2 oz (60 ml) of water one time daily preferably with a meal.
