The ancient Egyptians mixed herbs, resins, minerals, and botanicals with oils and butters to provide luxurious unguents for skin and hair ravaged by the dry and arid weather of Egypt. The blend of the ingredients of Mendesian oils and butters provide moisturizing, age-defying, and skin repairing properties.
Myrrh is a natural resin extracted from the tree Commiphora myrrha across the Middle East and parts of Africa. Like frankincense it is an antimicrobial. It is also widely used as an palliative for bruises, arthritis, sprains and toothaches. The ancient Egyptians used Myrrh as incense for their midday temple ritual, as well as medicinally.
