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 weather of Egypt. The blend of the ingredients of Mendesian oils and butters provides 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 a palliative for bruises, arthritis, sprains, and toothaches. The ancient Egyptians used Myrrh as incense for their midday temple ritual, as well as medicinally.
