GUGGUL / GOKUL / BDELLIUM / MUKUL MYRRH PIECES – Nepal. This Guggul resin is from the Commiphora wightii (a flowering plant in the family Burseraceae, most common in northern India), and is also known under the common names Indian bdellium-tree, or Mukul myrrh. The gummy resin is harvested from the small tree’s bark through the process of tapping. When burned as incense, Guggul has a fragrance similar to myrrh, with a warm, slightly sweet, balsamic, herbaceous and earthy aroma with hints of vanilla.

Guggul is often burnt after sundown to lend a tranquil note to the evening – it is the same product that was known in Hebrew, ancient Greek and Latin sources as bdellium. It is a useful resin to burn during meditation. When carried from room to room, Guggul is said to drive away evil spirits and remove the evil eye from the home and its family members. Comiphora wightii has also been a key component in ancient Indian Ayurvedic medicine for nearly 3,000 years.
