Size:1 lb Guggul, the Commiphora mukul, is a small thorny tree that is native to the Middle East and the Indian plains. Generally leafless, the tree exudes a thick, sticky resin that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. Guggul, whose Sanskrit name means ‘one that protects against diseases’, has written historical information about it going back to 1000 B.C.E. It was used at that time for ‘clearing the coating and obstruction of channels’. The gum exuded by the guggul tree is similar to myrrh, and has been used traditionally in the same ways as myrrh.
