OVERVIEW

 

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 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. The Guggul Gum offered by Simply Leafy is raw, and may need further processing for some applications.

gum resin (please note- Simply Leafy offers only the whole resin which is unprocessed)
