Opopanax (Commiphora Erythrea)

Latin name: Commiphora Erythrea.

Common Name: Opopanax, sweet myrrh, bisabol myrrh, Opoponax, Pastinaca opopanax, Opopanax chironium, Mecca balsam.



Botanical classification.               

Country of Origin: East Africa.

Family: Burseraceae.

Description: Opopanax resin is collected from Commiphora guidottii, a tree found growing in tropical and subtropical areas throughout Africa and Asia. Hailing from the same family as myrrh (Commiphora myrrha), opopanax in its resinous form has long been heated and used as an incense. However, opopanax’s fragrance is sweet and soft, with resinous and balsamic notes and without myrrh’s sometimes imposing pungency and earthiness, earning it the nickname “sweet myrrh.”
