Like frankincense, myrrh is resin from trees that grow primarily in parts of Arabia and Africa. Myrrh resin, however, has a fragrance completely different from frankincense—warm, earthy, spicy and slightly bitter (the word "myrrh" in fact comes from a Hebrew root meaning "bitter"). For centuries, myrrh has been used in the worship of God, often being combined with frankincense, to which it makes an excellent complement.  

These multi-colored resins are processed by the monks, to rid them of obvious impurities and break them down to a small enough size for easy burning.
