We know Myrrh has been used for thousands of years, but take a look at some of these vintage advertisements from the early 20th century.
This advertisement for Wright's Myrrh Tooth Soap features a baby with dark skin, which reads "See my nice white teeth." However, I can't help but notice that there are no teeth visible.
This vintage bottle of Myrrh Tincture contains 85% alcohol, so at least you'll have a nice buzz along with experiencing the healing effects of Myrrh.
This Balsam of Myrrh Antiseptic Dressing and Liniment also contains mostly alcohol (at a healthy 76%!) but extracts of another resin, benzoin.
This pharmacy label for another Tincture of Myrrh shows how commonly available Myrrh remedies were at the time.
