  • Pure myrrh (מר דרור mar deror) 500 shekels (about 6 kg)
  • Sweet cinnamon (קינמון בשם kinnemon besem) 250 shekels (about 3 kg)

  • Cassia (קדה kiddah) 500 shekels (about 6 kg)
  • Olive oil (שמן זית shemen zayit) one hin (about 6 liters, or 5.35 kg)

Myrrh is a fragrance that comes from is a gum-resin extracted from a number of small, thorny tree species of the genus. When a wound on a tree penetrates through the band into the sapwood, the tree secretes a resin. Myrrh is harvested by repeatedly wounding the trees to bleed the gum, which is waxy and coagulates quickly. After the harvest, the gum becomes hard and glossy.
