Across the many sisters of sweet gum-producing myrrh trees, these resins are used to maintain a state of enlightenment in addition to clearing negative energy and assisting to shift barriers to clear insight. The particular properties of Opoponax makes it well suited to supporting divination and psychic abilities.
