Use for protection, healing and prosperity, for spiritual grounding, and for fertility.
Acacia Gum is a golden yellow resin (also known as Gum Arabic) with a glassy appearance and a light woody fragrance. It comes from several species of acacia native to North Africa, and the bush was believed to house a particular goddess who was able to encourage fertility in women and to heal in general. In ancient Egypt it was traditionally used in the embalming process, and in the wider ancient world it was an important ingredient of magic and medicine. It also has excellent binding properties and is useful as a fixative for essential oils.
