History and TraditionThe Makko is the Japanese name of a powder which is obtained by grinding the bark of a tree species typical of Southeast Asia such Machillus. The bark when pulverized if wet becomes sticky like glue, in fact in some countries it is called " Sticky wood". Because of its special properties and the absence of a peculiar smell, the Makko has been used since ancient times in the production of incense sticks.
InformationThe plant is in the same family of Commiphora Mirrha from which we get the Mirra and, for this reason, the Guggul is also called Sweet Myrrh.
