Who We Are

Hanford’s Balsam of Myrrh Made Since 1846

Originally learned by Seth Hanford during his extensive travels, the recipe behind Hanford’s Balsam of Myrrh was brought to New York in the early 1840s and was used as an anti-bacterial liniment for horses and other livestock, for which it is still employed. It wasn’t until 1846 that Seth’s son, George A. Hanford, founded the Hanford Manufacturing Company, which continues to manufacture Hanford’s Balsam of Myrrh to this day. In 1905, G.A.’s son, George C. Hanford, designed and built the Hanford Manufacturing building that still stands in Syracuse, New York, where Hanford’s Balsam of Myrrh is still manufactured from the very finest ingredients, in keeping with the original recipe.
