Bdelium (also spelt bdellium or bdellion) is an aromatic gum-like myrrh that is exuded from the tree species Commiphora wightii and Commiphora africana and at least one other Indian species, C. stocksiana.[1]

Bdellium has some magical properties and, as such, 2 drachms of it are a component of Belch Powder.[2][3]
