μυροβλύτης → myrrh-flowing, myrrh-streaming, myrrh-gushing, myroblete

A myroblyte (/ˈmɪrəblaɪt/; from Byzantine Greek μυροβλύτης, muroblútēs, 'whose relics produce myron'; Latin: myroblyta; Church Slavonic: мѵрото́чецъ; Romanian: izvorâtor de mir; Georgian: მირონმდინარე) is a Christian saint from whose relics or burial place "an aromatic liquid with healing properties" or "holy water (very much like myrrh)", known as the Oil of Saints, "is said to have flowed, or still flows", or from whose body emanates a scent known as the odor of sanctity. The exudation of the oil or scent itself is referred to as myroblysia (from Greek μυροβλυσία, muroblusía) or myroblytism. In the Eastern Orthodox Church, some icons are also believed to release the oil.
