Myrrh is the resin, or tree sap, obtained from several species of trees within the genus Commiphora. It has an extensive history of use for medicinal and aromatic purposes dating back thousands of years. It’s mentioned in the records of numerous cultures, including Hebrew, Egyptian, Arabic, African, Greek, Roman, Chinese, Jewish, and others. Myrrh was and still is an integral component of many incenses. Today myrrh is primarily used as an essential oil for aromatherapy, and can also be found in some commercial skin care products. For aromatherapy myrrh oil has a warm, musky aroma that’s focusing, centering and meditative.
Myrrh has always been a popular base-note oil to help prolong fragrances in other oils. The resin was blended so often with other essential oils and carrier oils that some cultures would sometimes call it “ointment” instead of "muron" (myrrh).

Myrrh can be used for protection against infectious diseases and to elevate feelings of well-being. Diffused and inhaled, Myrrh can reduce anxiety & facilitate calmness.

Myrrh’s properties are antifungal, antiseptic and antibacterial; balancing to the thyroid and endocrine systems, and supportive of the immune system. This powerful resin may aid problems such as coughs/colds, wounds, digestive issues, diarrhea, ulcers, dry/cracked skin, eczema and athlete's foot.
