Myrrh essential oil is steam distilled from the resin of the small, thorny myrrh tree which has strong knotted branches and delicate white flowers on the boughs. The oil is light yellow to light orange in color.
Among its many benefits, Myrrh essential oil is wonderfully suited to individuals prone to over-thinking, worry, and mental distraction. Our Myrrh has recently gone up significantly in price as this is an amazing Myrrh. Deep and wonderful! Myrrh is very difficult and time consuming to distill. We feel privileged to have this Myrrh available to us and feel it is well worth the price increase.
