Our certified organic myrrh essential oil is hydro distilled from the wildcrafted resin of hearty myrrh trees growing in the natural Somalian landscape. We often use this essential oil to help support healthy skin and a glowing complexion.
The rich resin of the small, thorny Commiphora myrrha tree, with knotted boughs and delicate white flowers, creates a resinous, balsamic, slightly spicy essential oil. Along with its deeply skin healing properties, myrrh essential oil is also helpful in managing minor pain and inflammation as well as helping to promote healthy lung activity. This essential oil can help mitigate the effect of a painful menstrual cycle by supporting overall uterine health. We feel fortunate to be able to offer such a high-quality myrrh essential oil, as this is a precious oil that is typically difficult to source. Emotionally and energetically, myrrh essential oil calms the mind and ushers in a sense of tranquility. It can bring inner stillness and help one reconnect to physical surroundings and one’s spiritual center. Myrrh essential oil can help with overthinking and stabilize a distracted mind.
