Myrrh essential oil has a resinous, balsamic aroma with soft, warm, spicy notes. Throughout history, myrrh has been used to quiet the mind. It supports the external expression of inner peace. It can also help create a peaceful, radiant complexion—use myrrh oil in facial care for skin that seems to glow from within. Myrrh can assist in calming redness and reducing germs that might cause blemishes. Our certified organic myrrh essential oil is hydro-distilled from the resin of small, thorny, hearty myrrh trees in the arid Somalian landscape.
