Myrrh Oil

Commiphora myrrha

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.

Benefits and uses

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.
