The Commiphora myrrha shrub can grow up to 30 feet tall and has been used for thousands of years for its healing properties. Harvesters make cuts in the trunk of Egyptian myrrh to stimulate production of a thick, red resin, which is then steam-distilled to make our essential oil.

Myrrh can enhance spirituality and can aid meditation and healing. Diffuse for spiritual grounding or apply topically in 5% dilution to damaged skin.
Myrrh essential oil can have a slightly thick consistency so we would recommend placing the bottle in a hot water bath for easier use.
Myrrh has been used for centuries as an ingredient in incense, perfumes, and for embalming and fumigation in Ancient Egypt. In folk tradition it was used for muscular pains and in rheumatic plasters. Called Mo Yao in China, it has been used since at least 600 B.C. primarily as a wound herb and blood stimulant. Myrrh Oil, distilled from the resin, has been used since ancient Greek times to heal wounds.
