Due to its versatility and effectiveness, Myrrh has been valued in many cultures for centuries. With myriad applications, Myrrh was anciently used for everything from medicine to religious purposes. Today the resin extracted from the myrrh tree is transformed into a herbaceous and wood essential oil that captures all the effectiveness of the resin. If you want smooth, youthful-looking skin, emotional balance, or cleanse the body, Myrrh essential oil is a useful addition to your collection of essential oils.
Ancient records show that myrrh was considered so valuable that it was sometimes valued for its weight in gold. Myrrh essential oil is derived from the gummy resin of the small prickly myrrh tree and has been used for centuries for its internal and external health benefits. Myrrh has been used throughout history as a perfume, frankincense, and health aid. It was also used in embalming and religious ceremonies. Myrrh has powerful cleansing properties, especially for the mouth and throat. It's also soothing to the skin — it promotes a smooth, youthful-looking complexion — and it promotes balance and emotional well-being. *
