Myrrh has long been prized by Arabian and Africian cultures for its skin-renewing properties with some considering it almost a fountain of youth! The name is derived from a word meaning "bitter" and has a warm, woodsy aroma. Often paired with Frankincense in the Middle East, both are highly prized in the Middle East for their medicinal properties. Myrrh has been used historically to purge and cleanse after an illness.
While Myrrh Essential Oil is classically paired with Frankincense, it also works very with bergamot, chamomile, clove, eucalyptus, lemon, rosemary, and tea tree oil. Myrrh is versatile and can be mixed with lotions, shampoos, and carrier oils to use on the skin.
Topical: Add a drop to your lotion or a carrier oil and then massage gently into the skin to revive and rejuvenate. It can also be massaged with a carrier oil on the soles of the feet when exposed to sickness.
Diffuser: Myrrh can be diffused to contribute to a warm, uplifting mood. (Word of caution: Myrrh is one of the thickest and stickiest of all essential oils and is prone to causing gumming and clogs in nebulizing diffusers. Follow manufacturer's directions to thoroughly clean your diffuser after using Myrrh to remove sticky residue and thus avoid performance issues with your diffuser.)

Myrrh is great for the skin. I use one drop of Carrot Seed, Frankincense and Myrrh to make my own skin cream. Better than any high priced cream on the market. I didn't realize all the uses of Myrrh. It can also be used as an expectorant so I'll be putting it in my diffuser for any one in our family who gets a cold.

"Myrrh is not one of my favorite smelling oils. But the fresh smell of this oil does help. Myrrh is a base note oil, with deep, earthy, musky notes. It's not a thin oil and this bottle has a rich golden color."
How do your essential oils compare to the very popular "home party" ones?
What oil do you dilute the blends?
Question by: Laura Price on May 31, 2017 10:11:00 AM
We believe our essential oils are of top quality and we post the GC/MS test results for each batch to back it up. Show them to your aromatherapist and see what they say. Most "home party" or network marketing oil companies won't release their GC/MS test results, and it kinda leaves you wondering "why?" When independent testing has been done, unfortunately the popular companies have not been blemish free. That's not to say it couldn't happen to any company on occasion, but I remember one case where one of the biggest companies was caught putting a synthetic into their peppermint oil to make it smell sweeter. That doesn't get in their by accident. So, be careful, and try not to only get your information from somebody who has a financial interest in you buying their oils - even us. Nobody knows everything and nobody is perfect despite what they might like to project. But we try to get the best, for a reasonable price.
