Myrrh essential oil has a middle note fragrance and medium strength aroma recognised by its warm, rich, spicy and aromatic scent with balsamic undertones. It blends particularly well with frankincense, lavender, palmarosa, patchouli, rose, sandalwood, tea tree and thyme.
The African myrrh tree can grow up to ten metres in height, the trunk exuding a natural oleoresin that hardens into reddish brown tears and contains the essence of the oil. Resin collectors often make incisions into the tree to increase the yield.
Myrrh oil is included in skin care and perfumery, its calming and intricate aroma said to deeply enhance the spiritual experiences of yoga and meditation practise.
Myrrh oil also possesses moisturising properties; a few drops added to your shampoo for a truly luxurious shower.
Our 100% pure myrrh essential oil is available in bottle sizes from 10ml up to 5000ml.
Cautions: Myrrh Essential Oil can be possibly toxic in high concentrations, and should not be used during pregnancy.
Usage Directions: Since this essential oil has a slightly thick consistency, We would recommend placing the bottle in a very hot water bath, changing the water frequently and once it is back to the liquid state be sure to shake before use.
