This is a very nice Myrrh essential oil with an especially refined character and is one that we highly recommend.
The significant history of Myrrh dates back some 4,000 years for its extensive use in healing preparations, perfumery, incense, and ritualistic ceremonies. Myrrh essential oil is a warm, sweet smelling (yet bitter tasting), earthy oil that can be used effectively in your aromatherapy and natural perfume blends. It is an antiseptic, astringent, and expectorant, while also being helpful to stop bleeding, and is useful for supporting the immune system.
Myrrh oil is especially valued for use in skin preparations, respiratory formulas, for treating wounds, and as a meditative aid with the ability to instill deep tranquility of mind.
