You may have heard of Myrrh as one of the three gifts bestowed to baby Jesus on the day of his birth. However, if you've been messing around with essential oils, you would also know that it has been widely used throughout history as an ingredient in perfumes, incenses, cosmetics, and medicines. Deemed more precious than gold during medieval times, Myrrh was also extensively used in religious ceremonies and burial rituals as an embalming material.
In modern aromatherapy, Myrrh's smoky, herbaceous, and woody scent can help support emotional balance and well-being. Diffuse to assist with your moods, enhance awareness, and lift your spirits.
This oil is also known for its powerful cleansing properties, especially for the mouth and throat. Don't go gargling with it undiluted though! It's too potent to come in direct contact with the delicate inner lining of your mouth. Instead, we recommend adding a drop or two into your toothpaste to boost its cleansing power!
Not quite ready for those cosmetic procedures and anti-ageing creams? No worries, you can fight those lines and wrinkles naturally! Try adding Myrrh essential oil into your favourite lotion or moisturiser for a smooth, youthful-looking complexion.
