About: Myrrh essential oil is extracted from the thick sap of Myrhh trees, dwarfed conifers found in the arid deserts of Northern Africa. The essential oil has a rich, resinous, earthy aroma that is excellent for supporting the respiratory system when applied as a vapor rub. To soothe flatulence and support digestion, massage Myrrh onto the abdomen. For skincare, Myrrh can be applied with carrier oil to promote toning, regeneration and an overall healthy complexion.
Blending Recommendations: Myrrh essential oil is used as a base note in many colognes and perfumes. Myrrh blends well with all essential oils in the proper setting.

❄️ When the weather turns cold, Myrrh tends to harden to a resinous state. While this is completely natural and does not affect the integrity of the oil, it is very inconvenient for usage. Luckily, it's easy to fix.
Making sure that the lid is tightly shut, insert your bottle of myrrh into a cup of warm water and allow to sit for a few minutes. This should soften the myrrh back to a usable consistency.
