About: Myrrh is a dwarfed conifer tree with knotted branches found in the arid deserts of Northern Africa. It produces a thick sap from which the essential oil is produced through CO2 extraction.

Today, Myrrh is used in many formulations. It smells amazing in blended soaps, candles, diffusers, and body care products.
