While it is known to hold powerful cleansing properties, particularly for the throat and mouth, Myrrh oil can also create an inspiring atmosphere with its aroma.

What Is Myrrh Oil Used For?

Myrrh essential oil comes from the resin of the myrrh tree, which is a relative of frankincense. Smoky and herbaceous, the unique scent of Myrrh promotes an inviting environment. Historically used as religious incense, Myrrh is said to increase spiritual awareness and promote an inspiring, energetic atmosphere. It also supports oral hygiene and can soothe the mouth, gums, and throat.* Put one drop in two ounces of water and gargle for an effective mouth rinse. You can boost your dental routine by adding a drop of Myrrh to your toothpaste prior to brushing.


Where Does Myrrh Essential Oil Come From?

Myrrh blends well with many citrus, wood, and floral oils, including Frankincense, Lemon, Geranium, Sandalwood, Tea Tree (Melaleuca), Jasmine, Vetiver, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Rosemary, and Lavender.

The oil is distilled from the resin of the Myrrh tree, a thorny tree native to North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. When Myrrh branches are cut or scratched, they ooze a sap that hardens when exposed to air. This sap—called resin—is then collected and steam distilled into Myrrh essential oil.
