Our 100% pure, authentic Organic Myrrh Essential Oil is distilled in the USA using only premium quality myrrh resin that has been ethically sourced and sustainably harvested in Somaliland. It is a sublime, therapeutic quality oil that is well suited for wellness, cosmetic, aromatherapy, spiritual and fragrancing applications.
Myrrh resin has been used for centuries for many of the same applications mentioned above. According to the story of the three wise men (Magi) within the Gospel, myrrh resin was among the three precious gifts given to the baby Jesus.
A member of the Burseraceae plant family, Commiphora Myrrha is a species of myrrh that is native to Northeast Africa. Commiphora Myrrha are small trees that are prized for the amber brown aromatic oleoresin that seeps from the tree when it is cut or injured. The dried resin helps to protect the injured area of the tree as it heals. The properties that make the resin so beneficial for protecting the tree also make the resin incredibly advantageous when incorporated into personal care applications.
Our Organic Myrrh Essential Oil possesses an extraordinarily warm, resinous, balsamic, and slightly spicy aroma. It is a base note that blends well with many essential oils, especially those in the citrus, spice and wood families. Myrrh has traditionally been paired with Frankincense as their applications and aromas are considered synergistic. Within skin care applications, Organic Myrrh Essential Oil helps to soothe dry, itchy or irritated skin. It is valued for its use in supporting healthy oral and dental care. Within diffuser applications, it can be helpful in supporting a healthy respiratory system. For emotional wellness, Myrrh Essential Oil is a balancing oil that is said to help support a positive outlook. It helps soothe emotional discomfort and promotes a sense of calm. Within spiritual applications, it is considered a sacred essential oil suitable for worship and meditation.
Avoid Myrrh Essential Oil in formulations intended for pregnant or lactating women as advised by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young within Essential Oil Safety (Edition 2).
Organic, Ethical and Sustainable Sourcing:
Our United States manufacturing partner ethically sources certified organic myrrh resin directly from landowners in Somaliland, offering them fair pricing for the resin. Co-owned by a native of Somaliland, our manufacturing partner is a mission-driven company that directs 20% of their gross revenue towards community development that improves the availability of clean water for residents of Somaliland. Their initiatives also directly support Somali-led research, erosion mitigation, equitable wages for harvesters and the improvement of living conditions. Their educational initiatives teach landowners and harvesters how to organically harvest premium quality resin while ensuring conservation of the myrrh trees.
Commiphora Myrrha s not classified as an endangered species by The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species (International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources). However, we believe that it is prudent to carefully source this precious oil from ethical suppliers that are mindful of the conservation of these sacred trees.
