Myrrh is the sap or resin from a tree, rather than a true essential oil, and is a smoky mysterious oil with unique healing qualities. The oil is pale to dark amber in color and has active constituents of limonene, dipentene, pinene and eugenol. Some of its countries of origin are Somalia, North Africa and Libya.
Myrrh has excellent fungicidal properties, which makes it well used in a vaginal douche against yeast infections, helping to alleviate the symptoms. As an antiseptic and astringent, Myrrh is good for the gums, as well as helping to heal mouth ulcers and other external skin conditions. Its antiseptic properties are also good for helping to treat asthma, coughs, chest infections and bronchitis. It is a great expectorant and will help to dry up excess mucous. It is also reported to have a tonic and stimulating action on the stomach as well as the entire digestive tract and is used as a remedy for diarrhea.
Myrrh blends well with Clove, Frankincense, Lavender, Patchouli and Sandalwood.
Avoid in the first trimester of pregnancy.
