Inner Peace

As ancient as it is useful, the power of Myrrh extends from medicinal, to cosmetic, aromatic, and spiritual. The aroma of Myrrh has calming, clarifying, and focusing properties. Commiphora resins contain an exceptionally wide array of molecules, from the most volatile aromatic monoterpenes to the weightier sesquiterpene and sesquiterpene lactone compounds – constituents that possess valuable medicinal and skincare properties still used in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine today. Myrrh is especially valued as a meditative aid with the ability to instill deep tranquility of mind.

Used topically, Myrrh Essential Oil facilitates the fading of unwanted blemishes on the skin, soothes itchiness, and reduces symptoms of eczema among other skin ailments. It effectively cleans, moisturizes, and tightens the skin, thereby reducing and preventing further chapping, cracking, and sagging.

Used in hair, Myrrh Essential Oil’s astringency strengthens the roots and thus reduces hair loss. Along with addressing dandruff, its scent also stimulates the brain, promotes alertness, and boosts energy.

Used in a massage, Myrrh Essential Oil strengthens the muscles and smooths the skin while promoting relaxation. Its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties address symptoms of indigestion and prevent toxins from accumulating in the circulatory system.
