The Commiphora myrrha shrub can grow up to 30 feet tall and has been used for thousands of years. Harvesters make cuts in the trunk of Egyptian myrrh to stimulate production of a thick, red resin, which is then steam-distilled to make our essential oil.

Myrrh can enhance spirituality and can aid meditation. Diffuse for spiritual grounding or apply topically in 5% dilution to skin.
Myrrh essential oil can have a slightly thick consistency so we would recommend placing the bottle in a hot water bath for easier use.
Myrrh has been used for centuries as an ingredient in incense, perfumes, and for embalming and fumigation in Ancient Egypt.
