Myrrh – Essential oil 


Format: 5 ml 

Certified pure  

Origin: Somalia 


In ancient Egypt, myrrh was used to prevent aging and maintain healthy skin and was also used to embalm the body. This precious gum-resin seduces on the beauty side by its properties to beautify the skin as well as by its powerful calming and comforting action on the soul and the spirit.1 

Research has concluded that it is also a powerful antioxidant and can protect against oxidative liver damage.2 A 2010 study found that topical application of myrrh oil helped raise white blood cells around skin wounds, resulting in faster healing. 3 

This much-loved ancient treasure is thankfully still available to us in our time!
