Myrrh is a powerful antimicrobial and antiseptic, and has anti-inflammatory, astringent and healing properties that make it one of the best essential oils for chronic or slow to heal wounds and cracked, weeping skin including eczema, athlete’s foot and mouth ulcers. It was used by ancient Egyptians to preserve the skin (both in embalming and for beauty), and works nicely in skin creams for mature, weathered or wrinkled skin.
