Nature/Essence – Healing & Restorative
FOR THE SKIN
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.
FOR THE BODY
Myrrh oil makes a great inhalation to loosen up and help expel respiratory congestion, soothe coughs and bronchitis and provide powerful antiseptic activity. It can also be used to stimulate digestive function. Myrrh is wonderful in homemade toothpaste, mouthwash or gargles to promote healthy mouth, gums and throat.
FOR THE MIND
Myrrh has profound effects on the nervous system, and has long been used as an incense. It helps ground and centre the mind, and is highly recommended during meditation or spiritual practices. It is said to help you move forward if feeling stuck, giving courage and inner strength.
FOR THE HOME
Some people like to diffuse Myrrh at Christmas time for its woody spicy scent and religious significance as one of the gifts given to the baby Jesus.
