Our Myrrh Essential Oil has a warm, refined, light character with a sweetly earthy and resinous finish. Myrrh’s scent is very lightly spicy with a medicinal top note. Myrrh offers excellent fixative properties.
The use of Myrrh dates back millennia and has been used extensively for healing, perfumery and in spiritual and ritual practices. It is particularly popular blended with Frankincense and has been used in religious ceremonies for centuries. It is also valued in meditation blends helping to aid a state of tranquillity when trying to still the mind.
Myrrh is an Essential Oil that improves with age (along with Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver and some other woody oils), and becomes a little richer in scent and a little more viscous. Myrrh is one of the Essential Oils I purchase and keep some tucked away to mature well past its “best by” date for perfumery use.
