Myrrh Essential Oil (Egypt)
Botanical Name: Commiphora myrrha
Extraction Method: Myrrh Essential Oil is extracted via Solvent Extraction. This is the use of solvents (ethanol, petroleum ether or methanol) to extract fragrant plant materials that are too delicate to be distilled or extracted in any other ways. The resultant colored and thick material (known as concrete) is then mixed with alcohol which further extracts the aromatic essences. The final product is known as an absolute. Our Myrrh Essential Oil is an absolute sporting a thick, luscious yellowish-orange consistency, like the yolk of a fresh egg.
Description: Myrrh is the hardened reddish brown “tears” which the trunk of the Commiphora myrrha tree excretes. To increase the yield of this natural resin, native collectors make incisions into the tree trunks. Looks like the three wise men in the Bible are not the only ones who value this ancient gift from mother nature!
Use it in an oil burner: like many other Essential Oils, Myrrh Essential Oil is great for creating a calming ambience around the house. Add a few drops of it to your oil burner and let peace permeate your living space by the end of a very hectic work week.
Blends well with: Frankincense, Lavender, Palmarosa, Patchouli, Rose, Rosewood, Sandalwood, Tea Tree and Thyme.
Aromatic scent: Myrrh Absolute is sweet, soft, earthy and rich all at once, with a hint of spice. Sounds a lot like life experiences, doesn’t it?
