Commiphora myrrha


Plant and Oil Description

The sweet, woody scent and medicinal properties of myrrh have made it a precious commodity throughout history. Myrrh oil is extracted from a reddish-brown resin harvested from the thorny Commiphora tree, native to northeastern Africa and southwest Asia. In the 25th century BC, the 5th dynasty ruler of Egypt recorded an expedition to modern-day Somalia to bring back exotic prizes, including cheetahs, giraffes, ebony, ivory, and large quantities of myrrh. Myrrh is also mentioned in the Bible as being one of the valuable gifts brought by the three wise men to Jesus the night of his birth. It has been used in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds of years for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties among other benefits.


What’s it Good For?

  1. Antibacterial – The ancient Egyptians used myrrh oil to preserve mummies, and modern research has confirmed its effectiveness for slowing decay by testing its antibacterial properties. Myrrh oil is effective against several infectious bacteria, Lyme disease, and athlete’s foot. For skin wounds, use myrrh oil with sandalwood oil for the best results.
  2. Skin care – SenseLAB’s myrrh oil is worthy of a spot next to your favorite skin creams for its ability to reverse the damage caused by free radicals. In one particular study, this potent antioxidant even outperformed vitamin E at protecting the skin from oxidative damage.
  3. Air purifier – The antibacterial properties of myrrh oil make it a perfect natural air freshener by both eliminating odors caused by bacteria and dispersing its fresh, earthy scent. Add SenesLAB’s myrrh oil to a diffuser, vaporizer, or spray bottle diluted with water to freshen up closets, bathrooms, and other problem areas.
  4. Oral health care – Add a few drops of SenseLAB’s myrrh oil to toothpaste, mouthwash, or an oral rinse to kill the bacteria that causes bad breath, cavities, and gum disease. Myrrh’s antibacterial properties may also help with the pain and inflammation associated with gingivitis. Caution: do not use while recovering from oral surgery, as stitches can degrade when exposed to myrrh.
  5. Pain relief – Mind over matter: compounds in myrrh oil are able to reduce the body’s perception of pain by interacting with opioid receptors in the brain. In addition, myrrh oil can reduce the swelling and pain associated with inflammation by impeding the production of inflammatory chemicals. Use our myrrh oil in a massage or vaporizer to relieve the pain caused by sore muscles and joints, injuries, and headaches.

Great for face serums

I bought this for my face and I can say after 2 weeks using it my face is brighter and has a better overall appearance. I put 3-4 drops in my lotion in the mornings and take a minute or so to massage it into my face. The scent: Its Myrrh. All I would say is if youre face doesnt smell like a museum when you are done, you arent doing it right!

I love this oil.

Great product for tag removal!

This smells AMAZING. I love the smell of myrrh and this oil is so rich and thick (except the first couple of drops to take a few minutes to come out), it smells very good. I used this oil in a homemade balm recipe and it was perfect for what I needed. I would buy this again.
