Myrrh

Like Frankincense, Myrrh oil (Commiphora myrrha) is extracted from resin that oozes from very tough bark. It has a sharp, strong, woody scent. Ancient Greek soldiers used to carry Myrrh oil into battle for psychic protection, as well as first aid. Now we all tend to link it with Frankincense and stables and newborn babies.


Myrrh is the #1 essential oil for strengthening your nails. Nail technicians like to use it regularly on their clients to strengthen their fingernails to help stop splitting and cracking. It also helps strengthen dry skin. As a skin oil, Myrrh helps tone and rejuvenate the skin, which makes it particularly useful during the winter.
