More information

Myrrh essential oil comes from the resin of a small, very thorny tree that grows naturally in the southern Arabian Peninsula, Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan and the Republic of Djibouti.

It was introduced for myrrh production in India, Pakistan and Thailand.


The branches are twisted, gnarled with sharp needles.

Myrrh is a resinous gum that naturally oozes from the trunk, and this is incised to activate the flow.


Traditionally myrrh is used for perfumes, incense and embalming, myrrh symbolizes suffering.

It was one of the three gifts brought by the Magi to the child Jesus (gold, frankincense and myrrh).

Myrrh is an ancient medicine from ancient Egypt.

Myrrh gives off a pleasant, camphorous, spicy and warm scent like an animal smell.

In mythology: Myrrha, pregnant by her father, was driven out and found refuge in Arabia, Aphrodite changed her body into a tree and her blood into sap, Adonis was born from its trunk, from her tears flow the tears of myrrh.
