Words by Anny Schneider

Also called sweet myrrh, its camphorated and resinous fragrance from this shrub of the African desert is often added as a base note in great scents.

Used in case of muscle pain, opoponax acts as an analgesic but also as antiseptic against wounds and wounds.

It is also an effective hepatorenal drainer to be applied in an oil on the regions of organs to be decongested.

Like frankincense and myrrh, the essential oil from this resin disinfects, purifies and helps lift the mind.

Origin of this essential oil

This Opoponax essential oil from Ethiopia is distilled from the oleoresin of the tree.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.
