Frankincense, Sandalwood, Cypress, Juniper Berry, Red Mandarin, Geranium, Patchouli, Thyme, Peppermint, Spearmint, Wintergreen, Lavender, Pine, Pine Needles, Cinnamon Bark, Clove Bud, Ginger Root, Nutmeg, Coriander, Cardamom, Lemongrass, Palmarosa, Elemi, Rose, Rosewood

About Myrrh

How to Use Myrrh


*Please note: With any recipes involving bath or massage blends, always test on a small part of your skin first before using all over your body. Please be sure your skin can handle the blend before being covered in it.

A Soothing Blend

Massage formula into the chest using slow, clockwise strokes.

Relaxing Foot Bath

Fill a basin with warm/hot water, add formula. Soak feet and enjoy for at least 15 minutes.

Nail Cream

Combine all ingredients except the Myrrh and Sandalwood in a double boiler. Heat gently until melted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir for a minute and add essential oils while stirring. Put in a clean container. Close when completely cool. Label and keep out of the light. Massage a small amount into nails and cuticles 3 times a week.
