Myrrh Essential Oil

Commiphora myrrha | Essential Oil
Availability: In Stock

Myrrh Essential Oil (Commiphora myrrha) is also commonly known as African Myrrh, Herabol Myrrh, Somali Myrrhor, and Common Myrrh. Myrrh Essential Oil has a medium-strength rich, balsamic, warm, and earthy aroma presenting a base fragrance note.

We included Myrrh Essential Oil as part of the Rocky Mountain Oils Skin Care and Mood collections. Myrrh oil may provide a slight cooling effect on the skin, and it’s also great to help preserve that youthful glow when applied topically.

Add to a diffuser or aroma inhaler in meditation settings to bring a sense of calm to the mind, while enhancing inner peace. Myrrh is also a wonderful oil to use when you feel emotionally stuck.

Is your Myrrh thick? Many components play a part in the viscosity (thickness) of an oil. Thicker oils typically come from the resin or root of the tree. Some oils grow thicker and more potent as they age. Because essential oils are extracted from living plants that do not follow an exact chemical formula or an exact growing pattern, each batch of the same oil can vary as well.

If you’re having problems with your oils dropping from the bottle, here are some quick tips:

1. These droppers also work best when held horizontally (to the side) instead of vertically (upside down).
2. Warm the bottle by holding in hands, placing in a bowl of warm water (to prevent damaging the label put the bottle in a ziplock bag before placing in water)
3. Widen the holes on the orifice reducer with a sterile pin
4. Take the orifice reducer off of the bottle and use a pipette.

Just Like Myrrh
Please note that myrrh is viscous and will need a pipette to remove from the bottle. It does not drop well, when mixing oils. Myrrh has a very earthy scent to it, and is certainly enhanced using other oils. Since I use my oils medicinally, I am not looking from something to wear. It can tone down other scents, often making the final combination more subtle. This is expensive, but a little goes a long way. With essential oils, purity of product is important.

Myrrh is such a treat!
This is my first bottle of Myrrh oil. I love it! Very subtle initially, but strong undertones. Pairs well with Frankincense.

I had not used the myrrh oil for weeks and decided to use it today. I had a hard time opening the bottle cap and my husband finally got it opened. I attempted to use a damp cloth to clean the edge of the bottle so I would not have trouble opening the bottle next time. It is really difficult to get the oil built up off. Any advice? Can I use rubbing alcohol?

BEST ANSWER: Using a damp hot towel, carrier oil or vinegar an be used to assist in cleaning the rim of the bottle. Thanks!
Is myrrh no longer available at $22.50? When you do a search, it comes up, but then switches to a $45 bottle.
Joyce M on Mar 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Our 5ml Bottle of Myrrh is $22.50 and the 15ml Bottle is $45. Under the price on the product page, there is a Size selection, if you click on that it will show you the prices for the 15ml and the 5ml.
