Aromatherapist Recommendations:

  • Place 1 drop each of Myrrh, Benzoin and Lavender in a bowl of boiling water. Drape a towel across your head and shoulders and inhale the vapours for a few minutes.
  • Try blending 1 drop of Myrrh, 2 drops of Geranium and 1 drop of Peppermint in 10ml of Coconut oil to use as a massage oil on neglected feet.
  • Myrrh is extremely viscous, and therefore more difficult to use. We use a larger dropper for this oil, but with time it may solidify. The only solution is to warm the oil gently in the hands before use, and to be patient!
  • Contraindications: Non toxic and non irritant in prescribed doses.
  • Did you know: The ancient Hebrews would drink Myrrh mixed with wine before religious ceremonies, this was thought to raise their consciousness.
  • Chakra: Crown & Base.
  • Chinese Element: Earth (& Metal).
