❣️❣️❣️ Myrrh is a true GIFT we are blessed to have access to. A little Myrrh goes a long way, making it a valuable investment for your natural health cabinet…
With it’s warm, uplifting earthy aroma, and so many practical wellness benefits – everything from skin to chasing away infection, Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) is one of the oldest documented aromatic plants used!
👑 For centuries it was one of the world’s most desired and expensive commodities, more valued than gold by weight. Kings and Queens would do almost anything to have their Myrrh! Did you know that Myrrh was more valuable by weight than gold or Frankincense at the time of Jesus’ birth? Like Frankincense, Myrrh EO is distilled from resinous drops which tear from cuts in the bark of the tree.
📕 The #1 oil in the Holy Anointing Oil ‘recipe’ given to Moses for anointing and cleansing everything…Myrrh is the most mentioned of any oil in ancient Scripture…notably in relation to beauty, and romance.
😊 Super high in important Sesquiterpene molecules, Myrrh impacts the limbic brain / hormonal system, is uplifting, promotes spiritual awareness, and is known to strengthen the mother-child bond, invoking feelings of safety and security.
Not surprising Myrrh was one of three gifts that wise men presented to Mary, Joseph, and infant son Jesus. Mothers’ of the day commonly applied Myrrh to prevent stretch marks, combat thrush and fungal infections, and to deal with tooth & gum infections, gingivitis and mouth ulcers.
Historically, Myrrh was a “must-have” especially in nomadic cultures…it was used as incense, for embalming, for leprosy, syphilis, herpes, digestion, wounds, and general skin care.
Today Myrrh is scientifically noted for its powerful antioxidant, and analgesic or anesthetic properties. Myrrh may combat inflammation, bacteria, viral infection, and parasites.
Emotionally, Myrrh is known as the “Mother of Oils” and traditionally as “The Oil of Mother Earth”. In terms of the impact we now know aromatic plant molecules have on the limbic / emotional brain via our olfactory system – Myrrh may help address disturbances with the mother-child bond (related to adoption, birth trauma, experiences of abandonment, or other childhood issues). “Like the warmth of a mother’s love for her child, Myrrh assists individuals in feeling safe and secure. When the mother-child bond has been disrupted…feelings of trust are replaced with feelings of fear and a belief that the world is unsafe. Myrrh assist individuals in letting go of fear.” [Emotional Healing With Essential Oils, Manual 1: Introduction, © 2012. Enlighten Alternative Healing, LLC]
