  • So happy I made this purchase! In summer I will occasionally get an ingrown hair and applying diluted myrrh does the trick! It helps with inflammation and kills bacteria. This will be a staple in my oily arsenal.

  • Thanks for explaining how diffusing myrrh oil can help you feel strong and it relieves nervous tension. This would make it a great remedy to help you feel refreshed so you can focus on work. If someone is considering using this, it would probably be a good idea to consider what benefits they want and how they plan to use it in order to determine the amount to get for the best results.

  • Love using it for oil pulling along with cloves. I love oils and am hoping to become more proficient in oil uses and applications.

  • I am strongly considering this oil, and I’d love to see more recommendations for use! Thank you to those who have commented with how you use it. I thought I’d seen myrrh used somewhere for anti-fungal applications?

    1. I actually love the smell so I diffuse it with frankincense. As for anti-fungal applications, it’s not the first oil I would go to, but it would work well when added to aloe vera and other anti-fungal oils such as tea tree, oregano and lavender etc. Make sure you dilute it appropriately!

  • I can’t wait to Myrrh, I’ve been seeing several recipes with it as an ingredient and now I’m going to have to try it!

  • I love this! Bought some for a gift after getting some for myself and it was a big hit! Smells so good:). I use it with my facial moisturizer almost daily.

  • I LOVE Myrrh and was excited to see suggestions of other oils I could blend it with to diffuse. Thanks for the ideas!

  • I’m ordering this today, excited to add it to a facial Serum. What other oils would be good in a facial serum with Myrrh?

  • Just now put 100ml of myrrh resin powder in a glass jar and topped off with almond oil. Are the healing benefits going to seep into the oil like it would if the myrrh were any other dry herb?Thanks love this blog!!

  • This is on my wishlist! I have read so many wonderful things about myrrh. I can’t wait to add it to my collection!

  • Oooo, I think I have another oil to my wishlist! I am wondering if this is not kidsafe for both topical and diffusing uses?

  • I LOVE Myrrh! I use it in a face cream along with Fantastic Franks. I just ordered this a few days ago too!
