Essential Oils

Myrrh essential oil has many benefits: immune enhancement, antispasmodic, antifungal, astringent, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial. Myrrh (Commiphora Myrrha) is extracted from resin. This essential oil is native to Egypt. Used in ancient Greece for its healing properties. Its antimicrobial properties help to prevent the growth of microbes in your body, preventing infection. This oil has been used to prevent or reduce hair loss as a result of direct application on the scalp resulting in strengthening of hair follicles. The astringent properties of the oil facilitate strengthening of gingiva (gums) and muscles, smoothing of skin, and contraction of blood vessels. Myrrh has positive effects on blood flow, mental clarity, and digestion. Direct application on the skin will also result in the relief of muscle spasms and reduction of scarring. It has been used to improve mood and enhance spirituality. Myrrh should not be used if you are pregnant due to its ability to cause uterine contractions. This oil blends well with Lavender, Frankincense, Patchouli, Sandal Wood, Tea Tree, and Thyme. add another page.
