Herb of the Week: Myrrh


Though we have listed Myrrh under Aromatherapy of the week in the past, here is some more info on using the whole resin itself. 

Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha)

Essential Oil: Steam distilled or CO2 Distracted

Uses: antiseptic, anti fungal, expectorant. The Resin can be used from the essential oil, gargles/rinses, and tinctures.

Quick Tip: To make a mouthwash, mix 1/2 cup distilled water, 2 dropperfuls of peppermint tincture, and .5 dropperful of Myrrh Gum tincture together. Keep in a dark bottle in a cool place.

Herb of the week is to give you a brief overview of the many plants that grace our Earth. Please research further into herbs before using these on yourself and loved ones. Especially if you are pregnant.
