Myrrh essential oil has a long and fascinating history that dates back to ancient times. The use of myrrh resin can be traced back to the ancient Egyptians, who used it in their embalming rituals and also as an ingredient in their perfumes and cosmetics. In ancient Greece, myrrh was used for its medicinal properties, particularly for its ability to promote healing and reduce inflammation.
Myrrh essential oil is derived from the resin of the Commiphora myrrha tree, a small tree or shrub that grows in dry, rocky soil in the Arabian Peninsula and parts of Africa. The tree produces a resin that is harvested by making small incisions in the bark, which allows the resin to ooze out and harden into droplets.
The essential oil is extracted from the resin through a process of steam distillation, which produces a rich, amber-colored oil with a warm, balsamic aroma. Myrrh essential oil is known for its potent therapeutic properties, which have made it a popular ingredient in traditional medicine systems around the world.
