Mystical Myrrh Essential Oil contains the same otherworldly aroma and quintessence that made it a star of so many ancient civilizations. In Heliopolis, Egypt, incense was burned to mark the sun’s travel across the sky and myrrh was offered at high noon. The ancient Egyptians used Myrrh to embalm their dead, and harnessed the same properties for the living as a beauty unguent and fragrance for the home.

Famous for being one of three precious gifts given at the birth of Jesus by the three wise men, Myrrh was considered sacred by the Jewish people. They anointed alters with this sacred sap, which was considered the epitome of purity. A gift of Myrrh Essential Oil would certainly have been a special treasure indeed.

The sacredness of Myrrh essence reminds us of the sacredness in the secular of being in the skin of human form, the presence of spirit, and the body’s magnificent ability to revive itself, given the gift of life.
