Myrrh [Commiphora myrrha]

Myrrh [Commiphora myrrha] essential oil comes from a dried resin extracted from the Commiphora myrrha tree.

Two primary active compounds found in myrrh, terpenoids and sesquiterpenes, both have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Historically, myrrh was used to treat wounds and prevent infections. Myrrh can help maintain healthy skin and soothe chapped or cracked skin.
