Quick Overview

Synergy Essentials' 100% pure essential oil of Myrrh, Supercritical is CO2 distilled from the resin of wild grown Myrrh tree, originating in Ethiopia. The CO2 distillation process is especially effective for Frankincense and Myrrh to extract all their important components. This is wonderfully smooth, rich Myrrh essential oil variety.

Botanical Name: Commiphora myrrha

Myrrh trees, native to northern India and North Africa, grow up to 10 meters in height, have sturdy, knotted branches, trifoliate aromatic leaves and produce small white flowers. The trunk exudes a natural oleoresin when pierced, and the pale yellow liquid hardens into reddish-brown droplets known as Myrrh. Only a certain amount of the resin is taken from each tree to ensure their continued health.

About the Oil
The oil is a pale yellowish amber, oily liquid distilled (using carbon dioxide) from the resin of Myrrh trees wild grown in Ethiopia.
Aromatherapy Notes
This supercritical CO2 distillation of Myrrh results in a warm, sweet floral top note, a slightly medicinal and herbaceous middle note and balsamic, slightly spicy undertones.
Traditional Uses
One of the first aromatic substances valued on a purely sensual level, Myrrh's first medicinal use was documented some 3,700 years ago. Its extraction from the solitary tree in the desert represents strength in harsh conditions. In China it was used for treatment of arthritis, menstrual problems, wounds and hemorrhoids. In Western medicine, it began as a cure for asthma, coughs, colds, sore throat, sore gums, toothaches and mouth ulcers.
