Myrrh Essential Oil
Myrrh is native to the Middle East, North Africa and North India. Myrrh (scientific name- Commiphora myrrha) belongs to Torchwoods family. They grow in abundance, wild and cultivated, along with the Red Sea, in Iran, Libya, Abyssinia and along the coast of Somalia. When extracted, sap from the myrrh tree, also referred to as myrrh gum eventually hardens and dries into myrrh resin. When the myrrh tree is harvested, it “bleeds” the tree sap, which then turns hard and glossy. Through steam distillation, myrrh resin is converted into an essential oil with a dry, woody aroma. It has a strong balsamic smell in which camphor can be detected. It is acrid and bitter at the same time.
