essential oil
Myrrh essential oil is produced from the dried resin of a species of tree native to the Middle East. For centuries, the oil has been used for various ceremonial purposes and rituals, most notably those of the ancient Egyptians. The oil is described as a holy oil in the Ebers Papyrus, a text dating to 1550 BCE. Myrrh was also a key ingredient in the embalming process.

The oil contains numerous active compounds, including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant terpenes. Other components include alpha pinene, limonene and eugenol.
