essential oil is produced from resin extracted from the Myrrh tree (or shrub) found in the Middle
East. The trunk of the Myrrh tree yields a natural oleoresin when pierced, and the pale yellow liquid
hardens into reddish-brown drops known as Myrrh (the tree remains healthy after harvest). The
oil is a pale yellow/amber oily liquid with a warm, sweet-balsamic, slightly spicy-medicinal scent.
The supercritical CO2 distillation results in a beautiful, smooth and complex aroma ~ much more alluring than any steam distilled variety we've come across. A customer had this to say about this wonderful oil: "Today I received my 1 ounce of essential Myrrh oil. I am have NEVER experienced such amazing quality in ANY oil I have ever used! I will never use any other source for my essential oil needs."
by the new testament, Myrrh resin was one of the gifts brought by the Magi to the baby Jesus (the others
being gold and Frankincense).
Myrrh's first medicinal use was documented some 3700 years ago.

from the solitary tree in the desert represents strength in harsh conditions.
