Myrrh Essential Oil


Botanical Name: Commiphora molmol
Geographic Origin: France
Method of Farming: 100% Pure – Conventional
Method of Extraction: Steam Distilled
Part of Plant: Gum



Myrrh resin is a natural gum that exudes from naturally occurring cracks in the small, thorny C. molmol busy. The ducts within the plant, hold the gum resin, and when incised can generate more resin and increase the yield of the plant. Collection is made following the incision, when the dried gum is about the size of a walnut. Myrrh Essential Oil is steam distilled from the myrrh resin. The color of the oil is pale-yellow to pale orange. It has a warm, sweet, slightly musty, earth-like, spicy aroma. 

BIBLICAL OIL: “Quoted in Scripture 156 times, uses of Myrrh Oil in the Bible included use as an ointment, an incense, an embalming ingredient, and as a skin beauty treatment by Queen Esther, in Esther 2:12. By far, Myrrh’s most common usage in the Bible is as a part of holy anointing oil.” (Dr. Josh Axe, DC, DMN, CNS. Bible Oils: 12 most revered oils & their historic uses)

FACT: The name Myrrh is derived from the Hebrew “mor” and Arabic “mur”, both derived from ‘bitter’. There is a long and rich history of Myrrh reddish-brown hardened masses of oleo gum resin being traded as perfumes, medicines, and incense.

To meet the stringent demands of the professional aromatherapist, AUROMA has drafted the following seven requirements that an essential oil needs to meet so it can be used with confidence:

  1. BIO-TYPE: Not only does an oil have to come from a defined botanical species, but from a particular genetic strain.
  2. CHEMO-TYPE: The same botanical species can often produce completely different constituents.
  3. GEO-TYPE: Oils from a particular area are often of superior quality. Examples are Rose Oil Bulgarian or Sandalwood East Indian.
  4. COMPLETE OR WHOLE: The oil should come from a single distillation and should not be rectified.
  5. WILD OR ORGANIC: Where possible, AUROMA always selects the wild growing plants for distillation. When wild types are not available, AUROMA commissions farmers who do not use pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Certified Organic options are available.
  6. EX STILL: AUROMA distills small lots of expensive oils in-house and advises farmers on distillation methods.
