In historic times Myrrh was brought to the West by overland karawan. Today Myrrh oil has become an aromatherapy staple with proven analgesic components.
This Myrrh oil is produced by carbon dioxide extraction of Myrrh resin. Myrrh resin has been used since antiquity for medicinal, ritual and spiritual purposes. Western science has confirmed the analgesic properties of some of its key sesquiterpene components. This oil is extracted from resin collected in Oman.
Myrrh has also been found effective in the prevention of squalene per oxidation during sun exposure (1) as well as being anti-hyperglycemic (2).
