THE HEALING GIFTS OF MYRRH ESSENTIAL OIL
The scientific studies that have been carried out on myrrh have proven it has antioxidant, astringent, anti-tumoral, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, antiviral, and analgesic (pain relieving) benefits.
Without getting too heavily into the chemistry of essential oils, two of the most active compounds found in myrrh are known as terpenoids and sesquiterpenes. Inside the body these two compounds have some vastly interesting functions. They are highly anti-inflammatory, and potent antiseptics.
