    Organic Sweet Myrrh essential oil

    Myrrh tree is a small thorny tree from the subtropical deserts, which produces an aromatic resin harvested by incising its trunk: just as frankincense is given to us by frankincense, it offers us myrrh. Present in all spiritualities, it was used in the composition of kyphi, a sacred perfume in ancient Egypt. Its essential oil, obtained by distillation, is amber-coloured and gives off balsamic, slightly bitter, sweet and enveloping fragrances.

    Tears of resin exude from its trunk and give off a protective aromatic aura that "cools" it at the height of the heat. It is the antidote to any "crossing of the desert"... literally and figuratively.
