Part of a regular series of posts about essential oils. All information here is for information only, and oils should be used in consultation with a trained professional. Never take essential oils internally.

As we are still in the festive season I thought this month I would talk about Myrrh. It comes from the dried resin of the Commiphora myrrha tree, and is native to the Middle East and Northern Africa. It has a long history of use, including as part of the embalming process in Ancient Eygpt, and to help Greek soldiers feet to heal

Name- Commiphora myrrha

Contraindications- None.

Uses/good for- Myrrh is good for respiratory problems, especially coughs and colds, and can relieve congestion. It also supports the digestive system, and can help with upset tummies, indigestion, and diarrhoea. It can also help wounds heal faster.
