Wholesale Pure Myrrh Essential Oil

100% pure essential oil of Myrrh, Supercritical CO2 extract from the resin of wild grown Myrrh trees, originating in Ethiopia. The CO2 distillation process is especially effective for Frankincense and Myrrh to extract all their important components. This is wonderfully smooth, rich Myrrh essential oil variety. Our Myrrh Oil is available from sample size up to 1 kg or more.


Myrrh trees, native to northern India and North Africa, grow up to 10 meters in height, have sturdy, knotted branches, trifoliate aromatic leaves, and produce small white flowers.


The trunk exudes a natural oleoresin when pierced, and the pale yellow liquid hardens into reddish-brown droplets known as Myrrh. Only a certain amount of the resin is taken from each tree to ensure their continued health. The oil is a pale yellowish amber, oily liquid distilled (using carbon dioxide) from the resin of Myrrh trees wild grown in Ethiopia.

Aromatherapy Notes

This supercritical CO2 distillation of Myrrh results in a warm, sweet floral top note, a slightly medicinal and herbaceous middle note and balsamic, slightly spicy undertones.

Traditional Uses

One of the first aromatic substances valued on a purely sensual level, Myrrh's first medicinal use was documented some 3,700 years ago. Its extraction from the solitary tree in the desert represents strength in harsh conditions. Myrrh oil is anti-inflammatory, stimulating and strengthening, especially to the pulmonary system. It is particularly helpful when used to heal states where there is wasting or degeneration, such as indolent wounds and ulcers, gangrene, pyorrhoea, tuburculosis or other wasting disease of the lungs. In China it was used for arthritis, menstrual problems, wounds and hemorrhoids. In Western medicine, it began as combating asthma, coughs, colds, sore throat, sore gums, toothaches and mouth ulcers.
