Ancient records show that Myrrh was deemed so valuable that at times it was valued at its weight in gold. Myrrh essential oil is derived from the gummy resin of the small, thorny Myrrh tree and has been used for centuries for everything from medicine to religious purposes. It has been used throughout history as a perfume, incense, and health aid. Myrrh has powerful cleansing properties, especially for the mouth and throat.
