Origin: Somalia / Oleoresin
Myrrh oil has a deep resinoid slightly woody aroma, steam distilled from the tree sap / resin which grow naturally in North East Africa. An ancient resin from biblical times once as expensive as gold. The resin was worn as an ungent body deodorisor, placed on the head and then wrapped in a turbin by african and middle east traders. Today it is used as a fixative in high end perfumery. Anecdotally used to treat skin conditions such as sores, rashes, chapped skin and itching.
