Observations and Anecdotal Information
Sweet myrrh essential oil is wonderful for treating wounds, inflamed skin, athlete’s foot, and weeping eczema. It is also a wonderful preservative and regenerator for mature or aging skin.
It is also a great support for recovering from a chronic or long term illness. It may help to increase the white blood cell count. It can be diffused or used as a throat spray, to counteract a sore throat or respiratory congestion, but may need to be diluted with other oils to be diffused.
Sweet myrrh, like true myrrh, can be used to help strains, contusions, sprains, and broken bones. It can be blended with other oils and applied to the skin as a poultice; or added to grain alcohol in combination with other oils, and applied as a healing liniment.
