myrrh is familiar to many as one of the traditional resinous gifts mentioned in the bible. its amber scent creates a warm, calming environment. myrrh is often used during meditation to create a relaxing and uplifting atmosphere.
when diffused, myrrh can help relieve nervous tension and bring about feelings of strength. it is also wonderful for helping mature skin issues such as redness and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and scars when added to a carrier oil or lotion. in an oral blend, a myrrh gargle or mouth rinse can help support gum health.
directions: to ease worry and tension, add 4 drops of palo santo, 2 drops of frankincense carteri, 2 drops of myrrh, 1 drop of mandarin, and 1 drop of neroli to your diffuser or personal inhaler. this synergy will help ease your troubled thoughts, leaving you feeling uplifted and calm.
