Chances are you’ve heard of Myrrh before.
Referenced in the Bible as the Balm of Gilead, ancient records show that Myrrh was considered so valuable that it was valued at its weight in gold.
Derived from the gummy resin of the Myrrh tree, it has been used for both internal and internal benefits for centuries. It has a warm and unique aroma.
Myrrh promotes healthy inflammatory response and supports skin healing thanks to its high percentage of sesquiterpenes.
