Help Your Skin Look Younger And Smoother With Nature’s Amazing Myrrh Essential Oil
You have probably heard about myrrh from Bible stories, as it is famous for being one of the precious gifts offered by the three wise men to the infant Jesus (along with gold and frankincense). Myrrh has a long and storied history, and is one of the most popular and effective essential oils for boosting and maintaining appearance and health.
Myrrh essential oil soothes the skin and promotes a smooth, youthful-looking complexion. It helps prevent the signs of aging and is known for soothing cracked or chapped skin. You will find it as a primary ingredient in many skin care products for these reasons.
For applying to the skin, best practice is to dilute myrrh with a carrier oil. Some good choices for a carrier oil are jojoba or grape seed oil. It may also be blended with an unscented skin lotion and applied directly to the skin. Known for its powerful antioxidant properties, myrrh essential oil is great for anti-aging treatment, restoring skin health, or healing of wounds.
Among other uses, myrrh oil also possesses natural cleansing properties that help protect against oral decay. In fact, the oil can promote oral health and relieve a sore throat.
General Methods of Application
Those who have sensitive skin should consider diluting the myrrh essential oil with a carrier oil. Be careful about getting the oil in your eyes, ears, or on other sensitive areas. Those who are nursing, pregnant, or receiving medical attention should consult their physician before use. Additionally, make sure to store the oil away from children.
