Myrrh – Herbal and Medicinal
GRASONVILLE, MD – Thursday morning – Myrrh is a resin from a tree and is harvested much in the same manner as frankincense. Myrrh is very antiseptic so you will see it in many products for mouth and gum health such as toothpaste, gargles and mouthwash. Myrrh is also an ingredient in healing salves and liniments for its antiseptic properties. Myrrh is used in Chinese medicine for arthritic and circulatory problems and in Ayurvedic medicine for its tonic and rejuvenation properties. Myrrh has cautions with regard to not using if you are pregnant and is not for use with children. Myrrh is also good for mature, wrinkled or aging skin. Myrrh essential oil has a warm, earth, woody scent and is used for athlete’s foot, bronchitis, chapped skin, gums, bad breath and toothaches. The scent is said to have a cooling effect on heated emotions, brings tranquility to your spirit, peace and inner stillness. So try some myrrh or myrrh essential oil and experience its healing effects on body, mind and spirit. >>Candace Listen to Candace’s podcast report – GO>>
