The essence is obtained from the distillation of the resin. The dense consistency and brown colour of the Myrrh essence suggests a more ” earthy” effect compared with that of Frankincense, although their therapeutic properties are very much similar and equally powerful.
In effects, while the Frankincense is the scent of the spiritual elevation, Myrrh helps us to harmonise the spiritual world with the material one, giving us force and optimism. It helps in a particular way the persons that fear to reveal their feelings.
Myrrh è still more powerful than Frankincense in healing mycoses and is used in aromatherapy against excessive water retention and to favour the menstrual cycle.
