10 Proven Myrrh Oil Benefits & Uses

Myrrh oil

Myrrh Oil Benefits & Uses

Myrrh is most commonly known as one of the gifts (along with gold and frankincense) the three Wise Men brought to Jesus in the New Testament. It was actually mentioned in the bible 152 times! Myrrh was important in biblical times as it was used as a spice, a natural remedy, or to purify the dead.(1)

Myrrh oil is still commonly used today as a remedy for a variety of ailments. Researchers have become interested in myrrh due to its potent antioxidant activity and potential as a cancer treatment. It has also been shown to be effective in fighting certain types of parasitic infections.


What is Myrrh?

Myrrh is a resin, or sap-like substance, that comes from a tree called Commiphora myrrha, common in Africa or the Middle East. Myrrh is botanically related to Frankincense, and is one of the most widely used essential oils in the world.

The myrrh tree is distinctive due to its white flowers and knotted myrrh treetrunk. At times, the tree has very few leaves due to the dry desert conditions where it grows. It can sometimes take on an odd and twisted shape due to the harsh weather and wind.

In order to harvest myrrh the tree trunks must be cut into to release the resin. The resin is allowed to dry and begins to look like tears all along the tree trunk. The resin is then collected and the essential oil is made from the sap via steam distillation.

Myrrh oil has a smoky, sweet or sometimes bitter smell. The word myrrh comes from the Arabic word “murr” meaning bitter. The oil is a yellowish, orange color with a viscous consistency. It is commonly used as a base for perfume and other fragrances.

Two primary active compounds are found in myrrh, called terpenoids and sesquiterpenes, both of which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.(2) Sesquiterpenes specifically also have an effect on our emotional center in the hypothalamus, helping us remain calm and balanced. Both of these compounds are under investigation for their anticancer, antibacterial benefits as well as other potential therapeutic uses.(3)


Myrrh Oil History

Myrrh essential oil has been used for thousands of years in traditional healing therapies and in religious ceremonies. Common myrrh oil uses historically, include:

  • Fragrance
  • Embalming
  • Flavoring for food
  • Treating hay fever
  • As an antiseptic to clean and heal wounds
  • As a paste to help stop bleeding

The Chinese frequently used myrrh as a medicine, and it remains a part of traditional Chinese medicine to this day. The main myrrh oil use by the Egyptians was for embalming and the Jews used it to make the holy anointing oil that was used in worship services.(4)

The most common historical myrrh oil use was to burn the resin over hot coals. This would release a mysterious, spiritual presence into any room before a religious ceremony. It has also been used in aromatherapy for its meditative quality or for prayer, usually in combination with frankincense.

The smell of myrrh has been traditionally seen as a symbol of suffering, burned at funerals or other sad events. But, at times myrrh is blended with citrus oils to help produce a more uplifting aroma. These lighter blends have been used to help promote inspiration and emotional insight.


Myrrh Oil Benefits

Myrrh oil has many potential benefits, although further research is needed to determine exact mechanisms of how it works and dosages for therapeutic benefits. Here are some of the main benefits of myrrh oil use:

1. Potent Antioxidant

A 2010 study in the journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology found that myrrh could protect against liver damage due to its high antioxidant capacity. Although this particular study was conducted with rabbits, there is some potential for uses in humans also.(5)


Cancer cell attacked by lymphocytes

2. Anti-Cancer Benefits

Myrrh has also been found to have anti-cancer benefits. A 2011 found that myrrh was able to reduce the proliferation or replication of human cancer cells. Researchers found that myrrh inhibited growth in eight different types of cancer cells, specifically gynecological cancers. Although further research is needed to determine exactly how to use myrrh for cancer treatment, this initial research is promising.(6)


3. Anti-Bacterial and Anti-Fungal Benefits

Historically, myrrh was used to treat wounds and prevent infections. It can still be used in this manner on minor skin irritations such as athlete’s foot, ring worm, and acne. Apply a few drops to a clean towel first before applying it directly to the skin.


Giardia Parasite

4. Anti-Parasitic

A medication has been developed using myrrh as a treatment for fascioliasis infection, a parasite that has been infecting humans worldwide. This parasite is generally transmitted by ingesting aquatic algae and other plants. A medication made with myrrh was able to decrease symptoms of the infection, as well as a drop in parasite egg count found in the feces.(7)


 5. Skin Health

Myrrh can help maintain healthy skin. It can help soothe chapped or cracked skin. It is commonly added to skin care products to help with moisturizing and also for fragrance. Ancient Egyptians used it to prevent aging and maintain healthy skin.


 6. Relaxation

Myrrh is commonly used in aromatherapy for massages. It can also be added to a warm bath or applied directly to the skin.


Myrrh Oil Benefits


Myrrh Oil Uses

Essential oil therapy has been used for thousands of years and is the practice of using oils for their health benefits. Each essential oil has its own unique benefit and can be incorporated as an alternative treatment to a variety of ailments.(8)

Generally, oils are inhaled, sprayed in the air, massaged into the skin, and at times taken by mouth. Fragrances are strongly connected to our emotions and memories as our scent receptors are located next to the emotional centers in our brain, the amygdala and hippocampus.

Generally myrrh oil uses are similar to using other aromatherapy oils:

Diffuser for room

1. Diffuse or Inhale It

You can purchase an essential oil distiller to use throughout the house when you are trying to achieve a certain mood. Or add a few drops to hot water and inhale the steam. Myrrh oil can also be inhaled when you are sick to help improve the symptoms of bronchitis, colds, or coughs.

2. Apply it Directly to the Skin

It is best to mix myrrh with carrier oils such as jojoba, almond, or grape seed oil before applying it to the skin. It can also be mixed with an unscented lotion and used directly on the skin. Due to its antioxidant properties, it is great for antiaging, skin rejuvenation, or healing of wounds.

herbal compress3. Use as a Cold Compress

Myrrh oil has many healing properties, therefore add a few drops to a cold compress and apply it directly to any infected or inflamed area for relief. It is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and helps reduce swelling and inflammation.

4. Take it Internally

Use caution when taking essential oils internally. A common use is to use it as a mouthwash to help prevent dental infections. Although the FDA has approved myrrh as a safe food additive, taking concentrated forms or high doses can have unwanted side effects. It is best to ask your doctor or a licensed healthcare provider to avoid any complications.

You can also use myrrh to make various natural skin care products when it is blended with other ingredients. For example, consider making homemade frankincense and myrrh lotion to help heal and tone the skin.

It can also be blended with other essential oils to create a new scent. It blends well with citrus oil, such as bergamot, grapefruit, or lemon to help lighten up its fragrance.(9)

Myrrh oil can help promote tissue repair, clear toxins, and prevent infection. It has several therapeutic properties, therefore it can be beneficial for healing of specific ailments. Myrrh oil uses for therapeutic purposes include:

5. Relief for Upper Respiratory Problems

It can work as an expectorant to help relieve the symptoms of coughs and cold. It can be used to relieve congestion and help reduce phlegm.

 6. Decrease in Digestive Problems

Another myrrh oil use is to help relieve digestive problems such as stomach upset, diarrhea, and indigestion.

7.  Helps Prevent Gum Disease and Mouth Infections

Due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, myrrh can help relieve inflammation of the mouth and gums caused by diseases such as gingivitis and mouth ulcers. It can also be used as mouth rinse to prevent gum disease. It can also freshen your breath and commonly used as an ingredient in mouthwash and toothpaste.

8.  Helps Treat Hypothyroidism

Myrrh is a natural remedy for hypothyroidism, or a low functioning thyroid. Since it helps reduce stress, it can also help decrease stress on an overtaxed thyroid. Put 2-3 drops directly onto the thyroid area daily to help decrease symptoms.(10)

9. May Help Treat Skin Cancer

As discussed above, myrrh is being studied for its potential anti-cancer benefits. It has been shown to be beneficial for skin cancer. Consider using it in addition to other traditional treatments, if you have been diagnosed with skin cancer. Apply a few drops per day directly on to the cancer site, always testing a small area first.(11)

Myrrh can help strengthen the body’s cells by acting as an astringent. It was used traditionally to help stop bleeding. Due to its astringent effects, it may also help prevent hair loss by strengthening the roots in the scalp.

10. Treatment for Ulcers and Wounds

Gastritis, Stomach Ulcers

Myrrh has the power to increase the function of white blood cells, critical for wound healing. It was found to decrease the incidence of ulcers and improve their healing time, in one 2010 study published in the Journal of Immunotoxicology. (12)

A primary myrrh oil use is as a fungicide or antiseptic. It can help reduce fungal infections such as athlete’s foot or ring worm, when applied directly to the affected area. It can also be used on small scrapes and wounds to prevent infection.


Myrrh Oil Uses


Myrrh Side Effects

 Myrrh does have some side effects that need to be considered before using it therapeutically. As always, it is best to speak to your doctor or trusted healthcare provider first.

Since one of the most common myrrh oil uses is topical, people with sensitive skin should be cautious. Myrrh has been found to cause dermatitis, or inflammation of the skin, in some people. Always test it first in a small area before applying it all over the skin to make sure you don’t have any allergic reaction.(13)

  • If taken internally, myrrh may cause stomach upset and diarrhea. Although it is generally not serious, chronic diarrhea can lead do dehydration, so discontinue its use if you are experiencing gastrointestinal problems.
  • Pregnant women should avoid taking myrrh because it may enhance uterine contractions. 
  • Another potential side effect of myrrh is heart irregularities and lowered blood pressure, although this is mostly seen at high doses of more than 2-4 grams per day. Anyone with a medical condition related to the heart should ask a doctor before using myrrh oil.
  • Myrrh may lower blood sugar, therefore it is not recommended for people with diabetes or other blood sugar conditions. Since it interacts with blood glucose it is also not recommended for people undergoing surgery and it is best to stop its use at least 2 weeks before surgery.
  • Myrrh oil is not recommended for people using anticoagulants such as Warfarin as it may have potential interactions with this medication. It is also not recommended for people on diabetes medication, as there is a potential for a drug interaction.

With all these myrrh benefits and uses, there is sure to be many ways that myrrh oil will benefit you!

    If myrrh can help lower blood sugar, why should you NOT use it if your blood sugar is high?

      As a nurse, a few potential reasons for not taking myrrh if you are diabetic is that the potential for an unsafe drop in combination with your insulin. Or the interaction with the insulin you are taking for your diabetes.

  2. Theresa DiBari says:

    Where do you buy your essential oils?

  3. Theresa Fradette says:

    I use doTERRA EOs & I’m asking about Myrrh. It is a thick oil & it clogs the reducer when I try to count out the drops. I also have to clean the threads on the bottle & inside the cap. The Myrrh seems to be crusting up as if it’s drying up making the cap hard to open the next time.
    Tho I keep the bottle closed tight, I’m wondering if there is a solution to prevent the oil fm clogging the reducer cap (& prevent oil fm forming the drops). I have tho’t about adding FCO but then the EO is “diluted” & I don’t know if it will fix the problem … therefore I don’t want to waste a bottle of oil just trying it.
    I’ve also tho’t about “reaming” the reducer cap hole some …
    Any suggestions? TY, TMF

    • Maybe try wiping off the reducer after each use. It is thick so it may take a bit for it to come through each time. Otherwise you can take the reducer off and use an eye dropper each time

    • Shannon Flower says:

      You may consider switching to Young living EO!

    • Tina says:

      I use Young Living and it does the same thing. I line the threads with Vaseline. Hope this helps

    • Marj says:

      I recently purchased myrrh essential oil from doTerra and the oil I received is not very thick at all. Just curious if anyone else noticed this??

      • Michelle says:

        I use doTerra as well and the myrrh is thick and sticky. Did you buy directly from doTerra or a wellness advocate for doTerra? If you did not get it shipped directly from doTerra it could have been adulterated.

    • Rebecca says:

      My solution – put the Myrrh oil in a dropper bottle. No sticky lids because the oil stays at the bottom of the bottle. Problem has not recurred. Good luck.

      • Annabelle says:

        DO NOT switch from doTERRA to Young Living. From an oil stand point, do a smell test comparison, trust me, you will have no problem picking the superior product!!! From a company philosophy and humanitarian stand point, doTERRA wins hand down!!! Don’t take my word, simply do the research

      • Nicole says:

        Annabelle, the only reason DoTerra wins in a “smell” test is because they do “complete distillations” on their products…. the more you distill a product the sharper it smells but the closer to a fragrance oil it becomes.

    • Greg says:

      I’ll bet on the bottle it says “may need warming” as the oil is thick, this is a sign of good oils. Solution to the crusting etc may be a good idea to keep it in a warm place IE cupboard in your lounge etc? Hope this helps.. P.S. I had to warm mine on a radiator to thin it out, IE more fluid…

  4. Tammy Vires says:

    The study done in 200 was done with Sweet Myrrh Opoponax chironium. It ranked number 13. Is there a difference in types of Myrrh or does any type do the same function? I’m interested in using it with Frankincense for the treatment of my husbands lung cancer.

    • There are different types

      • San D says:

        Dr. Axein your reply, you did not answer her question regarding Sweet Mmrrh Opoponax Chironium and other kinds of myrrh. What kind (name of tree) of food grade is best for internal use and best one for external use?

    • Sheryl says:

      I watched a documentary where the woman got rid of her brain tumor by using a certain variety of Frankinscense called “Boswellia Serrata.” I found an organic one on Amazon from a company called WellnesScent.” I really like their essential oils, and they are of exceptional quality. The woman put one drop on her tongue and held to the roof of her mouth every two hours. I’ve also read people are using say 30 drops of this essential oil in 1 ounce of carrier oil, like sweet almond oil and rub it on the part of the body with cancer and on the feet a few times a day. You will see how much your body can tolerate. Every body is different so experiment & research, googleing is very useful. I read if you do use it internally should be organic, and under the tongue gets it right in your blood stream & will pass the blood brain barrier, 1 drop every 2 hours. Using this as an add on to other things you are doing may prove useful? One lady noticed a difference from her first bottle from this company with her son’s tumor getting smaller and she is going back to order another bottle. They will also get you access to their free E-book on how to use the oils which was very useful. This is just info i’ve researched so far, but you’ll need to do your own as well. Whole foods has some glass bottles to put it in but im sure you can find them on line. I would only buy a reputable essential oil & make sure the bottle is 100% oil, not already mixed with a carrier oil. Hope this helps some. To your health!

  5. Lynn Millen says:

    I love using a drop with some coconut oil as a moisturizer on my face (and my husbands) in the morning. I do use Young Living Essential Oil and do not have a problem with it clogging the reducer.

    • Johanna says:

      The fact is doesn’t if left for any amount of time is actually a bad thing FYI I wouldn’t boast about that. Anyone who knows EO’s well will suspect purity issues with this oil because high quality myrrh will “crust up” so to speak.

  6. Sue says:

    Thanks for any info you can give!

  16. Amber Gray says:

    I use the Tierra Essentials diffuser…it also can be used as a night light or light can be turned off. Uses tap water and only 2-3 drops of an oil or blend of oils. It can be set for 4 or 8 hours….I set it for 4 hours to fall asleep and stay asleep. I love this diffuser. You can use any kind of the essential oils citrus etc.

  18. Karen says:

    The myrrh that I use comes straight from a producer in Oman. It is food grade and a very thick, sticky, dark paste that tastes very bitter. I have just started using 2 drops under the tongue twice a day (along with frankincense from the same producer). I’m using this to maintain general good health and hopefully as a preventative measure. I hope this is safe to use on an ongoing basis?

    • Heather says:

      Hi Karen, I’m also in OMAN and am very interested in where you are purchasing your myrrh and frankincense from. Can you let me know please?
      Thanks!

    I’d like to try myrhh for a possible gum/tooth infection. I have no pain – just a suspicious spot. What is the safest way to apply it directly to one specific spot on my gums? I am thinking of starting with just 1 drop, but dont know how much oil to mix it into. 1 tsp? 1 Tbsp? I plan to try olive or coconut oil. Any other suggestions?

  25. Jyburt says:

    2 weeks the dentist took a X-ray of my husbands mouth and told him he had stage 3 and 4 gum disease. For the last week and a half he used two to three drops in a small amount of water and garbled with this mixture several times a day. Today another X-ray was taken and he was told he had no gum disease. Wow a week and a half nothing medically would do this for sure. We are a believer. We used 100 present myrthe oil.

It can be set for 4 or 8 hours….I set it for 4 hours to fall asleep and stay asleep. I love this diffuser. You can use any kind of the essential oils citrus etc.

    The myrrh that I use comes straight from a producer in Oman. It is food grade and a very thick, sticky, dark paste that tastes very bitter. I have just started using 2 drops under the tongue twice a day (along with frankincense from the same producer). I’m using this to maintain general good health and hopefully as a preventative measure. I hope this is safe to use on an ongoing basis?

    • Heather says:

      Hi Karen, I’m also in OMAN and am very interested in where you are purchasing your myrrh and frankincense from. Can you let me know please?
      Thanks!

    No myrhh is shipped from Oman. They consume all they can produce. Any claiming to be from Oman is fake.

    I’d like to try myrhh for a possible gum/tooth infection. I have no pain – just a suspicious spot. What is the safest way to apply it directly to one specific spot on my gums? I am thinking of starting with just 1 drop, but dont know how much oil to mix it into. 1 tsp? 1 Tbsp? I plan to try olive or coconut oil. Any other suggestions?

  25. Jyburt says:

    2 weeks the dentist took a X-ray of my husbands mouth and told him he had stage 3 and 4 gum disease. For the last week and a half he used two to three drops in a small amount of water and garbled with this mixture several times a day. Today another X-ray was taken and he was told he had no gum disease. Wow a week and a half nothing medically would do this for sure. We are a believer. We used 100 present myrthe oil.
