Myrrh Essential Oil
For the time being, I am discontinuing the sale of myrrh essential oil because of the absolutely rampant adulteration in this substance. I thought the problem, which has been going on for more than a year and getting worse and worse, was finally resolved when I bought the last batch; that was good myrrh essential oil. But I just got my order from the same vendor and this is absolutely not myrrh. It smells like it has onycha in it, for one. And it is completely watery, which myrrh is not. So I am just going to hold off for a while until the drought and the civil disturbances in the production areas get better. Meanwhile, try using some real myrrh resin. You can macerate it in warm oil (especially fractionated coconut oil) and get a nice base for adding other oils to.
