          We are pleased to offer this steam distilled Myrrh essential oil. It is a different species than Myrrh CO2 and maybe even more important, they are extracted by different methods. A big difference between this steam distilled oil and the CO2 extract that we offer is that the steam distilled oil is almost completely oil soluble. Myrrh CO2 or absolute are not easily oil soluble and requires more skill to blend. This oil has a medium consistency, tan color and is less sweet than some myrrh essential oils however, it is considered a higher quality oil because it is produced from top quality resin tears. Ethiopia has a reputation of being a top quality producer of Myrrh. The raw materials used make this a special “Select” oil.
