Myrrh Essential Oil is known for its powerful anti-Bacterial and anti-Fungal benefits. This Myrrh Essential Oil is the pure resinoid so it is very thick. The more it is processed to make it liquid, the more therapeutic value is lost. You may place the bottle in warm water to make it more liquid, or remove the dropper and swirl out the oil with a clean toothpick.
