Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) is an integral part of many spiritual rituals in various religions. And for good reason: myrrh creates a bridge between heaven and earth, and links us to our inner silence and harmony.
Myrrh is made from a resin extracted from the balsam tree. To obtain it, people cut an incision in the trunk of the balsam tree and harvest the gum that oozes out. The gum hardens when dry and forms a kind of bandage on the incision. This physical property can be found in the energy of myrrh. In fact, when inhaled, applied to the skin, or used as an auric spray, essential oil of myrrh is a wonderful balm for wounds, whether physical or subtle.
Myrrh works mainly on the upper chakras, linking the energies between sky and earth.
Try using essential oil of myrrh after doing the kind of deep spiritual or emotional work that leaves you with the sensation of a fresh scar, a wound that is just starting to heal. Myrrh’s energy provides you with the protection you need, as gently as a light, healing veil. You can combine nard or spikenard (Nardostachys jatamansi) with myrrh to reinforce this feeling of security, calm and envelopment.
Whether on the physical or subtle level, myrrh accelerates the healing of wounds and minimizes any trace of scars.
If you want to work with myrrh on the level of healing energy but lack the essential oils, you can connect to the spirit of the plant and call on its energy to guide you throughout the healing process.
Love and Light,
