Limonene, a monoterpene present in myrrh resin is considered effective to treat cholesterol-containing gall stones. It can also control gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD). Thus, myrrh resin can control heartburn symptoms.

Myrrh essential oil diluted in a pure carrier oil makes an excellent massage oil for sore muscles and joints and when taken internally (must be food grade), it can alleviate headaches and migraines.

When the liver cannot eliminate dangerous substances sufficiently, they build up in the bloodstream. For example, ammonia, a by-product of protein digestion, needs to be converted into urea in the liver and eliminated via the kidneys. Accumulation of ammonia in the blood, called hyper-ammonaemia, is toxic to nerves and can lead to a weakening of brain functions known as hepatic encephalopathy. Excessive ammonia is most dangerous because it worsens the over-production of nitrogen and oxygen free radicals.

Combats Stress :

Myrrh essential oil is frequently used in aromatherapy to promote relaxation and calm stress. The scent of myrrh on its own is strong, sweet, and somewhat bitter, and earthy. It's often blended with other oils, especially citrus ones, for a less overpowering fragrance.

You can use it for stress by adding it to bathwater, using it in a diffuser, and simply diluting and applying it to your skin. You can also try a cup of one of these calming herbal teas.

Prevent Diabetes :

Good for gum health :

The anti-inflammatory properties of myrrh oil may help treat gingivitis, though more research is needed. Myrrh-containing mouthwashes promote the healing of oral wounds. It is also recommended not to use myrrh-based products for more than two weeks at a time or in large doses, as the extract could end up damaging tissue.

Help fight germs :

Myrrh is mostly used as an antiviral and antibiotic. It helps to encourage white blood cells to help your immune system fight infections and additionally has direct antimicrobial effects. It is commonly used for dealing with the common cold, respiratory infections, sore throat, ear infections, and swollen lymph nodes.

Relieve pain :

Myrrh has been used to treat pain, but research done within the past couple of decades has sought to explain why it works. Water extract made from both resins inhibited a specific neurotransmitter in mice responsible for causing pain, while yet another study conducted on mice with chronic pain found that myrrh has the potential to help patients struggling with neuropathic pain.
