Myrrh – The Oil of Mother Earth

Myrrh FCO

Myrrh Oil nurtures the soul’s relationship with its maternal mother and with the earth. This oil supports individuals who have had disturbances with the mother-child bond. Whether it’s a division between the child and the biological mother or whether it’s Mother Earth herself, Myrrh can help bridge the gap and heal the disturbance. The division or lack of attachment may be related to adaption, birth trauma, malnourishment, experiences of abandonment, or other childhood issues. Myrrh helps the soul to feel the love and nurturing presence of “mother”. Similar to the nutrient-rich colostrum found in a mother’s milk, Myrrh oil inoculates individuals from the adverse and harmful effects of the world. Like the warmth of a mother’s love for the child, Myrrh assists individuals in feeling safe and secure.

When the mother-child bond has been disrupted, the soul may lose its childlike ability to trust. Feelings of trust are replaced with feelings of fear and a belief that the world is unsafe. Myrrh assists individuals in letting go of fear. Through reestablishing a healthy connection to the earth and to one’s own mother, Myrrh rekindles trust within the soul. As the individual learns to once again live in trust, confidence in the goodness of life returns and the soul feels safer and more at home.

A few weeks ago I started to give my friends and myself (also a good friend) a hand massage. For myself, I do it every morning and sometime in the evening as well. I mostly use Balance grounding blend but a few days ago I felt like Myrrh. The calming, soothing and grounding effect of this oil is amazing. It feels like I have found my place. Another thing that I noticed is that my skin absolutely loves Myrrh. It looks really well-looked after, smooth hands which is not exactly typical for my pianist hands. Today, I even added this oil as my facial treatment with two drops of fractionated coconut oil. My face loved it, too. But the most obvious is this incredible calmness, that comes from inside, deep inside. Love my oils and what they can do to us.
