Commiphora erythraea (Burseracee)

Origin: Somalia

Also known as bisabol myrrh, it's originally from the Horn of Africa (the Harar region of southern Ethiopia and Somalia). A large tropical tree similar to myrrh, like the latter it secretes an oily gum between heartwood and bark. This gum has a distinctive, sweet, woody, rooty fragrance. It hardens and darkens on exposure to the elements.


The essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the gum resin. It tends to harden when exposed to the air. It's a yellow, slightly opalescent liquid with a warm, balmy, spicy, almost animalic fragrance. It combines well with Benzoin and Myrrh absolute oils, and with the essential oils of Bergamot, Clary sage, Coriander, Frankincense, Labdanum, Neroli, Olibanum, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Silver fir and Vetiver.

(according to
popular herbalist tradition)

Absolute oil of sweet myrrh is non-toxic and non-irritant, and has anti-spasmodic, balsamic, sedative and cicatrizant properties. It is an excellent remedy for chapped skin, pruritus and wrinkles.

A good fixative and excellent as a fragrance component in perfumes and cosmetics, it's also used as a flavouring agent in liqueurs with a vinous note.
