Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. So now, I am in Arizona, I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal biz!! So we now have Herbs 4 Health!! Numerous herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....supplements....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.
The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

Myrrh,.... The Ancient Resin
Did you know they burned myrrh with frankincense in biblical times to help purify the air & prevent spread of contagious disease, including ones caused by bacteria??? It is botanically related to the lovely frankincense.
Myrrh is loaded with healing terpenoids which have a reputation as potent healers which even protect the tree from oxidative stress.
Every day science uncovers more of myrrh's potential healing capabilities. It's properties include: antiseptic, anesthetic, anti-tumor, anti-parasitic, anti-oxidant, wound healing & anti-microbial. It's good for oral health, skin infections, inflammation, intestinal health, pain relief, stimulates the immune system, athlete's foot, protects the liver, helps with low thyroid & digestive issues. It can help to calm & relax the mind. There is ongoing research that it fights cancer & in low dilution, myrrh can treat lyme disease as well.
Always dilute before applying to the skin. Do not swallow when using for oral health issues. Avoid if pregnant. Do not take internally. Myrrh may interact with anti-coagulants, may lower blood sugar & blood pressure as well. Be cautious when using it.
