Myrrh oil comes from the Commiphora myrrha tree, a thorny bush in the same family as frankincense and elemi. The resin gum is wild harvested from the trees by incisions that are made in the bark and the gum resin is collected after it has dried for a few weeks. The resinoid oil differs slightly from the essential oil in that it is a deeper, richer & more aromatically refined than the essential oil.
This myrrh resinoid oil is not pre-diluted. It is viscous & sticky at 100% strength. It will be easier to work with if warmed gently in a bain-marie or diluted to 50% in ethanol or triethyl citrate (TEC). If you have trouble dissolving it in a fixed oil, I recommend gently warming the resinoid and fixed oil and combining both materials while warm. Stir gently & continuously until mixture cools. The aroma is resinous, warm, incense with spicy licorice & rubbery mushroom-like notes with a sweet woody balsamic drydown. Suitable for fine perfumery.
