Sometimes in you life, you crave for some MAGIC to happen. ⠀

When I am stressed and need a break, I like to go OUTSIDE for a walk. Magical nature, here I come!⠀

Recently, I went with my kids to a local cactus garden. We admired the beautiful blooms that these thorny plants produce, despite their tough natural habitats. ⠀

Mother Nature is familiar with STRESS. ⠀

In fact, some of the highest-valued natural ingredients come from plants that grow under the roughest circumstances!⠀

Now, let me tell you about the ACCIDENT that happened: While we walked to the garden, my older daughter slipped and fell… ⠀

No, she did not land on TOP a cactus….she got a really bad RASH from slipping in the gravel though. OUCH!⠀

When we got home, I got out Myrrh essential oil. WHAT??? The Myrrh that is being used for religious purposes and for incense?⠀

Myrrh has anti-bacterial properties, heals infections, and soothes your skin. MAGIC! ⠀

While I took care of my daughter’s wound, I told her about MYRRH and how it has been used for centuries to heal skin.⠀

The Myrrh tree is a small tree that is native to regions in Africa and Arabia. It produces a sap that hardens into a resin known as Myrrh.⠀

Through steam distillation, myrrh resin is converted into an essential oil with a dry, woody aroma. MYRRH essential oil!⠀

Making a homemade healing balm is a great way to bring moisture and health back to dry or cracked skin.

This Magical Myrrh Healing Balm smells AMAZING and heals with the power of Nature. ENJOY!⠀
