Myrrh essential oil is derived from the resin of a tree called commiphora myrrha, a distinctively knotty tree native to the middle east, and is found primarily in Yemen, Arabia, and Somalia. Along with frankincense, it is one of the most widely used essential oils in the world, and its slightly smoky, dry, creamy, sweet, camphorous, and balsamic scent is often a component of incense and other exotic perfumes. The oil itself is a viscous liquid with a yellow-orange hue; it is steam distilled from the resin gum (sap) of the tree, and has a strong base fragrance note. Myrrh is often used as a fixative in perfumery. Its chemical constituents include a-pinene, eugenol, limonene, cadinene, m-cresol, cuminaldehyde, heerabolene, formic acid and various other acids.
