Commiphora Wildii Essential Oil
$11.50 – $22.00
The Commiphora wildii oil smells exactly like the fresh omumbiri resin, it is a beautiful oil. The oil is a pale yellow – almost colourless. It is smooth and round with no sharp notes, yet delightfully fresh and uplifting.
If you compare it to Commiphora myrrha, or what is known as the true myrrh oil, it has none of the spicey sharpness that is so characteristic of myrrh. It has rather more in common with the citrusness that one finds in Frankincense. To my nose it also has a beautiful earthy smokiness to it, which is a characteristic of Omumbiri that I have come to really love.
