Namibian Myrrh Essential Oil is an aromatic blessing from the dry African earth that echoes the desert’s mystery and speaks of timeless beauty traditions. The plant traditionally known as Omumbiri exudes this precious resin, which is the inspiration for the Mbiri range. The resin is steam distilled to extract an essential oil known as Namibian Myrrh, which has a clean, earthy, slightly spicy fragrance that will uplift your spirit and evoke a sacred sense of calm. Namibian Myrrh is also anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory and a boon for the skin overall. All Mbiri products are 100% natural and contain certified organic ingredients.

This exquisite resin is the core inspiration for the Mbiri Range and is sustainably collected by the Himba women of Kaokoland, who have traditionally used it as a natural fragrance. It has many healing properties for body, mind and spirit. The brand is approved by Phytotrade Africa, a fair-trade initiative that promotes community enterprises throughout southern Africa.

  • Antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, calming and relaxing properties
  • High in antioxidants

Ethical, Organic Mbiri…

Create a sacred calm and happy balance: Myrrh contains compounds that can affect your hypothalamus, pituitary, and amygdala, which control your emotions and produce many important hormones in your body.

I'm so impressed with this myrrh - it's wonderful.

I have been using Myrrh oil for a while for natural pain management and inflammation. Do try and "feel" for yourself.

I have purchased this more than once - Love it!

This oil has easily without any hassles slotted into my life to help create deep sense of nurture. It has much stronger smell than I expected and I find run 100% normal out the bottle. No issues like other comments. Have added to whole family creams and all are responding with extreme happy results. ❤️

This is a good quality product andcomparatively good value for money, considering the amount.

really great product! Not oily at all. Cleared up a skin irritation that I had. I will definitely use it again

I bought this oil after reading on doshas, and I thought of adding it to my growing essential oil collection. Mmmh! It was a first to experience such a scent- it has some maturity and holiday in a cabin feeling to it, in the wild. I really feel mature
24/01/2021, By Stephanie
Very happy with the quality of this product. This oil has been a wonderful addition to my collection of essential oils which I use in my diffuser and oil burner to fill my home with uplifting scents. Also adding drops to my skincare regime.

Amazing essential oil.

Great product
03/10/2020, By Maureen
I love Mbiri products... I use the whole range and love the efficacy of them as well as the fact that they are approved by BWC. Some people have complained about the oil coming out too quickly... I am careful and don't shake the bottle without the top on and my bottle has lasted for ages. I put a drop or two on my pillow before sleep.
31/08/2020, By Angelique
absolutely love this product - well priced. Excellent to add to carrier and bath.
07/08/2020, By Julz
I add this to my face cream for a better cell turnover. Lovely glowing skin.

Best value for money. Excellent quality brand

Two drops in the bath burns the crap out of me. I’m not generally sensitive.

Baie geurige reuk. Opgewonde om die olie te gebruik. Wens net dat daar meer inligting oor die essential olie se waardes.

Smells great, just spills a lot and not much control over usage

Quality is good

Blown away
05/04/2020, By Reynard
Smells wonderful and product great, just a pity that the dropper doesn't work so well. Difficult to control the drops coming out (comes out too easy) and spills every time.

Very high quality essential oil. Love it! Beautiful scent.
18/11/2018, By Abigail
This is a great product at a good value price. Strong spicy exotic smell. Love that it comes from Namibia and that it supports a sustainable project. Many uses as listed - great all round antimicrobial, in mouth wash, sickness and adrenal support.
16/10/2018, By Ilze
So happy with this oil. Was told that myrrh makes all other oils used with it last longer and be stronger. And works magic by itself as well.
04/09/2018, By Freshnu
Lovely, got home blended with shea butter, castor oil and now I can watch my skin transform.
17/08/2018, By Jeannie
Delighted that I treated myself to this beauty. It is a gorgeous quality, special, special oil. Love.
15/08/2018, By HESTER
Lovely, and much less bitter/medicinal than ordinary myrrh. Smells great! And a nice big bottle, too.
10/08/2018, By Stephanie
This is a high quality product.
08/06/2018, By Carmen
Wonderful oil, lovely scent, it has made a significant difference to the quality of my skin
15/05/2018, By Sonica
I purchased the Mbiri Myrrh essential oils as you receive 10ml compared to the other suppliers who only pack 5ml bottles for the same price. But the whole in this little essential oil bottle is so big, it just pours out and wastes most of it. The oil would have been a winner otherwise.
28/04/2018, By Lebogang
Strong scent. Use it with my body lotion.
28/12/2017, By Colleen
Have not had the pleasure of using this product as yet, here is in hopes that i will be able to give a enlighted review once used.
25/10/2017, By Maxine
smell reminds me of my gran, very earthy, great product for scars.
07/10/2017, By Kate
This is a high quality Myrrh essential oil at a great price. Perfect in DIY perfumes and body oils especially for stretch marks and scars.
03/09/2017, By HH
I use the Myrrh oil on my skin, great for scars
14/08/2017, By Jenna
A lovely nourishing oil with a very unusual though not unpleasant smell. It really has a very earthy natural smell to it - just smells GOOD. Still a little bit early to see any changes in my skin but I actually prefer to use this as a scent. It does seem to uplift one. Love to just take deep sniffs.
05/07/2017, By PS
Nice oil, I use it instead of 'myrrh' oil, and it adds a fantastic extra something to my skin oil mixtures.
20/06/2017, By Lea
I've been looking forward to this product for ages - so glad F2N started sourcing it! Works beautifully so far. Not the nicest of smells, though.
06/03/2017, By Tam
When I get acne I use this oil on my skin and it works like a charm! It relieves the inflammation and my skin is clear within days. It also works wonders on scars. What a unique product with a unique story!

Mbiri skincare is one of the newest kids on the block and after being given the entire range to sample, I am converted, as is the rest of my family. The products have been created with the dry Namibian climate in mind, using precious Namibian myrhh and even the bodywash will leave your skin feeling moistursied. Think nourishing; high quality luxury skincare that is probably a third of the price it could be! Sold.
