It is known have Antioxidant properties and can be used in skin care products meant for mature skin, to assist in slowing the signs of aging. Myrrh is composed mostly of sesquiterpenes and to a lesser degree of monoterpenes, which give this oil its powerful characteristics that have been recognized for millennia.

Sesquiterpenes are more viscous than monoterpenes. They are used as fixatives in perfumery. They add longevity to your perfume and help capture the scent of more volatile constituents by slowing down their evaporation and adding a deep grounding quality. Myrrh makes a great addition to body products, as it promotes a lasting scent and exhibits beneficial results for the look and feel of the skin.

Monoterpenes are also found in Myrrh oil. Properties of most monoterpenes are said to be effective in anti-bacterial and anti-microbial cleansers and to have excellent absorptive capacity to penetrate through skin to promote a sense of well-being through massage.
