Communion Essential oil

Communion is beautiful compound essential oil yielded through a co-distillation of two classic resins-Royal Green Hojari Frankincense and Yemeni Myrrh. Co-distillation means that they were not blended from pre-distilled essential oils, but that their essences were joined and married in the distillation process going from solid form to liquid form as one unique personality.

Over the years, I have learned there is a synergy and very special relationship between Frankincense and Myrrh. A type of relationship that is unique in the plant world. In many ways, Frankincense and Myrrh are perfectly paired and polar opposites. One compliments the other and together they are more than their sum. This is Communion essential oil.

In Western and East Indian Astrology, Frankincense is ruled by the Sun and Myrrh by the Moon. One represents Yang or male energy, the other Yin or female energy. Each displays traits of their respective rulers and side by side they are found in traditional herbal formulas.

Their pairing is reflected in their growing habits and traditional uses, Myrrh grows in Sandy valleys and plains and Frankincense on mountainsides and Rock. Where one finds a tree from the Myrrh family, one will find, in the not too far distance, a Frankincense tree growing.

Myrrh, like the moon, is associated with cycles, the ebb and flow of waters and fluids, dissolution and birth in traditional medicinal systems. Myrrh is traditionally used to facilitate flow and dispel stagnation.

Frankincense, ruled by the sun, warms, stimulates and nourishes. It loosens with its anti-inflammatory powers and breaks up hardness like the rocks it grows in.

Communion is also a homage to Professor Ermias Dagne in Ethiopia, who many years ago introduced me to his co-distillation of Boswellia Papyrifera and Ethiopian Myrrh which he named FraMyr.

FraMyr was the product of a study done on Pharaonic recipes and this combination of co-distilled resins proved to have greater antimicrobial effects than other types of Frankincense distilled with Myrrh. The codistillation created a synergistic effect where the sum was greater than the two parts alone.

The fragrance of Communion is neither Frankincense nor Myrrh. It has a softness that Frankincense lacks and a boldness that is not found in Myrrh. It is a new creature. The essential oil, hydrosol and resin extract from this co-distillation are richly aromatic.

Materials: Yemeni Myrrh, Royal Green Hojari Frankincense, Commiphora Myrrha, Boswellia Sacra.

A perfect frankincense and myrrh combo, their scents so deeply entwined that they meld into one unified indistinguishable fragrant melody. A yin yang in a bottle. The best frank/myrrh combo I've come across.
