Opopanax essential oil has a lot in common with its friends, Frankincense and Myrrh.
These essential oils are all distilled from resins, and they’re all good at caring for skin and soothing inflammation. Perfect for things like Aromatherapy bug bite itch sticks, or natural sting salve with essential oils.
I wrote about these three friends in my book, The Heart of Aromatherapy. I imagined that if they were people, they would love history and archeology . . . that’s because they all have a history of being used in skin care and perfumes in places like Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece.
