Myrrh - The Oil of Mother Earth

May 07, 2021

Guest Post by Dawn-Sabeeha Hinson, Cherished Muslimah's In House Wellness and Wellbeing Advocate.

We are in the season of spring, and in the Cherished Seasons course, the habit for May is Guardianship. And as we do each month, we have chosen the doTERRA oil-of-the-month for this month’s habit – which is Myrrh - the oil of Mother Earth.

Why Myrrh?  

Myrrh oil supports us by bringing our motherly maternal relationship and our connection with the earth together, which creates a balanced healthy bond with those we love or who are in our care. Myrrh helps to fill any void that may exist from our own childhood experiences, so we can have healthy attachments built on love and trust.

Why the oil of Mother Earth? 

Myrrh oil helps us feel nurtured and protected from the outside forces of the world, reminding us that we are connected to mother earth, always knowing that Allah is the One who provides for us and protects us. He is: 

 Al Muhaymin (The Protector) He who watches over and protects all things. 

Ar Razaaq (The Provider) He who provides us with food and knowledge He bestows all manner of support and growth. 

Myrrh encourages us to be creative and to communicate with confidence, whilst having the ability to keep us calm and focused and help us to balance all our responsibilities as a leader and guardian. 

Divinely Assigned Roles:

Embracing Guardianship means accepting which areas have been assigned to you, and for this, we turn to the narration of The Messenger of Allah  who said: 

Everyone of you is a guardian and is responsible for his charges. 

The ruler who has authority over his people is a guardian and is responsible for them. 

A man is a guardian over his family and is responsible for them. 

A woman is a guardian of her husband’s house and children and is responsible for them. 

A slave is a guardian of his master’s property and is responsible for it. 

So, all of you are guardians and responsible for your charges.” 

Bukhari (2554)

Using Oils Purposefully  

As Cherished Muslimahs, we do everything as an ibadah (worship) - walso can become grounded in the here and now through Allah’s beautiful names. 

Myrrh calls to our attention that we are encompassed by Allah’s Mercy, reminding us that we are always nurtured by Him. Myrrh shows us how to build healthy bonds with family and friends from a place of security and stability.  

I intend to be merciful and kind. 

I intend to build healthy relationships with family and friends. 

I intend to connect with love and trust. 

Using Oils Prayerfully

You can also combine Allah’s names and affirmations prayerfully to ask Allah to give you what you want, through the strength of His names. 

Oh, Wadud (The loving) Help me to show love and kindness in my actions and words. 

Oh Rahman, Oh Rahim (The Most Gracious the Most Merciful), help me to show mercy to others by connecting to Your Mercy. 

Using Oils Positively

Essential oils can be used in combination with affirmations and Cherished Muslimah’s other healing resources to facilitate transformation. 

You can use the following affirmations as positive reminders to say to yourself when applying/massaging the oils on your body: 

I communicate with love and mercy.  

I am protected and nurtured. 

I am a balanced guardian. 

I can trust that Allah provides for me.
