Aromatherapy Properties: (Uses) Opoponax is a resin from the Myrrh family native to eastern Africa and the Middle East. Opoponax, along with Myrrh, has been a component of incenses, perfumes, insect repellents, and herbal remedies since biblical times. The Egyptians also used myrrh to help preserve their mummies. Opoponax is known as "scented myrrh". It's an excellent fixative for blends or perfumes that use Neroli in the mix.
