Everyone’s skin is different and reacts differently to anything that we apply to it.

2. Some people might notice that more acne and blind pimples appear on the skin surface when using Myrrh, which is normal because Myrrah, as I mention, is an antibiotic and will cause this to remove all acnes wether are under or on your skin.
3. Do not use myrrh for more than a month because it will give you the exact opposite results: more scars and pitting scars.
