How to Re-Liquefy Thick Oils Like Myrrh and Vetiver

Anyone who’s had a bottle of Myrrh or Vetiver essential oil for awhile knows how difficult it can be to get those oils to drip out of the bottle, as they thicken over time. Recently I needed to find a way to re-liquefy Myrrh in order to use to use it for a facial oil I was making. My bottle of Myrrh had thickened over time and was way too thick, and I couldn’t get it to drip out of the bottle.

Someone had posted a tip saying to place the bottle in the freezer. I thought, strange but I’ll try it… NOPE, didn’t work. Then I found this tip to warm up the oil. That tip sounded a little more promising but I wanted to protect the label on the bottle so I placed the bottle in a small ziploc plastic bag and pushed out as much air as I could so it wouldn’t float. Then I placed it in a coffee cup full of hot tap water. After a few minutes I checked it… it worked like a charm and I was a happy camper. Keep in mind though, thick oils like these drip slowly and never come out fast like some of the others so a certain amount of patience is needed.

Later I checked the bottle again. It had thickened back up again so I guess this procedure will have to be repeated each time before using.
