A fantastic and easy way to reap the countless benefits of this ancient healing herb.
So what exactly is frankincense? Frankincense is made of the sap or resin that exudes from Boswellia sacra (frankincense) trees once they reach about 8 to 10 years of age. When the resin hardens, it's broken up into chunks and called "tears." It's one INCREDIBLE herb! I believe we've lost the full understanding of just what it can bring to the table as far as its skin-healing benefits.
Frankincense is a natural astringent that helps regenerate healthy skin cells and keep existing tissue healthy and strong. For thousands of years people have used frankincense to lift, tone, and tighten their skin, prevent wrinkles, reduce dark spots, heal and prevent acne, and more. No wonder queens of years ago used to bathe in all forms of this amazing herb! And how could we forget that it was one of the gifts given to baby Jesus from the Three Wise Men. Truly special stuff.
The scent: Woody, earthy, with a slightly sweet licorice-like note to it. (For what it's worth, I don't like black licorice whatsoever, but LOVE the scent of frankincense). A lovely scent that both men and women can enjoy, which is why we recommend this face oil to men who are looking for a light moisturizer.
Fun fact: Jojoba oil is technically not an oil at all. Structurally and chemically, Jojoba is very similar to the human sebum produced by the skin's sebaceous glands. It is non-toxic, non-comedogenic (won't clog your pores) and non-allergenic with a non-greasy feeling in use.
This infused oil is suitable for all skin types, but is especially helpful for those with acne-prone skin and those that are prone to inflammation and irritation.This is a 4mL sample size vial.
To use: A little goes a long way; you don't want to apply too much when using on your face. Simply apply just 4-5 drops to fingertips, rub together, and gently pat into skin.
