I recently had a happy client come to me at a market to tell me the story of how she had left her Cleansing Oil in Queenstown and when her brothers found it they wanted to know who the Jesus oil belonged too 🙏 I had to laugh because they had a point. Frankincense was a gift to baby Jesus from one of the 3 wise men. It is a resin extracted from the Boswellia Carterii tree and when it is steam distilled it produces Frankincense oil which produces some amazing effects for your skin.
Assits in healing
In 2017 a study has shown that Frankincense does assist the healing process within the dermal layer of your skin and reduces inflammation which is perfect for anyone who suffers from a skin condition which is why I chose to add it to my formula for the treatment serum.
Frankincense is a premium oil for mature skin because of the compound Farnesol which allows the oil too smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles due to it increasing the skins elasticity.
Suitable for sensitive skin
Many essential oils trigger a response in sensitive skin, Frankincense is not one of them, it is actually considered suitable for all different skin types. Given my range is was created around being suitable for sensitive skin and the amazing benefits Frankincense has to offer I decided to include it in all 3 products (Cleansing Oil, Toner & Moisturising Cream) for a daily skincare routine.
Evening skin tone
It is an astringent and its ability to protect the skins cells help Frankincense oil to reduce skin imperfections such as discoloration. It stimulates the growth of new cells, thus when used on cuts it promotes faster healing and evening of skin tone including acne scars and blemishes
