Our myrrh and frankincense balm harnesses the rejuvenating properties of two wonderful tree resins. Both of these oils are among the oldest aromatics known to humankind. Myrrh essential oil is an effective cleansing and purifying oil. Frankincense essential oil is invigorating, rejuvenating and grounding.
The virtues of Myrrh
This rich, earthy essential oil is powerfully cleansing and purifying. A natural skin tonic, myrrh has superb antiseptic and healing qualities. It is often used in natural toothpastes and mouth washes. We sell pure myrrh essential oil too, so you can add it to your own creations. You’ll find it very earthy and quite sticky, it’s one of the richest oils around. This oil is a key ingredient in many of our skincare products for it’s tonic and anti-septic properties.
The power of Frankincense
Frankincense can really help to treat the signs of ageing, as well as scarring and other blemishes. For thousands of years, African and Bedouin tribes have used this amazing tree resin to purify and tone the skin. It encourages healthy new skin and improves the skin structure and texture. Frankincense is rejuvenating to aging, mature skin, scarred tissue and dull, lifeless complexions and is one of the finest oils to help rescue unhappy or damaged skin. It makes a great addition to a facial oil blend. We love to use it for problem or mature skin types. Frankincense is a lovely oil to use if you feel stressed or under pressure, as it is believed to relax the breathing. Massage a little balm into your pulse points or use as a chest rub.
When I’m feeling under the weather, I like to add a drop of lemon oil to my balm and massage it well into my feet before bedtime. Don’t forget to wear socks to protect your bedding!
