The virtues of Myrrh
While myrrh is probably best known as an incense for burning, it also provides us with a very cleansing essential oil. A natural skin tonic, myrrh has superb antiseptic and healing qualities. It is often used in natural toothpastes and mouth washes because it is fantastic for oral hygiene. 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 is very rejuvenating, so it can really help to treat the signs of ageing, as well as scarring and other blemishes. It makes a great addition to a facial oil blend. Rejuvenating and replenishing on ageing skin and stretch marks, it offers a little rescue to unhappy skin. We love to use it for problem or mature skin types. Frankincense has a relaxing effect when inhaled and is a good oil to use if you feel stressed or under pressure. Massage a little balm into your pulse points.
