About our Frankincense hydrosol
Frankincense HydroSoul is an outstanding Facial Tonic for firming and toning wrinkles and fine lines, offering an instant “lift” to sagging facial muscles while also supplying the senses with a soothing and ethereal aroma: slightly sweet and peppery with undertones of resinous woods…truly the fragrance of the ancients.
Frankincense has been used for thousands of years, and has been considered sacred to all cultures that encountered it. It’s been found in beauty balms in the tombs of Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs, burned as incense in innumerable temples and churches to sanctify the space and summon Divine presence, and used as a tool in meditation, prayer and purification rituals. In the ancient world, pathways were forged in the desert to circulate this sacred plant through the spice trade. At that time, it was worth more than its weight in gold.
It is protective, purifying, and fortifying for all skin and spirits. Distilled from the dried sap tears of the desert tree Boswellia Carterii, Frankincense is a powerful skin ally, like many desert plants are. Frankincense has an amazing ability to deeply beautify, hydrate, and rejuvenating the skin.
This sacred water is a must in every collection.
