Tighten and tone skin: Frankincense essential oil can be used in skin care to prevent loose or saggy skin as it has natural functions as an astringent – making blood vessels, skin, and tissue contract. Its face and body-sculpting properties are further enhanced by its diuretic properties that enable the body to release toxins and excess water, eliminating puffiness.
Skin renewal: Frankincense promotes skin cell regeneration, revealing fresh, unblemished skin.
Sun Protection: Frankincense is rich in phytonutrients and anti-oxidants that ward off the ageing effects of the sun to help maintain youthful skin.
Prevent hair loss: Frankincense inhibits the body’s production of the chemical compound Alpha 5-reductase, one of the main root causes of hair loss.
