What? Frankincense, widely known as the anointing oil, has been used for centuries in religious practice. Written records depict the ancient Egyptians using this lavish essential oil in everything from perfume to incense to medicine, even grinding the resin into a powder called kohl, to make black eyeliner.
Why? Frankincense Oil promotes regeneration of healthy cells and also keeps the existing cells and tissues healthy. When you combine this aspect of frankincense oil with its powerful astringent capabilities, you have a potent anti-aging quality that frankincense oil is often used for. It can help you to eliminate sun spots, remove micro-wrinkles around the eyes and cheeks, and generally tone and tighten skin all over your body, while simultaneously replacing old or dying cells with new, healthy ones!
