Frankincense Essential Oil for Dry Winter Skin
Frankincense essential oil, often called the "king of oils" is a powerful, effective and incredibly therapeutic essential oil. Renowned as one of the most prized and precious essential oils, frankincense has extraordinary health benefits. It has been used as a wound healer both emotionally and physically due to its properties for helping to ease anxiety and negative thoughts, support for a healthy response to inflammation, boost immunity and restore skin to a healthy balance.
Woody, earthy and spicy in aroma with a slight fruity nuance is derived from the milky white sap that is secreted by the Frankincense tree.
