Lavender is antiseptic and anti-fungal, so helps to reduce scarring and speeds healing; anti-inflammatory, which means less redness and blotchiness and circulatory stimulant – an increase in blood flow means more nutrients being brought to the skin along with much needed oxygen to the cells. This is essential to healthier cells, and benefits more frequent cell turnover.
Frankincense is cytophylactic, which means that it protects existing cells whilst accelerating new growth, thus helping to reduce visible signs of aging. Frankincense oil can help to fade sun spots, reduce fine lines around the eyes and mouth, and generally tone and tighten skin.
Use with a reusable cotton pad to remove eye makeup. Then pour a teaspoonful into the palm and with fingertips massage in a circular motion into face and neck. Use a warm, damp cloth to wipe away the oil and dirt. For a deeper cleanse, massage the oil in then apply a hot cloth over the face and leave for two minutes before wiping away.
