I’m pretty sure most of you have heard of Frankincense by now. Whether as an essential oil or in skincare. Frankincense was new to me when I learned about it 6 years ago. To tell the truth, I hated the smell. Literally I was like UGH.
Guess what? Fast forward a year from then and I was not only LOVING the scent, I was massaging with it and using all Frankincense skincare too. Now here I am, a few years later, a few years older and skin looking WAY better because of Frank. Good ole Frank really is a wonder.
Frankincense has been associated with different religions over the years, especially Christianity, as it was one of the first gifts given to Jesus by the wise men. Smart gifting!
Frankincense is known for it’s many benefits including:
Reducing stress and negative emotions
Being antiseptic and having antimicrobial effects.
Healing skin and anti aging
Helps deepen breathing
Having a bottle of Frankincense essential oil around the house is useful- from straight out sniffing it in the bottle, to diffusing, to massaging with it, taking a bath with it….there are tons of uses.
I couldn’t imagine my house without it.
When anxiety strikes me, it’s one of the first things I reach for and a quick sniff often calms me almost immediately.
As for skincare, it’s amazing. NYR Organic’s best selling globally loved line is made with their Frankincense.
For aging well, a nicer term than anti-aging, but the same results, turn to the Frankincense Intense line. Frankincense products run the full gamut from cleanser to toner, oil, serum, concentrate, moisturizers and even a lovely facial mist. My new favorites that will benefit anyone over the age of 35 or 40 is the LIFT LINE.
Frankincense Intense products work for most skin. Occasionally people have a sensitivity to it, usually people with skin that is sensitive in general.
However as my best selling skincare line, I can attest to it that people LOVE this line. It’s even rumored Benedict Cumberbatch shops for NYR!
These clinically proven lines moisturize, firm, restore, re-contour and have an added bonus too- the relaxing effect when we put them on. A double win for mind and skin, the scent calms us and the skincare plumps and drenches our skin.
NYR uses the world’s first certified organic Boswellia sacra frankincense from Oman in their LIFT collection. It’s sustainably sourced from the resin of the Boswellia sacra trees that grow wild in the Dhofar region of Oman. Doesn’t that sound wildly wonderful and naturally nurturing? Certainly does to me!
Frankincense works well in body products too, not just facial care. NYR offers a toning body cream with frankincense, body polish, body lotion and shower cream. See them all here
Another product in the Frankincense line that is incredible is the Frankincense firming mask. which can be put on overnight and people I know even put it on pre-flight to keep skin sealed and hydrated. It’s an insider trick that you can even leave it under makeup for a nice base. (it’s got firming marine algae in there too)
Now that you’ve met Frank, I hope you experience the line and get to love it as much as I do!
