Why you should add Frankincense to YOUR wish list.
Frankincense (Ru Xiang) is traditionally used in Chinese medicine as a very effective pain reliever with the ability to reduce swelling and promote healing. Frankincense can help reduce acne blemishes, scars, and stretchmarks, as well as prevent wrinkles, strengthen, lift and tighten skin, thereby naturally slowing the signs of aging.
Make sure to look for a 100% essential oil to ensure you are getting the highest quality, and to mix six drops of the Frankincense to one ounce of a carrier oil, like Argan oil for example, and apply directly to the skin.
Vitruvi is a local brand that sources its oils from all over the world. Not only is their oil high quality, but I'm in love with the matte black packaging and label resembling the periodic table. Appeals to both my minimalist and chem geek sides. ;)
*Frankincense is known to have blood thinning effects, therefore is contraindicated in pregnancy or for those with problems related to blood clotting.
