Frankincense facial mist is a product I’ve had in mind for ages and I’ve been tweaking the levels of all three hydrolats to get it just right.
Frankincense in itself is an amazing ingredient but its fragrance isn’t terribly appealing. On its own it smells earthy and a bit musty, not dissimilar to an old church! Now while that might be nice if you’re into historic architecture it’s not the greatest thing to smell of. So I’ve also added some organic orange flower hydrolat and some organic spearmint hydrolat too. It’s a heavenly blend!
A bit about these hydrolats:
Preservative free, these organic hydrolats are a wonderful by-product of the essential oil manufacturing process, so they retain many of the properties of the essential oils.
Frankincense helps to hydrate dry skin and can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, scars, and stretch marks.
Orange Flower is toning, uplifting and brightens the skin and the mood.
Spearmint has a calming effect on the skin and can help with redness associated with acne and rosacea.
What’s good about this facial mist?
Frankincense facial mist is suitable for dry, mature skin. It will add a film of moisture to your skin whenever it’s needed to keep skin hydrated and plumped up.
It’s great to use when the central heating goes on and your face feels like it’s going to crack!
If you’re peri-menopausal like me you’ll find this face spritz great for cooling your skin down during hot flushes. I discovered the other day that if you spritz your face and body and stand in front of a fan it helps quite a lot!
If your skin is dry and you need more of the benefits of frankincense essetial oil you could also try camellia rose face cream for dry skin or intensive facial serum. Both are amazing at restoring dry, parched skin to soft, smooth, hydrated skin.
Available in 3 sizes: 100ml blue glass spritz bottle and a 100ml blue glass refill bottle. Also available in a 30ml trial size bottle. great for holidays! Please reuse your trial size bottles many times.
