Frankincense HydroSoul is an outstanding Facial Tonic for firming and toning wrinkles and fine lines, offering an instant "lift" to sagging facial muscles while also supplying the senses with a soothing and ethereal aroma: slightly sweet and peppery with undertones of ancient, resinous woods...truly the fragrance of antiquity.
At the heart of our own Somalian Frankincense HydroSoul's essence is an association with air and breath and it is also known for helping to alleviate respiratory congestion: close eyes and spray around nose and sinus area. Its astringent action effectively works to open and clear, expand and ease congested mucous membranes.
Misting over face and neck daily will add significant tone and firmness, yielding a refined texture to your skin instantly.
"Frankincense...is useful in inflammatory diseases, especially of the joints, lungs, GIT and skin, and is a specific osteo- and rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, bronchitis colitis, Crohn's disease and psoriasis where there is chronic kapha and ama involvement...This action is a result of boswellic acid and reducing the activity of pain and inflammation causing leukotrienes by inhibiting the production of the 5-lipoxygenase enzyme (Tillotson 2001, Bone 2003)" Ayurvedic Medicine, The Principles of Traditional Practice, Sebastian Pole
For maximum hydration saturate skin with Facial Tonic HydroSoul (3 to 5 full sprays). With clean hands, press completely into skin. To help restore the protective hydro-lipid balance of the skin, follow Facial Tonic with two pumps of one of our silky oil Serums: Rosehip Treatment or Pomegranate Repair. For added protection, add a finger-full of one of our Day Moisturizers or Whipped Shea Butters over our oil Serum. Facial Tonic Hydrosols can be used liberally all day long to tone, hydrate, and refresh.
Here's an ACNE TIP: A daily saturation of any of our Facial Tonic Hydrosols helps to restore the skin's slightly acidic pH, its Acid Mantle, an integral part of the body's defense mechanism that helps to repel bacterial growth on the surface of the skin. Adding to this restorative action, the benefits of an abundance of bioactive aroma molecules of plant's immune system, and you have a healthy, peaceful face!
