Skin Elixir: Frankincense the King of Oils

People ask how Skin Elixir - nourish the skin you're in came about and I tell them through passion and experimentation and a little more than a mild obsession and love for moisturiser and scents! And in a quest to find a product that would rebalance my skin and make dry, flakiness a thing of the past. The problem was I was finding it difficult to find products that, despite proclaiming their innocence, were often, on closer inspection not without potentially skin irritating and hormone disrupting shelf life extenders and emulsifiers; less about skin illuminating active ingredietns and more about fillers.

My love and admiration of what is revered as the king of oils, Frankincense, was another factor.  About 6 years ago, I developed a fascination with Frankincense oil and its purported benefits. 
On a daily basis, I started dousing myself in 2 tiny drops of Boswellia Serrata and or Cartelli and the resulting uplift in my mood was notable. I had to surmise that Frankincense was in some special way to be celebrated.
It’s a weird concept, but we now conclusively understand that at the smallest level of our reality, everything is ultimately made of molecules. Not just molecules, but molecules in motion. This idea is often explained to students by using the example of a table—it looks solid to us, but it’s really made up of virtually countless molecules vibrating with life and frequency.
It was the esteemed Nikola Tesla who “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

You may have come across the terms life force, prana or Chi; this 'energy' is expressed as an electro-magnetic vibrational frequency and pure essential oils are documented as having the highest vibrational frequency of any measured natural substance. So it is scientifically proven that Frankincense really can help to nourish the skin you're in and bring balance and clarity to the mind. For example when we have a cold our frequency lowers and as Frankincense has a vibrational frequency of 147mhz; it works to increase our energy and bring about equilibrium and well-being. You can read more about this fascinating subject here.
