Frankincense oil from the Boswellia tree, calms, hydrates and nourishes the skin, soothing any irritations or blotchiness. Frankincense oil also contains a complex mixture of monoterpenes such as alpha-Pinene, Limonene and beta-Pinene. This intricate mixture of components works together to make an oil with many uses and benefits. The monoterpenes also contribute to the aromatic benefits of Frankincense essential oil, including its ability to promote relaxation, peace and a sense of focus. It was considered valuable enough to be given as a gift to Christ after his birth. 💕
Immortelle Oil, or Helichrysum Oil, is harvested from the yellow flowers of the Helichrysum Italicum plant that grow mainly in the Mediterranean. In the language of flowers, Helichrysum spp. (Immortelle) symbolizes eternal or endless love (Seaton 180) although herbalists have used the herb as a tincture for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, specifically for wounds, cuts, abrasions, and scars, which remain some of its most common applications today. It is also a popular and highly effective essential oil when used for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties due to it's high levels of terpenes and phenolic compounds found in the oil as part of it's adaptation to growing in a challenging environment of poor dry, sandy soils, at altitudes over 2200m.
It is one of our favorite oils to use, not only is it rare and grows from such beautiful flowers, it has also adapted to it's harsh, growing environment to produce plant phytochemicals such as terpenes, flavonoids (pinocembrin and quercetin) and polyphenols which help regenerate skin, soothe inflammation and protect our skin from free radical damage.
