How to Use Frankincense Hydrosol
- As a Facial Mist & Toner: Generously mist on face, neck & décolletage after cleansing. It can be used anytime throughout the day. If you have dry skin, it is best to immediately apply one of our serums (while the face is still moist) to lock in moisture.
Benefits: Frankincense is a precious aromatic treasure for the skin. Our high quality frankincense excels at enhancing skin health & beauty. This aromatic water purifies oily or troubled complexions, rejuvenates mature skin, and if used over time, reduces the effects of time (as seen in facial lines & wrinkles).
- As a Compress: Place washcloth in a bowl of cool/cold water to make a cold compress or hot water (tolerable) to make a hot compress. Pour contents of one bottle frankincense water into one cup water, stir & then saturate washcloth. Ring out. Fold washcloth flat and place on desired area. Leave on for 10 minutes or as long as desired. Repeat as often as desired.
