Our organic Frankincense Hydrosol is distilled in the Northeast US and harvested with great care for both the environment and its inhabitants in mind. Frankincense is a plant that can be vulnerable to over-harvesting and wildcrafting methods; knowing your source takes on a deeper meaning for plants like these. This historically healing resin hydrosol has a warm, spicy, and woodsy scent, with hints of citrus.
Skin: This tree resin has been used for centuries to revitalize and strengthen the skin and has powerful regenerative properties. Frankincense Hydrosol is best suited to mature or damaged skin that has signs of hyperpigmentation or fine lines. It is brightening and firming, as well as anti-inflammatory. This combination improves overall tone and elasticity.
Body: It has an opening and expanding effect on bronchial airways. The inhalation of Frankincense Hydrosol can have a clearing effect on those with a cough or cold, making it easier to breathe. Additionally, it has anti-inflammatory properties which can soothe tired lungs and a sore throat; it can even assist with oral health. Resins are powerful healers for the skin – Nature’s bandaids. Since Frankincense is both a natural healer and an anti-inflammatory, it can be used on skin woes of all kinds, including eczema and rashes, or even massaged into the skin for aching joints.
Spirit: Frankincense has long been used for spiritual ceremonies, from biblical mentions to ancient Egypt. Today, it is commonly used in meditation practice and brings clarity. The resin is said to center and unite the body, mind, and spirit, while promoting freedom of expression. Frankincense has a way of transcending ego and materialistic concerns to get in touch with one’s true inner self.
Limited Quantities Available
Frankincense – Our hydrosols are distilled exclusively for Laurel Skin by master distillers in small batches. They also happen to be distilled by the same individuals who farm and harvest them. These rare hydrosols take on the aromatic compounds of the plants, as well as the soul of the plants and land.
Ritual: Lately, Frankincense Hydrosol has been of great help to me as I’m meditating or journeying to deeper layers of consciousness. Many know that I consider myself a plant communicator, which often includes sitting in silence for periods of time while waiting to see what shows up in my heart and mind. Frankincense sets the stage for this, as if it is clearing out old cobwebs of repetitive thoughts and making space for new ones. In this way, it invites creativity and new ideas. I mist my space, yoga mat, and pillows with Frankincense before a breathwork session with Erin Telford, or I mist my full body and room before one of my classes with Myranda Bennett at Boundless Warrior. It helps keep me grounded to the Earth, while creating spaciousness and clarity for my spirit.
Shake product well with each use and mist directly on to skin, body, linens, or throughout the room and space. Inhale deeply and repeat as often as needed.
Store this product in a cool, dry, and dark place. Use within 6 months of opening and within the use by date noted on the bottom of the bottle.
