As we grow older, our skin can start to show a little wear and tear. Sun damage or scars can add up leading to a less than ideal derma. Please don’t misunderstand us, Edens Garden hopes you love your unique “imperfections” and treasure your facial character. We also understand that dry skin can be frustrating.

Frankincense-Carterii acts as a natural application to look and feel fresh. It helps the skin and blends fabulously well with Rose and Lavender.

Not only does Frankincense-Carterii help heal smooth skin, it has an earthy and sweet aroma that can calm the body and tense emotions. Many aromatherapists recommend Frankincense-Carterii.

More than 5,000 years ago, the Ancient Egyptians burned frankincense in holy temples during religious ceremonies and later used the gum as a facial mask to rejuvenate the skin. Native to the Mediterranean, Frankincense is found in sunny, dry locations. The tree grows to about 20 feet and sprouts glossy leaves and white flowers. When the bark is damaged, a resin pours out of the tree. Through a steam dilution process the essential oil is extracted from the resin.
