As a woman, and a firm believer in skincare, I’m always searching for great products. I have some dark patches of skin on my face, which is the result of extreme sunburn. My vacation to Hawaii ended up being a painful experience from the quarter size blisters and crimson skin. The dark spots took years to appear, but when they did I went to see a dermatologist. I tried two different prescribed creams to lighten my skin. Yeah, the patches weren’t as dark, but still noticeably there. The medication also left me with dry peeling skin, which would become red and irritated.
Instead of going back to the doctor I began to search Doterra products. I always have Frankincense oil around, which I use for my asthma, so when I read that it helps with dark patches of skin I immediately reached for it. I applied a drop of this heavenly oil on each dark spot and felt a slight tingle as it soaked in. While the scent is very soothing, those that have sensitive skin could blend it with coconut oil to dilute it down.
I had seen these spots staring back at me for so long I leaned into the bathroom mirror just to be sure that they were indeed fading. I always had concealer and hated going out of the house without makeup. That concealer has been thrown in the trash with a gleeful wave goodbye. I was left with radiant, even, skin tone. This oil is also a great wrinkle reducer and skin cell rejuvenator. Instead of applying it to only my problem areas I now coat my face with it every night before going to bed.
Frankincense use has been documented since before 1500 BC, and this oil is a multitasker. It can be used to treat arthritis, breathing issues, depression, balance if your feeling overwhelmed, immune support, and fibromyalgia treatment to name a few. This oil is a miracle for me, not just for my skin issues, but my asthma. Though it’s one of the more pricey oils, my Doterra kit cannot be without this product.
