A celestial preparation of the whole & complete oleoresins of frankincense, myrrh & boswellic extract.
Frankincense & myrrh have been used for centuries for their therapeutic and beautifying benefits and still today their place in the beauty industry is well known.
Frankincense & myrrh are famous for their skin benefits to help heal inflammatory skin conditions as well as address fine lines, wrinkles and premature aging skin. In addition, they nourish the skin to keep it healthy and youthful.
Unfortunately the skincare industry uses the essential oils in their formulations but here at Kossma we work with the whole and complete resins to harness their full rejuvenating potential.
There are no essentials oils of frankincense or myrrh in this serum, but instead the oil soluble isolated extracts of both resins that have been hand crafted in our Colorado apothecary.
Why don't I work with essential oils? When it comes to resins like frankincense, the medicinal portion of the resin (boswellic acid) is too heavy to be carried over into its essential oil during distillation. The essential oils only posses aromatic elements with little to no boswellic acid present (In fact, in Traditional Chinese Medicine, the resin of Frankincense is “cooked” to remove the essential oil before it is added to a formula or taken internally.) In order to experience the healing & beautifying magic of these resins, we must extract them into a carrier oil. We do this using a 2-step extraction method over 2 lunar cycles. This ensures we are able to extract not only the boswellic acid but the other healing compounds in the resins as well (that are not in the essential oil).
This serum is best used added to squalane or purely potent vitamin C serum. You can also add it to any other face oil of your choice. Take 3-5 drops, mix and apply.
Ingredients: Whole frankincense caterri resin, whole myrrh resin & pure boswellic extract from frankincense & sugarcane squalane oil.
