Organic Frankincense & May Chang Moisturiser 60ml
Customer praise: "So in love with my Skin Elixir Organic Frankincense & May Chang Moisturiser. After just one week I have stopped wearing foundation - just a touch of concealer and bit of blush and I'm going. Smells good too!"
A luxurious 100% organic, rejuvenating face cream, though customers explain it works wonders all over the body, carefully hand-blended to create a nutrient-rich moisturising balm suitable for day and night wear. A little goes a long way.

Boswellia carteri (Frankincense) oil is known as the 'king' of oils. Historically, it was used by the Babylonians, Assyrians and Egyptians in various ceremonies and as a resin for salves and balms. It is known for its ability to calm emotions and to increase clarity of thinking. It is also recognized to increase circulation which can be effective in the promotion of healthy, dewy, glowing skin and complexion. The healthy cell-regeneration promoted by Frankincense can also help with the appearance of scars, spots, acne, eczema, psoriasis and with the overall balancing of skin tone. It can help restore elasticity to the skin whilst minimising wrinkles.
Litsea Cubeba (May Chang) has an intense citrusy scent, known to possess anti-fungal, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Scientific studies have demonstrated Litsea Cubeba is effective at controlling arrhythmia, a common sign of anxiety and stress - and so has a natural uplifting effect on the mind. Massaging Litsea cubeba into the skin increases blood-circulation which in turn enhances skin-tone. It is known to control the secretion of sebum, making it excellent for skin that flares-up or that has an over-production of oil. In Ayurveyda, it is revered for its ability to pacify excess kapha energy and aggravate deficit vata and pitta doshas.
We never add water to our formulas so as an undiluted elixir you need only use this cream sparingly.
