Frankincense (Beswellia Carterii or Boswellia sacra tree)

The name Frankincense is derived from the term “franc encens” which is French for “high quality incense.” “franc” means “pure” and “encens” comes from “to burn.” It was considered a “pure incense” and known to be the most desirable of the incenses. The aroma is woody, earthy and spicy.

Boswellia sacra tree
Tear-shaped droplets

Frankincense is usually grown in the dry, mountainous regions of India, Africa and the Middle East. Frankincense essential oil is made from milky white sap that is secreted by the Frankincense tree. When the tree’s sap droplets dry and harden into tear-shapes on the tree, this process takes a few days. The dry droplets are scraped off of the tree to be made into an essential oil. The earliest known source is the country of Oman. They shipped the oil to regions like the Mediterranean, India and china for thousands of years.

Making perfume with Frankincense
Burning Frankincense

In the past they used to burn the incense in sacred places and in religious rituals, there was a powerful aroma and white smoke coming from the Frankincense when its burned. It was used in perfumes, cosmetics and Egyptian mummification methods. It is believed its fragrance will bring good health, cleanse the home and purify clothing.In Ayurvedic medicine, Frankincense is referred to as “dhoop” and is used to soothe wounds, relieve joint discomfort, balance hormones in women and purify the air.

Frankincense essential oil

How the essential oil is extracted.

The tear-shaped droplets are crushed into powder and placed in an oil bath. After it undergoes steam distilation or CO2 extraction, it makes the essential oil.

Lavender, one of the most popular essential oils in the world

The most popular one is Lavandula augustifolia, I was used to have a lot of  plants when I was in France and I still take some from my parents garden, dry the flower, put it in little pouch and then in my wardrobe to have a nice smell.  Lavender is not only a plant with fresh and floral scent but has many benefits for our health and skin care.

Little History :

  • Lavender has been discovered over 2,500 Years ago. The Egyptian used it for mummification and as a perfume
  • The Romans used the lavender oil for bathing, cooking and purifying the air. It got the name from the roman “lavare” which means laver (in french) or to wash (in english)

Today Lavender has so many virtues and that is why we use it in our skincare. It’s been used both cosmetically and therapeutically. It is a powerful antioxydant, antimicrobial, antidepressive , has calming effect and sedative.

  • Lavender restores skin complexion and reduce acne
  • Slows aging process with powerful antioxydants
  • Relieves pain
  • Reduces nervousness and emotional stress
  • Helps healing wounds and burns
  • Improves brain function
  • Can help with hair loss by massaging the scalp

I am only in beauty industry and not a doctor so you can check out all the health benefits on the internet however it has been shown that lavender essential oil is a natural antioxydant that will prevent and reverse disease and also helped people maintaining normal and stable mood, helping with memory and improving sleep.

We can use also essential oils in candles which has an aromatherapeutic properties. Aroma candles are made for holistic therapeutic care — for providing well-being to the body, mind, and spirit.

The fragrances of essential oils are emanated in order to stimulate the senses and candles are not just for their pleasant fragrances, but also for their ability to change our mood — to help us feel good.

What are CBD Bath Bombs?

Do you treat yourself with a night of relaxation and tranquility?

CBD bath bombs are an all-in-one experience, providing relaxation and relief from physical tension, with a colourful blast of aromatic fizz, they are a ball of dry ingredients that dissolve and fizz producing bubbles when they come in contact with water.

A combination of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), citric acid, epsom salt and natural organic colouring produce the iconic fizz by the bath bombs. Typically they contain additives such as essential oils that double as aromatherapy and nourishes the skin with the hot water of a bath it will feel as close to a spa-like experience in a bath at your home.

CBD is taken orally, smoked/vaporized or applied topically, but bath bombs present a new method of ingestion; absorption through open pores from the heat of the bath. It allows the CBD to reach the blood stream faster than topical application and penetrate the skin throughout the body, instead of small areas.

CBD bath bombs contain remarkable healing properties, ranging from anxiolytic properties to pain relief.

Epsom Salt and CBD

Epsom Salt draws out harmful toxins from your body and restores balance. Epsom salt is usually used in “salt detoxes”, which provides many benefits such as:

  • Appetite management
