ROSE & FRANKINCENSE SOAP
As a cytophylactic, Frankincense Oil promotes regeneration of healthy cells and also keeps the existing cells tissues healthy. When you combine this aspect of frankincense oil with its powerful astringent capabilities, you have a potent anti-aging quality that frankincense oil is often used for. It can help you to eliminate sun spots, remove micro-wrinkles around the eyes and cheeks, and generally tone and tighten skin all over your body, while simultaneously replacing old or dying cells with new, healthy ones! Rose Geranium and Rose absolute oils are the two main oils in this beautiful soap along with some exfoliating Rose Tea. Rose plants originated from South Africa as well as Reunion, Madagascar, Egypt and Morocco and were introduced to European countries in the 17th century. There are about 700 different varieties of the plant, yet only 10, supply essential oil in viable quantities for extraction. The essential oil is composed of various natural chemical constituents and includes a-pinene, myrcene, limonene, menthone, linalool, geranyl acetate, citronellol, geraniol and geranyl butyrate. Geranium oil is not shown to cause any side effects, since it is non-toxic, non-irritant and generally non-sensitising, therefore this soap is very mild and gentle for fragile or sensitive skin types. This uplifting oil has a great all-over balancing effect for the skin, where it helps to create harmony for oily and dry skin, keeping the skin supple and clearing congestion, whilst soothing and nourishing dry skin types. We are crazy, but we also use a small amount of Rose Absolute - it takes over a hundred kilos of rose petals to produce around 30 grams of the absolute. This magnificent oil is a cell rejuvenator, an antiseptic, an aphrodisiac and is anti-inflammatory. The exquisite scent is used to relieve stress and depression. A fabulous soap therefore, for all skin types that can be used in the shower or bath, also as a facial cleanser, solid shampoo and shave bar.
