Frankincense Wrinkle-Reducing Face Cream

I recently started replacing my beauty and skin care products one by one. This was actually the first beauty product I made before making my own deodoranttoothpaste and foundation powder. I’ve used this moisturizer as a part of my daily routine for about two months now and I wanted to wait until I’ve used it for awhile so I can critique it. It actually took a few times for me to get used to it because it initially feels oily when applying, but it absorbs into the skin nicely and as a result, my skin is smoother and I have already noticed a reduction of fine wrinkles by my eyes and forehead. This stuff is awesome! In addition to helping reduce wrinkles, Frankincense may benefit in reducing scars and age spots. Click HERE to learn more about the awesome benefits of this sacred oil. Lavender also has benefits for the skin and smells great too! Read more HERE.

Frankincense wrinkle-reducing face cream


1/4 cup Shea Butter
(preferably raw, organic, unrefined)
1/4 cup Organic Coconut Oil

8-10 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
5-7 drops Lavender Essential Oil

Using a double boiler, melt shea butter and coconut oil together until liquid. Remove from heat and let cool for about 30 minutes. Drop in and stir Frankincense and Lavender essential oils. Wait for mix to partially solidify (you can even put it in the freezer for up to 20 minutes to speed the process along). Then whip with your hand mixer until you achieve a butter-like consistency (few minutes). Store in a 4 oz Mason Jar. This should keep for 6-12 months in your bathroom cupboard.

Optional: If you don’t have shea butter, I’ve seen some other recipes that use Cocoa Butter. You could also add in Vitamin E oil or Sweet Almond Oil.
