Frankincense + Calendula Face Oil
Frankincense resin from the boswellia tree has been used as medicine and an incense for ritual and purification for over six thousand years. We use ethically sourced resin which contains the incredibly anti-inflammatory boswellic acids that are too large to be distilled into an essential oil.
Boswellia tree populations are threatened so we source the resin from ethical harvesters who steward existing populations.
Sunny, bright calendula promotes the repair of tissues– minimizing scars; healing wounds, rashes, acne, or abrasions; and reducing inflammation.
In European folk medicine the flowers were collected as they bloomed to throw into soups through fall and winter. This would bolster the immune system and keep away the dreaded Draft or Chill. In Hungary they call it the Huzat. As in “beware of the Huzat!”
Jojoba penetrates deeply and is easily absorbed without clogging pores. It helps skin regulate its oil production and moisture levels. Sunflower oil is a very absorbent, non comedogenic oil, full of vit E.

This face oil is made with whole plants, not just their essential oils. This results in a much milder smelling oil with a wider range of benefits.
The plants are either certified organic, ethically wildcrafted by me, or homegrown with love and without chemicals.

This oil was made with a process Anikó perfected over five years of experimentation. Far more of the plants’ constituents have been extracted for an oil that’s more aromatic and potent than a typical infused oil. In short, it's more lush and more effective.
What if I have oily skin?
Oil can be used for any skin type as a moisturizer or cleanser without leaving you feeling greasy. It's just a matter of choosing the right oil and using the right amount.
Conventional chemical-filled cleansers and moisturizers easily interfere with our bodies' production and regulation of sebum, often exacerbating skin conditions and leaving us either extra dry and flaky or particularly greasy and acne prone.
