Though winter is still hopefully a little ways off, the temps have been dropping around here and the air has gotten very dry on a number of occasions recently. A few days ago, I started to get so chapped and all around my lips my skin was peeling and painful. It was awful! Chapstick did virtually nothing and though I was trying to drink more water to stay hydrated as well, I found no relief. Due to the fact that Frankincense is such a fabulous oil for skin, I decided to try a drop around my lips to see if it might help. Seriously amazing result! I applied the Frankincense at night before bed and by the next morning, my dry and flaky chapped skin was almost completely healed. I applied the Frankincense a couple more times that day to kick the tail end of it and after 3 applications, there was no longer any sign of dry or painful skin!
Once again wowed and amazing and in love with these oils! How did we ever live without them?! God's handiwork is so incredible that he created the life blood of these plants for our use and our benefit - we truly serve an awesome creator!
You can be sure I will be reaching for my Frankincense this winter when the dry wind and weather wreak havoc on my skin!!
