Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable.
I have been using this blend on my face morning and evening for the past 7- 8 months, and it has made a wonderful difference! I started to notice it within only a week or so. All of these essential oils are good for the skin, and many reduce puffiness as well.
In an empty 15 ml bottle, I put in 10 drops of Frankincense and 5 drops each of Myrrh, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Geranium, and Lavender. Then I fill the bottle with V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex (about 7 droppers full) so that the essential oils are diluted by about 7:1.
I apply this blend right after I have washed my face, when it is still a bit moist. Be sure to include the NECK too... all the way around. Just a few drops is all it takes.
I also do a bit of "face yoga" at the same time, which tones the muscles in the face and neck, which also aids in the toning and the reduction of wrinkles. You can look for Face Yoga on YouTube to find some of the exercises; or email me, and I can explain them. Mine only take a minute or so.
I hope you have the fantastic results I have seen! Feel free to experiment to see what works best for you with the essential oils you have.

|Supporting Scientific Studies|
|1.||"[A] pulverized mixture of four herbs including Agrimonia Eupatoria (A), Nelumbo Nucifera Gaertn (N), Boswellia Carteri (B) [Frankincense], and Pollen Typhae Angustifoliae (P)... was first described in Chinese canonical medicine about 2000 years ago for treatment of various trauma disorders, such as hemostasis [bleeding], anti-inflammatory, analgesia [pain], and wound healing, etc.... [W]e showed that local ANBP treatment not only significantly enhanced wound healing by relieving inflammation, increasing formation of granulation tissue, and accelerating re-epithelialization, but [it] also reduced scar formation by decreasing collagen production [and] protuberant height and volume of scars and [by] increasing collagen maturity.... [Results show that ANBP] promot[es] wound healing and alleviat[es] scar formation, which may be an effective therapy for human wounds at the earliest stage."||Link|
|2.||"Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."||Link|
|3.||"Tea tree oil... has become increasingly popular as an antimicrobial for the treatment of conditions such as tinea pedis [athlete's foot] and acne....[T]ea tree oil can reduce histamine-induced skin inflammation."||Link|
|4.||"Tea tree oil (TTO) (Melaleuca alternifolia) has been used recently as an effective topical application for the treatment of skin infections due to a variety of aetiological microbial agents, including mainly bacterial infections. We detail... the successful treatment with TTO of a paediatric patient with warts on her right middle finger. TTO was applied topically once daily to the lesions for 12 days, with a successful outcome, including complete re-epithelization of the infected areas. The case highlights the potential use of TTO in the treatment of common warts due to human papilloma virus."||Link|
|5.||"[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."||Link|
