I have been lucky enough to sample this glorious incense form Pure Sacra. Believe it or not, but Frankincense was a hot commodity valued more expensive than Gold! It comes form rare Boswellia trees and is a Resin found by stripping the bark. Boswellia sacra trees are considered unusual for their ability to grow in environments so unforgiving that they sometimes grow out of solid rock. Sourced directly form farms Pure Sacra Frankincense can be burned as an oil or as rocks and is great for meditation and relaxation.
It was used as a holy anointing oil and as a general cure-all for all diseases.
“Frankincense has been used since ancient times to be effective in treatment in many ailments including anti-inflammatory, anti-tumoral, immune-stimulant, anti-depressant, digestion, anxiety, calming, skin rejuvenation and muscle relaxing. It stimulates the limbic system as well as the hypothalamus, pineal and pituitary glands. It is strongly anti-viral, anti-oxidant, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-septic and expectorant oil. Frankincense has the ability to relax and revitalise at the same time”
Medical studies have also shown that Frankincense can also aid some Cancers and even assists in anti-aging prevention.

How are you all? I have been a bit slack of late. Its been a little while since I posted, apologies my little fashion followers. Anyway to keep our fingers sticky I have a few very simple and affordable products I d like to share. Sometimes you dont have to blow the bank to get the full effect.
Here I have Victoria’s Secret body moisturizer in Forever Pink with pink tuberose and pear. This is such a lush lotion that hydrates the skin and is fast absorbing and contains a nourishing formula of Aloe Vera, Oat and Grapeseed extracts plus vitamin C and E. It feels smooth and replenishing on the skin.
For the face a very obtainable Nivea cream Q10 SPF 30. Feels like Cashmere on the face and works well under make-up. This can be bought anywhere and is a reliable day cream. I am so glad the companies are coping onto the fact that an SPF 30 is needed to protect the skin rather than a lame unuseful SPF 15 that’s has little or no barrier protection.
Also on my list, for the hair Argan Oil with Moroccan Argan Oil extract really hydrates and revitalises the hair. I find sometimes the water in cities can be hard, therefore leaving your hair dry and breakable. A few drops of this oil once a week, combed through the hair really works!!
So there you have the basic summer essentials to keep your Face, Hair and Body hydrated from the outside, looking and smelling great.
A really cheap and highly beneficial beauty buy is Almond OIl! Almond oil can be used for a multitude of things such as being a great all over body moisturiser, massage it onto the scalp it can help hair to grown and become thicker, it helps with dark circles under the eye, it is 100% natural, is so cheap at only £1.59… Seriously… I tried it and found it helped to brighten my skin. Its also great over salads as a dressing 😉 I recommend you try it out and see for yourself. Its a great item to have at hand. Apply on face and/or body to give the skin some natural moisture that it needs. Its a total winner!
Seems as I was reading recently that new stem cell technology is the way forward with anti ageing skin care, I thought Id share an affordable option. This lil pot from Origins (with SPF 25, very important) is only £46 in comparison to Dr Levy £280 and 3Lab £189.
The stem cells of all living things help to regenerate organs and skin etc. The skin care laboratories have decided to add plant stem cells to help regenerate skin and fight the ageing process. So far it has been the most successful of most experiments due to the natural qualities, effects and sustainability in production for one cell can generate millions.
I’m going to try this out and see how I get on and if it makes a difference. Lets find out if this stem cell renewal is really what it’s cracked up to be or if it’s another one trick pony 😉
These are some great products from Bobbie Brown. The cleansing oil has Olive & Jojoba oils & a ginger root extract which are natural ingredients to help the skin glow and there’s also hydrating eye & face cream to thirst quench the skin. All you need really. Skin is happy after 🙂
