Frankincense mindful facial ritual

Create a moment of mindfulness in five simple steps, every morning and evening.

Start with freshly cleansed and toned skin.
Apply a small amount of serum onto your fingertips.
Close your eyes and inhale the therapeutic aroma for a few moments.
Apply to your face and neck using an upwards and outwards sweeping motion, until fully absorbed, taking care around the delicate eye area.
For best results, follow with Frankincense Intense™ Age-Defying Cream.


Inhaling the therapeutic aroma of frankincense, which is traditionally used to promote relaxation, helps create a moment of mindfulness. We use the first certified organic frankincense from Oman in our Frankincense Intense™ Age-Defying collection. Sustainably sourced from the resin of the Boswellia sacra (frankincense) trees that grow wild in the Dhofar region of Oman, the precious resin is expertly harvested using traditional tools before being hand sorted and distilled to extract the pure essential oil.


Frankincense Intense™ Age-Defying Serum and Cream have been formulated to work better together – use both for the best age-defying results.

Visibly smooths and plumps

Clinically proven to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles



I love this serum! I have tried many others - & some much more expensive but this is the most effective. I have really sensitive skin that can flair easily but this serum seems to strengthen my skin and feels great.


An instant hit About 2 months ago I developed deep dark circles beneath my eyes. My face routine at the time wasn't touching it. I had used frankincense intense age defying serum as part of a facial at a local spa. It was a fantastic experience. I decided to try this again. After using it twice daily for 3 days the terrible dark circles are well under control and barely noticeable. I am officially hooked on this product


I bought 3 of the Frankincense range products and have noticed a significant change to my skin since using them. I use the Serum in the morning before day cream and it is absorbed into the skin easily and feels light yet nourishing and healing. Would recommend and buy again.


Ethically hand-harvested in Oman, our frankincense is certified to the highest organic standard. This ancient ingredient is often used to promote a sense of relaxation and helps to encourage deeper breathing when inhaled.

Liquid gold!

This amazing serum is a pure delight from the moment I unscrew the pipette. The aroma is so lovely. The serum can be applied quite sparingly for full coverage, it is absorbed easily and leaves my skin feeling wonderful. The lines on my face have definitely reduced too. I love this product.

Amazing product

I had started to see fine lines under my chin but since using this product they are barely visible and that is in just 4 weeks!!


I have been using this serum for about 3 weeks now. I’ve noticed a big difference in my skin. It looks brighter and the wrinkles are greatly improved. I can highly recommend this serum!
