Using my knowledge acquired through the years of studying Aroma Therapy, as well as researching Frankincense as an essential beauty treatment, I present to you “LA NUIT DOUCE”. This product is an outcome of my encounter with Oman’s, high quality, Frankincense. “LA NUIT DOUCE” means “a silent night” which is known as a vital factor for beauty, from the days of Cleopatra. From this time, Frankincense was extravagantly used as an essential oil because of its mystic scent. After a stressful day, relieve your soul and comfort your skin using this product.

Frankincense, also called olibanum is an aromatic resin collected from the Boswellia tree of the Burseraceae family. When the bark is scraped, a milky-white sap is secreted and collected. The main characteristic of the mystical fragrance of the Frankincense is the spicy scent from the tree and flowers, hidden within the richness. It incorporates an abundant amount of Pinene, a perfume component, which is perfect for creating an essential oil of high quality. It is stated that the use of Frankincense is dated back more than 5000 years. Not only is it known to be one of the three gifts that the wise men gave to baby Jesus, but it is also known to be used for medicinal purposes as well as for beauty. It is also said that the Frankincense that Cleopatra and the Queen of Sheba used was from Oman. The Boswellia tree can be found in the Middle Eastern region such as Oman or Yemen, as well as the African Continents such as Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia, and parts of India. However, each tree’s sap has different characteristics in color, and fragrance. It’s been known, through the years, that the Frankincense from Oman is the highest in quality and was the center of trade back then. Among the Omani Frankincense, the ones collected in the Dhofar region’s (Southern Oman) desert of high altitude were called “Hojari” and it was said to be used as an oral drug. “LA NUIT DOUCE” was created using the best “Hojari” collected only for this product, in the middle of the scorching hot desert.

Frankincense is known for its beauty effect such tightening of the skin, and prevention of wrinkles and sagging, due to the usage of the natural oils of the plant. It is said that the reason why the Bedouins, who collect Frankincense in the scorching desert, only have a small amount of wrinkles because of the beauty effect from the Frankincense.
