DIY Skin Toner with Myrrh
The usefulness of myrrh was well understood by the ancient Egyptians and Arabian civilizations. Even though they were unaware of the oil’s astringent, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-septic characteristics when they applied it to skin concerns such as acne or aging skin, they were aware that its effects resulted in radiant and healthier-looking skin.
This oil’s scent was also uplifting and restorative, possibly because the oil’s components stimulate support in numerous brain regions, including the pituitary, amygdala, and hypothalamus, all of which are involved in regulating emotional equilibrium. With these topical properties and this aromatic impact, a single application of myrrh essential oil can benefit both skin and emotional conditions. However, when combined with other synergistic oils such as patchouli, lavender, lemongrass, and helichrysum, you have yourself a potent skin-supporting product to hand.
This Anti-Aging Skin Toner blends all of these skin-supportive oils into a blend that firms and smooths your skin’s tone, resulting in skin that is vibrant and glowing throughout. Skin that is healthier and younger-looking can be obtained by following the steps outlined below.

I have always been fond of make-up ever since my adolescent days. I would try out different products on myself. With time I realized that while doing make-up can be fun, I also need to take care of my skin. I follow a strict skincare regime now and hope more people understand the importance of doing the same if they have access to the right products.
