The oil eliminates age spots as it aids in healing by forming a scar tissue, an astringent and cytophylactic. Apply 1 or 2 drops of undiluted frankincense oil on the spot every morning and evening till it fades. It also prevents acne scars, stretch marks and wrinkles. This is also a disinfectant for cuts and scrapes and can also be used for aromatherapy.

Age spots are flat tan, brown or black spots that vary in size and usually appear on the face, hands, shoulders and arms, mainly the areas most exposed to the sun. Frankincense oil acts as a lightening agent to help reduce the appearance of age spots. It is known to give a beautiful skin by making the age spots less conspicuous. It also prevents acne scars, stretch marks and wrinkles.

How To Use Frankincense Oil For Age Spots?

  • Topically apply one or two drops of undiluted frankincense oil on the age spot every morning and evening. Continue with the process until the age spots fade.
  • It is also advisable to apply a little oil on acne prone regions to help keep them at bay.
  • You can also use it as a basic moisturizer by adding about six drops of frankincense essential oil per each ounce of a base moisturizer. For the base, you can use a simple unscented lotion, or a skin-lightening cream that targets age spots. Seek lotions that contain natural brightening agents such as alpha-hydroxy acids, ellagic acid, retinoids or vitamin C.

How Frankincense Oil Aids In The Removal Of Age Spots?

Frankincense oil is a good remedy for age spots since it is cicastrisant (aids in healing by the formation of scar tissue), astringent and cytophylactic. As a cytophylastic, it promotes a faster rate of cell division which eventually promotes faster healing of the skin.

It has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help it work well to prevent acne and associated redness. The use of frankincense oil for age spots is very a well-known and practiced remedy in aromatherapy.
