The toning qualities are phenomenal and are used to perk up and bind loose hanging skin. It has been well documented that it will cure bruises amazingly fast. It is best used when diluted to not more than 5% in a carrier (massage) oil -- 3-5 drops in a teaspoon of oil. (more is not necessarily better).
