Rose Hip Oil: Wonders for the Skin

Rose Hip Oil: Wonders for the Skin

Rose hips are the seed pod left after the rose petals fall off. You have probably heard of rose hip tea, recommended because it is so rich in Vitamin C. The oil from rose hips, often called rosa mosqueta, is very nutritious and consists of 80 percent essential fatty acids. It was a mainstay of the Incas, for example, for its nutritional qualities.

Rose hip oil is also renowned for its benefits for the skin. In fact, it has multiple benefits. It is particularly famous for any scars, including acne scars. Read about them here:

I was alerted to look into rose hip oil—rosa mosqueta—because some Aubrey Organics skin care products contain it, and I have great respect for Aubrey, the chemist behind the product line. He has considerable integrity and his products are very pure. I always try to use his products if I can.

Here are some of the healing aspects rose hip oil is credited with for helping the skin:

  • Scars, including acne scars and old scars
  • Dry eczema
  • Skin burns, including sunburn
  • Rehydrates dry skin
  • Repair damaged skin cells of all sorts
  • Reduce wrinkles
  • Benefit for dry, mature, aging skin

There are some pure moisturizing creams on the market (Aubrey for one). If you have a specific problem, it would be beneficial to obtain pure rose hip oil and massage two to three drops of the oil into the affected area every day.

I was amazed at the number of benefits there are for rose hips. The oil seems to be a great healer for acne although not sure whether it is better than tea tree oil. I read some articles at:
http://byebyespots.com/natural-skin-care/rose-hips-benefits/ where it talks about some of the benefits, but not sure it will ever surpass tea tree oil.

Hello, I sell rosehip oil. I can send by courier. You can also ask to your provider of beauty that make a big import, so leaves them cheaper. The rose hip is originally from Chile in South America. You can write me to gemetek@gmail.com. My name is Fernando Miranda. My product is excelent and cheaper.
Best regards

Everything in this article is true about rosehip oils benefits. I use a facial oil by mama nature for wrinkles that is rosehip oil based and my friends have commented on how great my skin looks. My skin has a lovely sheen to it whereas before it was dull and lifeless looking. Great for wrinkles and feeding your skin (your skin needs fed on a regular basis because of all the drying effects of the sun, wind etc.). Rosehip oil should be at the top of your list for your skin care regimen.
