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 first learned about the amazing benefits of rosehip oil almost a year ago, and I have tried almost all the rosehip oil products on the market - and the best one is the Made from Earth Rosehip & Hibiscus Serum. It has a high concentration of rosehip oil - without being too oily - this was important for my sensitive skin. I use it twice daily, in addition to my regular moisturizer, as it is very dry here in Colorado and my aging skin needs all the help it can get.

My wrinkles are less noticeable than when I used Botox years ago. Try the Made from Earth Rosehip Serum, as its the best rosehip seed oil on the market - and it has no hamrful chemicals in it. Its the only thing I can use with my sensitive skin.

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.
