rosehip oil

r

Rosehip oil is a top notch, over the moon, all-purpose oil that you should definitely consider adding to your bathroom cabinet.

Rosehip oil comes from the rose hip plant:

 (yes, it’s an actual plant! For the longest time I thought rosehips were the part of roses where the thorns attach to the stem, haha! I’m sure I’m not alone on this one…..or am I?!)

 

Anyway…..rosehip oil is DA BOMB. And why is it the bomb? Because of its super high natural vitamin C content. Vitamin C is a potent anti-oxidant (great for aging or damaged skin) and vitamin C is also used to make collagen (great for plumping, scar-reduction, blemishes, etc).  I have this one from Kosmea, an Australian company that uses organic rosehip seeds. As you can see from the box, it checks off a number of different uses:

f

scars

acne

wrinkles

stretch marks

sun damage

dry or damaged skin

 

 

And it is full of beautiful rich pigment too. Whenever you see rich pigment in plants you know it is full of vitamins and anti-oxidants, meant to protect you from any internal and external micro-damage. It will appear reddish on your skin for a few seconds, but it soaks in thoroughly and won’t stain.
