Get yourself some Rose Hip Seed Oil, to heal wrinkles and more!






Let me introduce you to Rosehip Seed oil.  It is my number one skin care recommendation, with coconut oil being a close second.  I would rather clients use the oil directly, rather than products containing it, because you will pay so much more.  Also, you run the risk of having a reaction to another ingredient in a product with many ingredients.  For the winter months, I recommend using Rosehip Seed oil as a “serum” to be followed by Coconut oil.  This is because RHS oil is considered a “dry” oil, which absorbs deeply into the skin.    It is derived from the rosa canina bush from Chile.  Rosehips are the bulbs that are left after a rose drops it petals.  This oil is different and MUCH less expensive then the essential oil of rose, which comes from rose petals, and does NOT smell rosy. 

            According to Dr. Axe, “For facial skin care, rosehip oil offers several benefits when applied externally. It protects the skin and increases cell turnover because it contains beta carotene (a form of vitamin A), vitamin C and vitamin E which are all antioxidants that help fight free radicals.

Rosehip oil’s healing properties are due to its chemical structure. As I noted, it’s rich in essential fatty acids, but more specifically oleic, palmitic, linoleic and gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Rosehip oil contains polyunsaturated fatty acids (vitamin F), also known as an essential fatty acid (EFA), and when absorbed through the skin, these fatty acids convert to prostaglandins (PGE), which are involved in cellular membrane and tissue regeneration. “(2)

            This oil has a moisturizing, soothing and softening effect. RHS oil (Rosa Affinis Rubiginosa) contains Vitamin A, which helps to delay the effects of skin aging, assists with cell regeneration, and promotes collagen and elastin levels to increase.


Specific benefits of RHS oil include:
- research indicates that it reduces scars, and is helpful in healing burns and stretch marks, and acne

-neutralizes sunburn
- aids in reducing redness associated with facial rosacea
- many acne sufferers find that it can be improve the quality of their skin
- reduces the appearance of premature aging skin as it can reduce wrinkles, crow's feet and fine lines
- great treatment for dry skin
- good for after sun skin care.
- for treating hair problems including dandruff, dry hair, hair fall, and damaged hair
- good for eyelash and nails strengthening. (3)



            There was a study in 2015, where participants INGESTED rosehip seed powder and were monitored at four weeks and eight weeks.  The results showed a statistically significant improvement in crow’s feet, skin moisture and elasticity.  The oil is also one of the richest plant sources of vitamin C.(1)  RHS oil has anti-microbial properties, and it is also good for PMS and menopause symptoms.

The fruits of Rosa canina are used for colds, influenza, scurvy, gastritis and to control diarrhea, while the fruits from Rosa laevigata are used to treat urinary dysfunction, infertility, chronic diarrhea and to regulate kidney function.

            The vitamin C supplement I use comes from www.MarkusRothkranz.com, and contains rose hip seed powder.  Do not forget the role of vitamin C in collagen production, as well.  Look for upcoming article.  It’s a little pricey, but it is naturally sourced vitamin C, not a synthetic version.  It contains gubinge, pine needle, acerola berry, amla, sea buckthorn, watercress, rosehip, guava, lemon and orange peel and pith.  Be warned - it tastes pretty sour!  But I just knock it back and make fish face for three seconds.
