Top 10 Rosehip oil benefits and uses for skin and hair

Rosehip oil is a truly remarkable natural product with amazing skin rejuvenating and hair conditioning properties. It has been used for generations by the Andean Indians of Chile who recognized years ago that Rosehip oil had exceptional healing skin care and hair care benefits. It’s brimming with natural nutrients and vitamins and can be used both externally and taken internally.

So, if you’re fed up with paying over the odds for skin and hair care products, try Rosehip oil as a natural alternative. It has thousands of uses and is currently one of the most highly recommended organic products available for beauty and health. Today let’s look at 10 Rosehip oil benefits and uses for skin an hair:

1. Dry hair

Make bad hair days a thing of the past by simply warming up some Rosehip oil in a bowl (it shouldn’t be too hot, it should be slightly warm and comfortable to touch), then massage it into your hair and scalp. Leave for about an hour and then wash thoroughly; you’ll be left with soft, revitalized hair.

2. Nourishing oil for dry skin

Rosehip oil is great for the skin too, it’s rich in the essential fatty acids, such as linoleic acid (or omega-6), as well as linolenic acid (or omega-3). The oil also is widely used in various skin care products and is very efficient in fighting signs of aging, as well as diminish photo-aging. Victoria Secret model Miranda Kerr loves using it. Apply Rosehip oil to dry and cracked skin to nourish and rehydrate it. It’s especially effective on dry, elbows, knees cracked lips and heels.

3. Dull hair

If you want to reinvigorate your hair and put the shine back into your locks, then Rosehip oil is just the ticket. Massage in slightly warmed up Rosehip oil before you wash your hair and it will bring back the shine to permed, colored or dull hair. Rosehip oil is rich in vitamins and this makes it ideal for adding bounce and silkiness back into limp, lifeless hair.

4. Moisturizer

Rosehip oil has a high content of essential fatty acids and is a perfect skin hydration tool. Spray a little Rosehip oil mixed with water on your skin to rehydrate and lock in the moisture. This beauty trick is especially good for summertime!

5. Scar treatment

Use pure Rosehip oil on stretch marks, age spots, hyper-pigmentation, burns and scars; its astringent and skin nourishing properties will help to speed up the healing  process, as well as hydrate and moisturize the area.

6. Dandruff 

Rosehip oil is proven to help with dandruff and other similar scalp conditions. Simply massage pure Rosehip oil into the scalp, leave it on for 30 minutes, then shampoo and see the difference it makes.

7. Sunburn

Apply Rosehip oil to sunburn and feel the soothing effect immediately. The oil will also gently aid the healing process and reduce the inflammation.

8. Nourish brittle nails

Rosehip oil can nourish and hydrate your brittle nails, making them stronger and healthier. Just massage your nails every evening during one week with Rosehip oil before going to sleep and see the wonderful difference it makes!

9. Premature aging

The signs of premature aging and skin pigmentation problems also react well to Rosehip oil. Just put a few drops of the oil on some cotton wool and dab the affected areas several times a day.

10. Make your skin glow

Rosehip oil gives beautiful and natural glow to the skin when used regularly; not only this oil helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and even up your skin tone, but also Rosehip oil gives your skin beautiful and healthy glow! Try it, you’ll love it’s beautiful effects!

If you find that Rosehip oil is too heavy for your skin, try adding only one or two drops of it to your usual skin moisturizer.

Rosehip oil is used in many beauty products, such as creams and sprays or it can be found in its pure form in most health food stores. You’ll find it stored in dark bottles, because over exposure to the light can reduce the potency of its ingredients. You can buy rosehip oil in many health food stores or online: hereTrilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil.

I hope you find these natural beauty tips useful.

      Hi Setu, in our opinion cold pressed oil is the best. The shelf life of the oil should be clearly indicated on the bottle, as this can vary. I also used to break out on the face, and in those periods I wouldn’t use oil. It’s best to first find out the cause and treat the problem of breakouts before using any oil on the face.

    The very effective product for the shines of hair is hemp seed oil ,if you interested to increase the the shines of hair and also protect from the hair removal disease then the best solution is to concern with a doctor of skin care for solving this kind of problem immediately and remember don’t work in the light of sun because the rays of sun damaged the upper layer of skin and increase the disease of hair removal ,So take care of hair and avoid to work during the light of sun.

    Great to read your tips on other ways to use Rosehip Oil. I have used it on my face for approx 2 yrs and have seen a real reduction with acne scarring and the evening out of skin tone. Don’t think because you have long term issues that it won’t help. I am 66 and my results have been very noticeable. Now I have read the hair tips I will be trying that also. My recommendation would be to use only good quality rose hip oil.

    It is very exciting to read articles on products and information we have been writing about, and talking about in our Store. Taking a trip into the past, and moving past treatments from many “contemporary firms” with alcohol, fillers etc., returns us to Egypt and the products they discovered for skin care. Hair care, arms, arthritis, teeth to keep clean and fresh. It is a walk to the future, by looking to the past.In Tutankamen’s tomb, they found many bottles and small bowls filled with a variety of herbs and oils. Than you for this article. And, I urge everyone to read about the past, and discover all the amazing cures they had used. All natural.
    Rose Hip Oil, Cinnamon, Moroccan Nana Mint, Thyme Oil. Thyme Oil was used in the morning and after meals, by placing in a cup of hot water, and adding lemon juice. This mixture was used to clean teeth. The interesting part of this information is that Thyme Oil is both an astringent and antiseptic. Mint was used to freshen breath. If you read some of your mouth wash product and toothpaste’s you may be surprised at what you find.
    I urge everyone to read about simple remedies found in the home, or easily purchased today.
    We have all these products, just not on our web site yet, but I AM SURE there are sites here to help find the oils and therapies that are available now. Enjoy your Rose Hips.
    Thank you for reading this.]
