Rose Hip Seed Oil - Organic (Oshadhi) 10ml

Rose HipsRose Hip (Rosehip) Seed (Turkey) Organic


Rosehip oil, also called rose hip seed oil, comes from the seeds of rose hips. Rose hips are the fruit left behind after a rose has flowered and dropped its petals. Rosehip oil is harvested from the seeds of rose bushes predominately grown in Chile or Turkey, and is full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. By using a cold-press extraction process, the oil is separated from the hips and seeds.

'The Fountain of Youth'


Rosa rubiginosa (Rose Hip Seed) oil, has been described as the ‘Fountain of Youth’ as a result of its amazing ability to regenerate and hydrate damaged skin. Known locally as Rosa mosqueta, this plant grows wild in cool, pure mountain air, and it is from the seeds of this plant that the oil is extracted. It should be an important component in practically any facial massage.

  • reduce scar formation after burns, surgery, and injuries
  • recover from sun damage
  • reduce wrinkles, stretch marks, spotty skin
  • develop resilience and smoothness
  • build collagen
  • improve elasticity
  • hydrate skin tissue

Rosa rubiginosaHow to apply Rosa Rubiginosa


Typically, this involves twice daily use for between one and three months. Apply a few drops with fingertips to the problem area. Massage gently for 2-3 minutes, or until the oil is completely absorbed. The skin will not feel greasy. In the case of acne, wash the skin thoroughly before treatment. After this treatment routine, use the oil in one application per day, which is sufficient for routine care and wrinkle prevention.

Why it is good for your skin


Rosa Rubiginosa oil is superbly rich in unsaturated fatty acids, mainly linoleic acid (48%) and alpha- and gamma-linolenic acid (33%). These compounds are vital for the synthesis of prostaglandines in the cell core, for the regeneration of membranes, and for the cell's defence mechanism, as well as for other physiological and biochemical processes involved in the regenerative processes of the skin.

Fatty acids are considered vital for human life; they can only be synthesized by a living organism, and they must be absorbed either through the skin or through ingestion. The role of these fatty acids in the tissue as hormone precursors (prostaglandine) is very important.

Research


Rose HipsThe remarkable effects of this oil on the skin were known to the ancient Andean peoples, and recently these have been brought to light by modern scientific research in Chile, Germany and the US. Here are summaries of two studies:

  1. Exposure to sun causes important morphological changes in skin. This appears in different ways and varying intensity ranging from surface wrinkles, active keratosis and variation in the distribution of the melanin granules. For this test volunteers were selected among people who usually spend the 3 months of summer in resorts by the sea or who go to the beach every day. The tests were carried out on 20 women, aged between 25 and 35, who were controlled and assessed during the summer of 1988. The most frequently noted cutaneous signs were surface wrinkles, brown spots and, in some cases, only an intense tan. All applied rosehip oil on the face during four months (May to August, 1988). Observations were made every 8th day. Significant changes were noted starting on the third week. Firstly, surface wrinkles started to disappear, spots started to fade until, at the end of the fourth month, the disappearance was complete. Skin presented a smooth and fresh aspect and the spots had almost disappeared.— Professor Bertha Pareja and Professor Horst Kehl, Dec. 1988.
  2. Ten patients affected by leg ulcers and post-surgical wounds were treated with 26% oil concentrated Rosa Rubiginosa with very notable improvement in their healing response compared with the control group. Due to the lack of side effects, it was concluded that Rosa Rubiginosa oil is very useful to these conditions. (Source: Med Cutan Ibero Lat Am. 1990;18(1):63-6)

Rosa Rubiginosa can be used on its own, or with the addition of specific essential oils for added benefit and fragrance.

Rose Hip Seed Carrier OilAbout Carrier Oils


Carrier oils are a massively important feature of an aromatherapy treatment.

The correct and thoughtful use of carrier oils (also known as base oils, or vegetable oils) in therapeutic massage adds a huge additional dimension to the benefit of the treatment.

Despite this, carrier oils in aromatherapy are sometimes seen simply as the vehicle for the essential oils to be introduced onto the skin. Hence the use of the word 'carrier oil'.

If you want to convince yourself about the benefit for health and well-being that vegetable oils can provide in their own right, try self massage with warm Sesame oil every day for a week before a bath or shower, and see what difference you notice. (This is a daily prescription for good health that is recommended by Maharishi AyurVeda, Ayurveda being the world's oldest system of natural health care, and is said to prevent all manner of ailments, to balance the system, and restore health and vitality.)

Why are Carrier Oils Important?


Vegetable oils are largely composed of fatty acids, which are very important to the body, not only because they are an important source of energy, but also because they are a component in the building and maintenance of healthy cells.

Many vegetable oils contain essential fatty acids (EFAs). These cannot be produced by the body yet they are a requirement for life and health. Deficiency of EFAs can lead to a number of ailments, including dry and flaky skin, and raised cholesterol.

Create your own Carrier Oil Blends Different oils can be suitable for different skin types. Try creating your own vegetable oil blends. For example with wheatgerm, sunflower, sesame and hazelnut; or add 10% of avocado oil to sweet almond to create a carrier oil for dry skin.
