Make your own Rose hip seed oil and night renewal cream
Rosehip seed oil is widely regarded as one of the most important oils for fighting wrinkles and premature aging and repairing damaged skin.
A study at the University of Santiago in 1983 was the first significant research to reveal the incredible anti-aging properties of rosehip seed oil. 180 individuals with deep wrinkles, premature aging, UV damage, facial scarring, acne and other skin related problems were treated using rosehip seed oil. The results showed that the treatment helped to regenerate the skin, reduce scars and wrinkles and help skin to regain its natural color and tone.
Rosehip seed oil has subsequently been identified as an effective treatment for stretch marks, eczema, psoriasis and dry and damaged hair.
Rosehip seed oil can be applied directly from the bottle as a moisturizer or it can be used as an ingredient in your own homemade products. It is a gentle oil and so can be used undiluted, even on sensitive skin.
If you grow roses you already have the ingredients to make your own oil. How to is at this link.
