What is Rosehip Oil

Unlike rose essential oil, which is extracted from rose petals, rosehip oil is pressed from the fruit and seeds of the rose plant.

Rosehip Oil (aka rosehip seed oil) is rich in essential fatty acids, such as linoleic acid (Omega 6), oleic acid (Omega 9) and linolenic acid (Omega 3). It is also a source of beta carotene, Vitamin C and other antioxidants that help prevent free radical damage.

Rosehip oil leaves skin looking fabulous. It easily absorbs into skin without feeling greasy. This beauty oil also won’t clog pores or cause breakouts.

What Rosehip Oil to Buy

When buying Rosehip Oil, be sure to buy only 100% pure, unrefined rosehip oil that has been cold pressed. Pure rosehip seed oil has an amber color. The name may imply that it smells like roses but it doesn't (that's rose water), it has a nutty aroma.

Refined rosehip oil takes out some of the color and odor (which some may prefer), but it also removes some of the natural essential fatty acids in this oil which offer the beneficial properties we want.

Organic Rosehip Oil is best. It should come in a dark glass bottle. Here are 2 brands I like (click pictures to learn more):
