How to apply rosehip oil

Rosehip oil can be used pure, with a few drops of oil on the affected area and performing a gentle massage for a few minutes, until completely absorbed. It is usually applied at night or depending on the condition, it can be applied several times a day.

In cosmetic creams  it is used in concentrations of 10 to 25%, with the highest proportions being more nutritious creams. These creams can be prepared at home or bought in trusted stores.

  • Its regenerative effect is more potent if combined with a few drops of other essential oils, for example bergamot, ylang ylang, lavender or lemon.
  • Oils also have very potent healing properties, favor circulation and regeneration of the skin. So that they are not irritating, you have to apply only a drop or two per dose.
