Rosehip seed oil, how do I use it? Can it be used alone or does it have to be mixed?

Just received it and forgot what you girls said what you do with this. Do I mix it with moisturizer or use it alone? Can I use it under my eyes since they are so dry? Thanks for any help.

Just curious......WHY did you buy something that you don't even know what its for or how to use it? Aren't those things you know BEFORE buying something?

I myself haven't used Rosehip oil but, you can use it on your face and in your hair. You can apply it under your eyes. You can either mix it with your moisturizer or wear it alone. You can add just a drop to your moisturizer and apply, or apply a couple drops to your face and decide if you still need/want to apply your regular moisturizer.

Thank you Nascarfan 48. I will try that. Poodlpoo, Does it really matter to you? It was suggested by someone on this board but I forgot how she used it - not that I owe you an explanation. My question to you is If you didn't have an answer to the question, then why did you even open the thread? Last edited on 2/22/2012

This is what I use in conjunction w/ aloe vera gel as my moisturizer. Per GoW: it is high in fatty acids! linoleic (48%); linolenic (35%); Oleic (16%); palmitic (8%) - the same acids that Dr. D uses in her Hydroshield product. Also from GoW: Remarkable for damaged, agitated, dry, and mature skin - none of which I have, but a drop or two mixed w/ the aloe make a perfect moisturizer. Yes, use under your eyes!

I've never used this on my hair, but I don't see why you couldn't.

This is the first oil I ever used on my face--starting about 10 years ago now. I remember the first brand I tried was from a line called Trilogy. They have a following, but not much press on them here in the States (I think they're from NZealand). Anyhoo, I really loved this oil and it seemed to break the barrier for me and I since then have tried a few different oils, includring Argan. I liked the rose hip seed a lot, and loved it under and around my eyes.

Over 40. Dark hair. Fair, with mild-moderate Rosacea. Finicky skin. Did I mention--Gorgeous? ;)

Thank you so much to all the wonderful people on this board who are so helpful and kind. The rest deserve no attention or answer.

i get so sick of the sniping and mean comments that are so unneccessary.

BeautyAddiction, this is a good question ---for me at least.

i also have a bottle of this oil which i purchased awhile back and haven't used it yet.

i hope nobody bashes me for being in the same boat as the original poster.

Thank you rebel. Most people on this board are so nice, helpful and non-judgmental and some just like to fight and argue, which I will not answer or play into. I am going to mix the rose hip seed oil in my moisturizer and put over my Retin-A.

great idea!

i am going to pull mine out and start using it. thanks for reminding me that i have it and how to use it!

i almost never get involved in any of it either but sometimes it just gets to me because it is so unneccessary.

i am grateful to everyone on this board that have been so helpful to me over the years.

have a great evening :)

Rebel, life is too short to spend it being mean. You have a great evening too. I am going to watch Survivor.

Hi BA,

I use this oil & love it, I add about 4 drops with my mositurizer...

you can use like any oil, on cuticles, whatever I have left on my hands I rub in my hair...

it absorbs fast, not a non-absorbing greasy oil

From what I remember it needs to be mixed and they suggested, a carrier oil such as joboba (or maybe it was Vitamin E). It also goes rancid fast if not mixed with an oil and if it isn't refrigerated so I mixed small batches one at a time and refrigerated it.

I used a mixed of rosehip seed oil, vitamin e and another oil and it worked wonder on scarring I was attempting to prevent and I did.

I have an aromtherapy book here on the table - I was cleaning out a shelf and I will dig up some more info for you.

Yep: It is Vitamin E and it extends the shelf life.

http://www.ehow.com/facts_7162430_shelf-life-rosehip-oil_.html

Some sites says it won't go rancid fast and it has a shelf life of 6 months--I think 6 months is fast. Alot of conflicting info. Never leave it in direct sunlight.

I never used it in my hair, but if you do I imagine it will be used up faster and no worrying about shelf life then.

I have two books here on Aromatherapy, one from Keller and one from Worwood and neither one mentions Rosehip Seed Oil, sorry.

:)

SilentDance, thank you so much. I put it in the fridge and tomorrow I will go buy Vitamin E oil to mix it with. Do you know the ratio? Is it 50/50?

I just read something about 10% of Rosehip Seed oil.

It is potent and here is a sample of a mixture though it won't be your mixture.

http://naturalfacialrecipes.homestead.com/allabout_carrieroils.html

You shouldn't use too much vitamin e either. It's been so long since I played with oils and sorry I can't help much more, but I think you should be okay but I would add a carrier oil. You should easily be able to find jojoba, avocado, sweet almond oil to name a few.

To be honest I did not measure when I did my mixture I just know I used less Rosehip than the other parts because I read it potent.

:)

Before I read this I put it directly on my face earlier. Glad ou girls are so smart and I will now mix with 90% either jojoba, sweet almond oil, argon oil, etc. Thanks again all you beauties.

I've used it straight on my face at night

Why is that bad?

Not everything we read is true and if you used it with no adverse reactions than I guess it's okay but they suggest to mix it with another oil, to increase shelf life and cut down on potency.

There is a lot of conflicting information..I read it has a long shelf life then it states 6 months and I don't think that is long at all. When mixed with Vitamin E it can have a shelf life of two years but it should be refrigerated.

:)

You're welcome, but I am not in expert I just had an interest in them a while back. I used mostly carrier oils, and a lot of my essential oils got tossed because I lost interest.

I use to make this oil treatment for my hair - I called it the 7 oil treatment:

Avocado, Sweet Almond, Olive, Shea butter melted down, Grapeseed Oil (good for the hair) and it's been so long that I can't remember the other two though I think one of them is Coconut.

Anyway, I would warm the oil and apply it on my hair with a warm towel on it for about an hour then wash out. It really is a great conditioner.

BTW, if you ladies are looking for a good facial oil I am really liking Camelia Oil-it's noncomedogenic and it has sunscreen properties (though you should never use it in lieu of sunscreen). I got it at "From Nature with Love" for a very good price but shipping isn't. I think you may like it and it's also good for the hair though I just use straight up Macadamia Oil now purchased from the same company.

:)

Wow. Thanks for this website. I've been looking for something like this. This is perfect because I'm a beginner and have been interested in making skin care. {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

Genie, you're free.

First of all, I hardly ever reply on this board because of a certain poster that seems to always show up slammimg someone. That being said, I will try.

Rosehip seed oil is my personal holy grail. I use it straight, but have recently added carrot seed oil with unbelieveable results. If that is too strong for you, you could use 1/2 with macadamia nut oil too.

I keep mine refrigerated and in amber bottles. I only buy from Mountain Rose Herbs because they get theirs from Chili.

I have never put it in my hair, but if you google it, alot of people do.

Of course you can use it full strength! Sorry, I didn't mention that in my original post. If I had extremely dry skin, I wouldn't hesitate using full strength. I only use one or two drops when I mix it w/ aloe vera gel, only because that's all my skin needs.
