Legends of Rosehip Oil:

The History of this oil comes from major regions of Chile and Himalayas which are in Northern part of the Indian Sub-continent.

plus-sign-22The oil has been used by native people in Chile for centuries, and has only been validated by scientists fairly recently.

The University of Santiago conducted research on 180 individuals in 1983 of the effects that the Rosehip Oil had on them.  Their test studied people with extensive facial scarring, acne scarring, deep wrinkles, UV damage, radiation damage, burn scars, surgical scars, premature aging, dermatitis, and other skin related problems.  In these tests, rosehip seed oil regenerated the skin, reduced scars and wrinkles, prevented the advancement of wrinkles and aging, and helped skin to regain its natural colour and tone. Their skin was wrinkled, and had sun spots from overexposure to the sun.  After four months of applying rosehip seed oil daily, their wrinkles and sun spots had almost completely disappeared, and the skin had a fresher and healthier look.

tableSince this test, this oil has been widely used in the Cosmetic industry. But of course when they mix this precious oil with chemicals, it loses its all the beneficial nutrients.

During World War 2 when England was in a serious shortage of Citrus fruits, the fruits of Rosehip were used instead because apparently, they were known to have 60 times more Vitamin C content than the citrus fruits.

It is also used widely in traditional medicine including Chinese and Ayurvedic (Ancient Indian).



Following is a small list of the cures that this oil can make:

  • Stretch marks
  • UV damage from overexposure to the sun
  • Scars from surgery, burns, and acne
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Wrinkles and premature skin aging
  • Hyper-pigmentation
  • Dermatitis
  • Burns, including those from radiation and sunburns
  • Age spots
  • Brittle nails
  • Dry and damaged hair

You can buy this oil in any health store or Asian grocery stores.

You can apply this at night just before you go to sleep on the effected areas. Apply it everyday until the desired results show up.

Just pretend it is a facial moisturiser and don’t be scared of applying oil on face even if you have oily skin. This doesn’t mean your skin will get more oily. You will only see the benefits Smile
