e3’s Organic Rosehip Oil for Smoother, Silkier Skin
e3’s Organic Rosehip oil is a complexion-boosting superstar. It’s easily absorbed by your skin but doesn’t feel greasy. It’s wonderful for dull or aging skins as it softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps repair sun damage, reduces scarring, and improves elasticity. It also protects the skin from environmental damage and is helpful to those dealing with rosacea, eczema, dermatitis, sunburn, radiation burns, and stretch marks.
Where does this miracle oil come from? Our Organic Rosehip Seed Oil is cold-pressed from the tiny seeds of a South American, wild rose plant and has been used for centuries by the Andean Indians.
Rosehip Seed Oil is a rich, emollient oil that penetrates well into the skin; its regenerative properties have been attributed to its essential fatty acid content (linoleic and linolenic acids) and the presence of retinoic acid (a vitamin A derivative), which supports collagen production and cellular regeneration.
How to Use Organic Rosehip Oil to Soothe Dry, Chapped Skin
You can use this product alone or add (10% or more) to other products such as moisturizers, massage oils, or facial oils.
e3 Tip — Rosehip Seed Oil is an excellent lip balm! Pour the carrier oil into a roll-on bottle and you can apply it directly to dry, chapped lips.
General Information About Carrier Oils
Carrier oils are also known as base oils, massage oils, and fixed oils. They are extracted from various types and parts of plants, including the nuts, seeds, leaves, and flowers.
Carrier oils are used in aromatherapy to dilute essential oils to a level that is safe to use on the skin. They mainly consist of fatty acids or lipids. These fatty acids have therapeutic properties that add additional benefits to an essential oil blend.
When combining essential oils with carrier oils, follow the instruction leaflet included with each essential oil, paying attention to the safety guidelines. As with essential oils, carrier oils can be blended together to create a synergy. For example, to make a rich massage oil for dry skin, add some jojoba oil to sweet almond oil. For mature skin, add some rosehip seed oil or for wound care add some tamanu.
At Essential 3, we select what we believe to be the best carrier oils. Whenever possible, we use unrefined versions of the oils as they contain more natural constituents, including vitamins and other beneficial ingredients.
