Rose Hip Oil

Rose Hip Oil is one of many popular carrier oils used in massage, aromatherapy, and other body-work treatments.

Rose hip oil (from several Rosa species, e.g. Rosa canina L.) is extracted and refined using adaptations of various methods.

It may have a slightly castor oil-like odour, but also positive properties for use as a massage carrier oil. Textbooks list rose hip oil as being beneficial for burns, eczema, scars, and wounds, and areas in which skin re-generation is required. However, note that as the skin can be a delicate essential organ, no products on damaged skin without expert advice and supervision.
Rose hip oil may also be used as an ingredient in some cosmetic creams and lotions.
