Uses: Used on nails, Rosehip Carrier Oil hydrates and strengthens dryness and brittleness. It can be massaged directly onto nails using fingertips or cotton swabs and allowed to dry. This treatment is ideal for use just before bed and will restore nail health, especially if applied every night for at least one week..
Used in hair, Rosehip Oil may be applied directly to the scalp and left on for an hour before washing it out. This will hydrate dry hair while soothing, eliminating, and preventing dandruff. For a conditioning hair treatment, Rosehip Oil can either be added to a preferred natural shampoo, rubbed onto the scalp before showering, or applied to hair and left on overnight. To restore the luster to dull hair and to repair damaged strands, Rosehip Oil can be combined with Coconut Carrier Oil before being applied to the hair and scalp. These oils can also be gently heated in a bowl before being massaged for 10 minutes into natural, permed, or colored hair. The result will be hair that feels softer, smoother, and stronger.
Used in a massage, Rosehip Oil’s thin consistency allows it to be absorbed into skin faster than many other oils and it will not clog pores. To prevent and fade blemishes, to minimize the appearance of stretch marks, to relieve sunburn and inflammation, and to balance the production of collagen, 2-3 drops of Rosehip Oil can be massaged into the affected area daily for 2-3 months or until there are visible results. Alternatively, Rosehip Oil can be blended with essential oils that are known to diminish the appearance of unwanted dark spots, such as Tea Tree Essential Oil or Lemon Essential Oil. For an aromatherapy massage, Rosehip Oil can be enhanced by blending it with Peppermint Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Chamomile Essential Oil, or Frankincense Essential Oil.
