What is Rosehip Oil?

Rosehip oil comes from the seeds of rose hips. Rosehips are the base of the rose that hold the petals into place.

The unique characteristics of rosehip oil: An amber colored oil that smells like black herbal tea. Rosehip oil is a very light weight oil that quickly absorbs deeply into your skin. Once you apply rosehip oil to your skin and rub it in, the oil will absorb within five minutes. Rosehip oil is also popularly known as rosehip seed oil.

Miranda Kerr, the lovely Victoria’s secret Angel, has just developed an all natural and certified organic skin care line.

She grew up in Australia  with a very keen sense and love for living organically. When she moved and started living in busy cities, she could not find natural and organic skin care, so she decided to establish her own.

She encourages women to detoxify their skin by using all natural organic skin care and living a clean lifestyle. She also mentions the fact that the average woman uses beauty products on her skin that have over 200 chemical ingredients. More than half of these chemicals absorb into the blood stream!

How to Use Rosehip Oil / How to Properly Apply:

Rosehip oil is unlike any other oil applied to the skin. This is why it may seem confusing the first time you apply it to you skin.

It’s known as a “dry oil”, meaning it’s “non-greasy”.

When you apply it to you skin, it will completely absorb into your skin after ten minutes, rather than sit on top of your skin.

How Do you use rosehip oil on your face?:

  • Take a dime sized amount of oil
  • Apply small dots around your face or body
  • Blend using your fingertips
  • Massage gently into the skin
  • Allow to absorb for ten minutes
  • For extra dry areas, apply another application
  • If any areas do not absorb after ten minutes, wipe and blend into other areas

Now that you know how to properly apply rosehip oil, here’s my personal routine:
