Red Raspberry Seed oil is rich in polyphenols.

It’s naturally gentle moisturizer that protects all types of skin, dry, oily and combination, from environmental stress, age damage, and photodamage from sunlight.

It’s a light oil that leaves a thin, nongreasy film which keeps moisture from leaving your skin, keeping it soft and bouncy, not dried out and old.

It mixed well with other carrier oils, aloe vera, and under cosmetics.

It is cold pressed from red raspberry seeds (Rubus idaeus L.), and is rich in Omega-9 as well as Omega-3 and Omega-6. Most oils contain Omega-3 and Omega-6, but not Omega-9. Linoleic, alpha linolenic, and oleic acids. This contains eighty-three percent (83%) essential fatty acids.

It helps to relieve such skin conditions as redness, age spots, flakiness, redness, wrinkles, rashes, itchiness, and dryness.

It contains large amounts of Vitamin E and Vitamin A, both antioxidants that protect you from free radicals.

It promotes skin moisturization and skin cell fluidity and enhances skin barrier function. And it enhances the skin’s ability to heal itself. It decreases trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL), improving moisturization, cell signaling and immunity.

The Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 are essential fatty acids, which reduce irritation, scaly, flaky, wrinkles, red, scaly, and dermitis.

All of these antioxidants help this oil to protect your skin against photodamage. The villain is the ultraviolet spectrum (UVA and UVB) in direct sunlight. That’s what helps to break down your skin’s collagen and elastin, which are your skin’s internal structure. When they erode, your skin sags and wrinkles appear.

The conventional advice is to stay out of the sun, and you certainly should avoid getting sunburned. However, ordinary sun screens and sun blocks can never protect you a hundred percent, if only because you don’t use them thoroughly one hundred percent of the time you are outside in the sun.

Therefore, it’s good to apply antioxidants directly to your skin to support its ability to protect itself.

However, that does not mean you should use or apply this oil as a replacement for sunscreens.

Red Raspberry Seed oil is used in such commercial skin care products as balms, creams and products that treat irritated skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis.

This oil contains a large amount of polyphenols and tocopherols (Vitamin E).

The Vitamin E helps protect your skin from age spots, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity. Obviously, these are all things which make your skin look older, so Vitamin E helps keep your skin looking younger.

Also, this oil is noncomedogenic, meaning it will not clog pores.

It’s also a potent anti-inflammatory, in a study beating out other well-known, common oils for its ability to soothe and calm skin.

And it contains a high amount of ellagic acid, a plant polyphenol believed to benefit human health.

It has a high concentration of antioxidants, and these serve to keep the oil from going rancid, so it as a long shelf life, around two years. However, you should still keep it stored in a cool, dark place, preferably your refrigerator.

Red Raspberry Seed oil runs bright gold to reddish in color.

It also contains Vitamin C.

Not long ago, some people claimed the ketones from the raspberry fruit could help you lose weight, but that’s got nothing to do with the oil.

There are over two hundred species of red raspberries. They grow in temperate climates around the world. They belong to the genus Rebus, the same as roses, apples, almonds and cherries.

The fruit is made up of around a hundred drupelets, those tiny segments packed tightly together, each one containing a tiny seed.

The Romans were the first people known to have cultivated red raspberries for food and medicine.

The fruit contains flavonoid phytochemicals, including anthocyanins, ellagic acid, quercetin, gallic acid, catechines, kaempferol, and salicylic acid.

Xylitol the low-calorie sugar substitute is extracted from raspberries.

Its elegiac acid showed the destruction of collagen, thereby reducing wrinkles. And dampens the inflammatory response. And protects against ultraviolet light damage.

Protect your skin right now.

Argan oil itself is a powerful beauty serum full of antioxidant power, can be combined with other oils such as Bergamot oil, an essential oil, to create a blend that makes your skin smooth, healthy and beautiful.

In the past fifteen years, this oil — once difficult to obtain outside Morocco — has become increasingly popular as an ingredient in cosmetics in Europe and North America. It is also increasingly popular and fashionable to use it directly as a carrier beauty oil, alone or combined with other oils, including essential oils such as Bergamot.

Because of its high antioxidant contents, this oil can be more resistant to oxidation damage than olive oil.

The Berber people where it grows have used the oil on their skin for hundreds perhaps thousands of years.

It contains: 44% Oleic acid, 30% Alpha-linolenic acid, 12% Palmitic acid, 6% Stearidonic acid, 5% Linoleic acid, and 3% Myristic acid.

Also: tocopherols (vitamin E), phenols, carotenes, squalene and fatty acids. Main phenols are caffeic acid, oleuropein, vanillic acid, tyrosol, catechol, resorcinol, epicatechin and catechin.

It’s highly moisturizing, so it helps with dry skin, flaking, eczema, and peeling scaly patches. It contains a high volume of Vitamin E, which helps it protect skin against photodamage caused by the ultraviolet A and B spectrums in sunlight, UVA and UVB.

It also helps to regular acne by normalizing skin’s natural production of sebum (oil or wax from sebaceous glands). It is not greasy.

The antioxidants also help to regenerate and rejuvenate damaged skin cells, and reduce inflammation. Thus soothing red, cracked, inflamed, itchy, rough and sore areas.

The nutritional contents also help strengthen and regenerate your skin’s collagen and elastin. Those are your skin’s structural support. When age and free radicals damage it, your skin is weakened, developing wrinkles and fine lines, including crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes. Dealing with that makes your skin stronger, more elastic and supple. It smooths out those wrinkles.

By increasing skin elasticity, using during pregnancy may help reduce or prevent stretch marks. Rub a little into your breasts, stomach, bottom and thighs during your pregnancy.

It regulates your skin’s pH balance, protecting it from damage. It also diminishes scars.

A good habit to get into is to apply a few drops of the oil to the t area of your face and any problems areas every night just before you go to bed, so it can soak into your skin work its magic while you sleep.

Also, comb a few drops into your hair at the same time. It moisturizes dry, curly, frizzy hair, making it more manageable.

Rub a little bit onto your finger and toe nails and cuticles also every night. This helps moisturize dry and cracked nails.

Also apply to cracked heels and lips, especially during the low humidity and dry skin of winter air.

It is made from the kernels of the argan tree. This tree — Argania spinosa — is the only species within the genus argania, from the word for the tree in the Berber language of Shiha.

Argan is native to the western Mediterranean area, particularly the Sous valley and Tindouf in Algeria. These locations are semidesert, and that’s the climate argan likes. It’s also grown in the Negev area of Israel.

The branches began growing close to the ground, and then spread out wide to catch lots of sunlight. This provides shade under which to grow other pasture grasses.

They grow eight to ten meters high. The trunks are gnarled and thorny. They can live up to two hundred years.

The roots grow deep, no doubt to reach the most water possible. This helps the land resist desertification, encroachment by the surrounding Sahara Desert, and soil erosion.

The fruit takes over a year to ripen. It’s small, from two to four centimeters long and from one and a half to three centimeters wide. A thick peel surrounds a pulpy pericarp, which contains the hard nut, which contains two or three seeds. The oil is in the seeds.

Traditionally, the tree is used for timber and forage for goats as well as a source of the oil. Goats are a common domesticated animals, and they climb up the trees to eat the top leaves. Goats also eat the fruits, and the seeds may be collected from their manure.

Over the past one hundred years the arganeraie forests have lost half their area due to charcoal-making and overgrazing. Over 8,000 hectares have been designated a UNESCO biosphere reserve.

Now that local people have an economic incentive to preserve the trees, it’s hoped they will choose over sustainable harvesting of the oil over cutting down the trees. Often, rights to the fruit are government by local traditions and law.

In Morocco, much of the work producing argan oil is done by women’s cooperatives.

The collected fruit are dried in the sun.

The most labor-intensive task is extracting the seeds from the fruit. The discarded pulp is used to feed animals. The kernals can be stored and used to make argan oil for up to twenty years later.

The hard nuts are cracked by hand between two stones. The seeds may be removed and roasted. However, if the oil is destined to be sold for cosmetic use, it’s not roasted.

After roasting, the seeds are grown in a stone rotary quern with a little water, which turns them into a brown paste. Workers squeeze the paste by hand to extract the oil. The remaining paste is fed to cattle. This hand pressed oil is good for three to six months.

The oil is left stationary for two weeks to allow the sediment to settle to the bottom.

It takes one woman three days to produce just one liter of this oil.

People eat the oil by dipping bread into it, and on coucous and salads. One dip, called amlou, is made from peanuts and almonds, and sometimes sweetened with honey.

The oil is good for all skin types, including sensitive, dry and acne-prone. That’s why it’s often called “liquid gold” or “gold of Morocco.”

You can also add it to facial toner. And to your facial mask. To make your face glow, add a few drops to your foundation, bronzer or tinted moisturizer.

Add a few drops to your hair conditioner, and leave on your hair a long time. Add a few drops to your bath or body oil.

Of course, no one oil — or anything else — is a perfect, total solutions to health and beauty issues.

Therefore, sometimes you see Argan oil added to other oils, including Bergamot essential oil.

Mongongo oil (also known as Manketti oil) provides your hair with the nutrients it needs to have the full, thick body and special glow you want others to see.

If your hair is limp, weak, worn-out and tired, it’s hungry, probably starved for the nutrition it needs to look healthy and happy.

Manketti comes from Latin, and Mongongo is what the Kalahari Desert San people call it.

Your hair also needs simple moisture. Mongongo’s polysaturated fatty acids form a waterproof seal around your strands, sealing in their natural moisture, acting as a humectant. By bonding with the cells on the surface of your hairs, the oil also smooths the surface and adds gloss and shine.

This oil contains eleostearic acid, which absorbs the ultraviolet light in sunlight. And it contains linoleic acid, which helps it remain strong and shiny.

Mongongo can also be used to moisturize and protect your skin, nails and lips. However, unlike most beauty oils, it’s primarily for your hair, secondarily for other areas.

It repairs split ends and broken strands, tames frizzy hair, smoothes the surface, strengthens and softens hair. By strengthening and moisturizing your hair, you help it retain waves and curls.

This oil is also good for your scalp. It stops itching and reduces dandruff.

The Mongongo (or Manketti) tree grows in arid and semi-arid conditions throughout Southern Africa, such as in the sandy soil of the Kalahari Desert. Including areas that have a wide range of temperatures, from sub-freezing to scorching heat. Countries include: northern Namibia, southern Angola, Zambia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Malawi. It’s quite hardy, as it must be to survive such an environment, including periodic droughts.

The tree (Schinziophyton rautanenii) produces a fruit which is a tasty and nutritious favorite for the local people and also for elephants. The fruit is reddish-brown and egg-shaped. The nuts are inside the fruit, and must be extracted. A labor-saving way to do this is simply to remove the seeds from elephant dung. Elephants eat the fruit, digest it, and then their digestive systems get rid of the hard nuts. The hard nut shells must be broken open to extract the kernels, which are the nuts containing Mongongo oil.

The nuts are over 57% fat, and contain the minerals: calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, phosphorus, sodium, potassium and zinc. And various kinds of Vitamin B: riboflavin, eleostearic Acid and thiamine. The oil comes from cold pressing the nuts.

The nut contains a lot of Vitamin E to preserve it through the heat of the day and the cold of night. Each nut contains 650 mg of Vitamin E. Most of that is in the form of g-tocopherol, the most heat-resistant. For your skin, Vitamin E is an antioxidant good for protecting your skin from photodamage caused by exposure to the ultraviolet radiation in direct sunlight. Vitamin E also gives oils a long shelf life, because it continues to preserve the oil from rancidity.

It contains the saturated fatty acids: palmitic acid and stearic acid. And the monosaturated fatty acid: oleic acid.

As an anti-inflammatory as well as a moisturizer, this oil relieves flaky, red, itchy, irritated skin. Manketti oil relieves boils, acne, sunburn, fungal infections and and rash. It softens skin and reduces wrinkles. It makes skin stronger and more elastic, but does not clog pores. It makes a great massage oil. It helps other nutrition to penetrate more deeply into your skin. Plus, it encourages skin regeneration to heal wounded or damaged cells.

Plus, it contains high levels of the antioxidant Vitamin C.

You can and should add Manketti oil to your nighttime routine. Just comb a few drops through your air before you go to bed at night, and you’ll wake up with healthier, stronger and shinier hair.

The tree grows 7 to 20 meters high, and is in the family Euphorbiaceae. Its branches spread out wide. The wood is pale yellow, and lightweight like balsa.

It does not bear fruit for at least its first twenty-five years. People go up to 25 kilometers (15 miles) into the forest to collect it. They eat the fruit, and also the yellow kernels, either raw or roasted. Archeological evidence show the San people have been eating Manketti nuts for at least 7,000 years.

The Mongongo oil is a rich yellow or lime green color. The San and other people have traditionally used it on their hair and skin. The hard, outer shells of the nuts, when broken, are thrown to divine fortunes.

Local people have traditionally used the oil for cooking as well as on their skins and hair. It has been imported to Europe to use in margarine. It’s also used in soaps, cosmetics, hair products and varnishes.

Mongongo is a tree nut. Therefore, if you have a tree nut allergy, check with your doctor before applying it to your skin or hair.

Moringa oil is also extremely healthy and beneficial as a skin care beauty oil even as the plant itself is becoming a well-known superfood in the nutritional supplement field.

It goes back to ancient Eygpt. They left vases of the oil of moringa in their tombs for the dead to use in the afterlife. Medicinal texts surviving from ancient Greece and Roman extol moringa for its health benefits.

The oil contains the plant hormones cytokinins, which delay tissue aging and destruction, a direct anti-aging benefit. They help restore health to damaged skin.

Cytokinins are beneficial biochemical plant hormones. They stimulate the production of new cells to regenerate your skin. They also delay cell death and protect against the oxidation of cells by free radicals.

The most powerful cytokinin is zeatin. Moringa contains a thousand times more zeatin than any other food. And four times as much chlorophyll as wheat grass.

It’s also rich, 72%, in the Omega-9 oleic acid, which acts as humectant by putting a very thin film over your skin to seal in moisture. That prevents it from escaping into the air. Therefore, it helps relieve dry, flaky, scaly, itching, scrunchy scratchy skin, plus dermitis, psoriasis and ezema. It’s also anti-inflammatory, so it soothes red, inflamed, raw and irritated epidermis. That also makes it a spot treatment for acne. And its regenerating ability helps to heal acne scars.

This oil also contains behenic acid, which works on both skin and hair to keep them smoothy and soft. Behenic acid is also called docosanoic acid. It’s a long-chain saturated fatty acid.

Plus essential fatty acids, mostly monounsaturated, Vitamin A and Vitamin C.

Besides containing lots of oleic acid, the oil of moringa has linoleic acid a polyunsaturated fatty acid, palmitic, stearic, myristic, Vitamin E, palmitoleic acid and phytosterin.

It’s rich in copper and calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and zinc, important nutrients for your skin.

Free radicals are the villains in your body that cause wear and tear to your body’s tissues, causing them to age. In skin, free radicals destroy its connective structure, the collagen and elastin, causing wrinkles and skin sagging, including underarm sagging skin and face and jowl sagging. Therefore, Moringa helps protect your skin and reverse the damage.

Other antioxidants in it are: rutin, beta-sitosterol, kaempferol, quercetin, chlorogenic acid, moringine, moringinine, niaziminin, rhamnetin and caffeoylquinic acid.

Moringa seed oil contains antiseptic properties, making it good to apply to cuts, scratches, abrasions, minor wounds, bruises, sunburn, rashes, burns, insect bites and punctures, to help guard you against infection. The antiinflammatory oleic oil soothes the damage, reducing the pain and making you feel better, and helping the damaged area to heal instead of signal more pain.

This oil clears up blackheads, whiteheads and spots. It tightens skin pores.

It has anti-fungal properties, making it excellent for athlete’s foot, jock itch and ringworm.

Because of the high percentage of oleic acid, moringa is similar to olive oil, but is much lighter, and close to clear. It’s carrier oil which your skin absorbs deeply, but it doesn’t leave behind a greasy feel. You can use it to dilute essential oils which you wish to apply to your skin, although moringa is very healthy and beautifying on its own.

Its Vitamin C helps reduce fine line such as crow’s feet at the corners of the eye and wrinkles because it strengthens collagen. Vitamin E is especially important because it protects your skin from photodamage. That’s what happens when your skin gets exposed to direct sunlight, so the ultraviolet rays hit it. That is the biggest single stress on your skin, and so the biggest cause of skin appearance aging. But skin fortified with the antioxidant Vitamin E is much better able to resist the damaging effects of sunlight.

The oil is tremendously stable, with a shelf life of 5 years, far longer than other beauty oils. It’s the most stable oil in nature. It doesn’t go rancid. That indicates it is highly resistant to spoiling, which is caused by oxidation. That’s due to the high concentration of antioxidants in it. Once applied to your skin, those antioxidants help your skin resist free radical damage. And because of this property, it’s used a lot as an additive in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. It’s especially being added to moisturizers, because it softens skin and reduces puffiness, including under the eyes.

Besides helping to beautify skin and hair, this oil is good for condition rough, dry, peeling lips in the cold, dry air and low humidity of winter weather.

For your hair, this oil also works well as a moisturizer, coating the strands to seal in their natural moisture so they continue to look young and healthy. It’s good for weak, dull listless tired hair. For your scalp, it reduces dandruff, itching and flaking. It nourishes your hair follicles, and repairs split ends.

Moringa also works well on dry, dull, cracked finger nails.

Late at night before you go to bed, apply a few drops of moringa oil to your face and any problem areas of skin on your body. To add lots of luster and body to your hair, comb a few drops of the oil through all your hair. Rubs a few drops into your finger nails and toe nails. Then go to bed. Within a few days you’ll notice a great difference in your appearance. You face will glow and your will shine.

Or you can do the same routine, just adding the oil to your usual moisturizer. It will improve the performance of any other cream or oil you are using.

The moringa tree grows throughout South and Southeast Asia, northern South America, the Caribbean region, Central America, some Pacific islands and parts of Africa. It apparently originated in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. The name comes from the Tamil word murungai for drumstick.

It is the only genus in Moringaceae, the flowering plant family. That genus contains thirteen species, from small plants to large tree. However, moringa oleifera is the most common, and is the species this post is about.

Moringa oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the moringa tree. They yield a 38-40% oil, which is edible as well as a nourishing beauty oil for your skin. It’s also called ben oil, because it contains so much behenic acid. However, only the oil pressed from moringa oleifera tree is called ben oil. You can get oil from other species of moringa, but it’s not the same.

It’s also known as the drumstick tree, the ben oil tree, the benzoil tree and the horseradish tree. Its small leaves are extremely nutrious, and good to add to salads, soups or any dish you can throw in a leafy vegetable. Basically you can eat them like spinach.

Also, they can be dried and crushed into powder. Such powders are being sold as a superfood.

The leaves contain: Vitamin B complex, beta-carotene,vitamin C, manganese and vitamin K. And nine times as much protein as yogurt. The leaves also contain a lot of polyphenols and chlorogenic acid, which slows the absorption of sugar by your cells. And isothiocyanates which, together with the polyphenols and flavenoids, have anti-inflammatory effects.

The tree grows quickly, and is resistant to drought, though it also grows in many tropical areas of Asia where it gets plenty of rain. It grows to 2 to 40 feet high. The trunk has a whitish-gray color, and the flowers are white. The leaves have a sort of rounded trifoil look.

India produces the most moringa, harvesting from 1.1 to 1.3 million tonnes of the fruit.

The seed pods, which resemble drumsticks and are therefore the tree got that name, can also be cooked and eaten.

The oil is even used as a lubricant for small mechanical devices such as watches.

It has the quality of enfleurage. It absorbs aromas of other oils added to it, whether essential oils or herbs, spices, seeds, nuts and chemicals. Therefore, it’s a good base for making perfume. That’s one thing ancient people used it for thousands of years ago, and it’s still being used in perfumes.

Moringa is attracting a rising interest in the developed world as a superfood. People are buying the dried and crushed powder to add to smoothies. In the developing world, where most moringa grows, and where many people are poor and hungry, development agencies are using it to relieve malnutrition.

The Ayurvedic system of healing of India uses moringa for 300 different ailments.

Patchouli oil is good to use when you’re feeling sad and down. Its aroma tells your brain to make you feel good by producing dopamine and serotonin. This property makes it a popular and widely used essential oil.

It also stimulates your produce to produce the sex-related hormones, which are estrogen and testosterone. On your skin, it stimulate the growth of new cells, which repairs age damage, reduces scars and lightens dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

It’s an astringent, so it tightens your skin so you look younger and more beautiful.

The plant grows in Asia, native to Sri Lanka. Centuries ago, European traders valued patchouli so much they traded gold for it, weight for weight. That is, they’d pay an ounce of gold for an ounce of patchouli.

Actually, traders from the Orient brought patchouli leaves with their shipments of silk, because the strong odor of the patchouli repelled the moths which liked to eat the silk. The silk cloth absorbed the patchouli aroma, and so its scent become closely associated with Asian products in the minds of Europeans.

In more recent times, patchouli became famous as the odor hippies would burn at home or in head shops to disguise the smell of marijuana.

Warning: Patchouli probably should not be used by pregnant women. Some say it is safe after the first trimester. Consult your health practitioner.

If you use large amounts of this oil it might cause overstimulation even though it normally has a calming, sedative effect. It can make your skin skin more sensitive to sunlight, as well as result in loss of appetite, so do not use if you suffer from any eating disorders. Also, do not use if you are still recovering from an illness.

Patchouli is popular with the perfume industry, just like jasmine, rose and sandalwood. People claim it’s an aphrodisiac. Maybe that just comes as a natural consequence of how it increases the pleasure hormones in your brain.

It’s one of the more grounding, earthy and centering oils in aromatherapy.

It’s a skin tonic, toning and strengthing skin. It also normalizes the skin’s production of sebum. When your skin produces too much sebum or natural oil, that can lead to acne. When it doesn’t produce enough, your skin is dry. Therefore, it’s good for dry, flaking, scaling and chapped skin, including for people with sensitive or mature skin.

It helps to prevent wrinkles as well and speed up the healing of skin wounds, because it’s a cytophylactic. That means it stimulates the generation of new body cells.

It’s anti-inflammatory, calming your angry, irritated, red, rash and enflamed skin conditions.

It has antiseptic properties as well, making it a good oil to apply to minor wounds, cuts, sores, abrasion, scrapes and any other skin damage to protect against infection. It’s also anti-fungal, so it’s good to apply on athlete’s foot, jock itch and ringworm.

It’s reportedly good for sores, psoriasis, dermititis and eczema.

Because of its powerful aroma, it’s effective as an insect repellent, driving away mosquitoes.

Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin) is a member of the labiatae family. The word comes from the Tamil language patchai.

Patchouli oil comes from steam distilling the leaves. In some places people eat the leaves. And you can make an herbal tea from the leaves.

It contains: Alpha Patchoulene, Beta Patchoulene, Alpha Guaiene, Alpha Bulnesene, Caryophyllene, Norpatchoulenol, Patchouli Alcohol, Seychellene and Pogostol.

It blends well with such other essential oils as: Clary Sage, Bergamot, Lavender, Geranium and Myrrh.

Because Patchouli is an essential oil, you should not apply it to your skin directly. Put two drops into a teaspoon of a carrier oil such as olive, coconut or moringa, and mix well.

It is a thick oil, from light yellow to dark brown in color.

You can put a few drops into water in a diffuser and spray it around the world. That will make you and everybody else feel relaxed and happy.

For a great, relaxing bath, add a few drops to the hot water before you chill out in the tub.

It contains the essential fatty acids linolenic acid Omega-3, linoleic acid Omega-6 and Omega-9. Vitamin E. Lycopene. Beta carotene. It contains the natural form of Vitamin A, tretinoin or all-trans-retinoic acid.

Research shows that this natural Vitamin A in particular protects your skin’s collagen and elastin from damage from the ultraviolet wavelengths of natural sunlight. Collagen and elastin are like the steam beams and rods that form the structural support holding your skin cells together. When they get weak from overexposure to sunlight and other stresses, your skin loosens and sags and sinks into wrinkles. Sunlight creates enzymes that destroy that substructure. Vitamin A decreases the activity of those enzymes, preventing premature aging.

This oil is also good for your hair. Rub into your scalp to relieve dandruff and strengthen dry, brittle hair.

It’s also effective at moisturizing your nails. If your nails are dry, cracked or brittle, rub them with a drop of this oil every night before you go to bed, and within a week you’ll see great improvement.

For your skin’s health and beauty, apply this oil to your face and any problem areas every night before you go to bed, so it has all night to soak in, be absorbed and heal and moisturize your complexion.

However, it works best if you apply it several times a day. In the morning you can add it to your makeup, moisturizer or other oils.

Do not apply this oil to active acne. It can help clear up old acne scars.

Store in a cool, dark place such as your refrigerator to prevent it from becoming rancid.

Lycopene and beta carotene are antioxidants, micronutrients that protect your body from damage caused by free radicals, thus helping to protect your skin.

The high amount of lycopene gives rosehip oil its rich, amber color.

It is cold pressed from the seeds of the Rosa moschata or Rosa rubiginosa species of wild rose bushes. It can also be extracted from Rosa canina. That species grows in South Africa and Europe. The musk rose grows in the Himalayan mountains.

Rose hip oil penetrates to the deepest layers of your skin, nourishing it on every level. This action is possible because the molecules of Vitamin A are so small.

Both the Vitamin C and Vitamin A strengthen and thicken your collagen. This helps to reduce wrinkles and fine lines or crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes, as well as prevent new ones from forming.

Vitamin A protects collagen from sunlight photo damage and Vitamin C stimulates the production of new collagen.

Sunlight also causes discoloration and dark spots in skin. This oil’s antioxidants and essential fatty acids help repair the damage, and lower inflammation to soothe your skin. Thus, it’s good for red, itchy, raw skin and sunburn. It may help reduce facial rosacea.

The essential fatty acids reduce scarring and help regenerate skin cells. Therefore, rose hip oil has an anti-aging benefit for your skin. Also, they are emollients. They improve the permeability and flexibility of your skin. They also help promote repair of damaged skin tissue. Good for age spots, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, dermitis and burns.

It’s especially good for dry skin. Apply to cracked, flaky skin and elbows, knees and cracked heels. And for your lips that are dry in the winter from the drying air in the low humidity. It’s good for eczema and psoriasis.

It’s been used to heal and beautify skin for centuries by various people around the world, including the ancient Egyptians, the Andean Indians of Chile, Mayans and other Native Americans. Some of the rosehips grow in the area of the Andes Mountains. They prefer temperate to cold climates.

It’s now a common ingredient in commercial skin care products.

It moisturizes your skin by forming a microthin layer of oil on your skin. You don’t feel it, but it prevents the moisture within your skin from evaporating into the air. Therefore, it remains where it belongs, within your skin, keeping it healthy and youthful.

Rosehips are the fruit of rose bushes. They’re also called rose haw and rose hep. They are usually red to orange in color. They are good to eat, but usually not raw because they contain fine hairs. They are used to make jellies, jams and marmalades. Also syrup, soup, wine, pie and even bread.

Rosehips are high in Vitamin C. Years ago, almost all Vitamin C supplements claiming to have all natural ingredients instead of plain old ascorbic acid were made from rosehips. They also contain beta carotene, lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin. all carotenoids.grazer-rosehip-syrup-03
