2. Moisturizes skin

As Rosehip oil contains lots of essential fatty acids, it can be used to hydrate skin.

3. Heals scars

Acting as a skin nourishing agent and astringent, rosehip oil can treat scars by moisturizing and hydrating the affected area.

4. Eliminates dandruff

Dandruff issue and other scalp conditions can be effectively treated using the oil.

5. Treats sunburn

Rosehip oil can provide immediate soothing effect on skin that has sunburn. Along with speeding up healing, the oil can decrease inflammation.

6. Nourishes nails

In case you have brittle nails, you can use Rosehip oil to hydrate and nourish them. Massaging your nails using the oil for a week before sleeping will make them healthier and stronger.

7. Prevents aging

Regular application of Rosehip oil can prevent skin pigmentation and eliminate premature aging signs.

8. Makes skin glow

The oil can impart a healthy glow to your skin by treating wrinkles, reducing fine lines, and evening up skin tone.



1. For washing scalp

Massage the oil in its pure form into your scalp, and leave it for about 30 minutes. After that, shampoo your hair.

2. As a moisturizer

During summer, mix a few drops of the oil with water, and then spray the mixture on your skin. This will keep your skin hydrated by locking in moisture.

3. To treat irritation and inflammation

You can use Rosehip oil in its pure form to treat skin inflammation and irritation, too. For example, you can treat scars, burns, age spots, hyper-pigmentation, and stretch marks.

4. For wrinkle care

Take a small number of Rosehip oil drops on a cotton ball, and then dab your affected skin using the same a few times every day.

In case Rosehip oil seems a bit too heavy to suit your skin, you may want to mix one or two drops with your daily moisturizer.
