Re: Rose hip essential oil
Rosehip is an excellent healer ~ There are several carrier oils and essential oils which may be supportive.
Carrier oils known for their anti-inflammatory action include Tamanu, Evening Primrose, Borage, Hemp, Kukui and Coconut oils. You can find these blended in our Super Skin Care base.
Essential oils which are known for their soothing-skin action include German Chamomile, Lavender, Helichrysum, and Sea Buckthorn (among many).
We've had customers really appreciate our Soothing Skin Extra blend for just such the application you're mentioning. Want to make it yourself? Try this:
Make one (or more) ounces of base oil using 1/4 Tamanu
and 3/4 Kukui
oils - OR, 1 ounce of our Super Skin Care base
To each ounce of base oil, add:
12 drops German Chamomile
(steam or CO2)
12 drops Helichrysum
(Balkan or Corsican)
12 drops of any of our Lavenders
(Bulgarian is an excellent choice here)
