Rose hips are what are left after the rose petals fall off a bush. Subsequently, rose hip oil is then extracted from the pods. The wild rose bush grows in the southern Andes as well many areas of the world. It’s high in essential fatty acids such as omega-6 and omega-3 and super antioxidants beta-carotene, lycopene and phytosterol.
Rose hip seed oil aka rosa mosqueta was used by Mayans, Egyptians and Native Americans for its healing properties thousands of years ago. From various research, it seems a lot of the natural oils were recognized for their benefits and used accordingly a long time ago but we are only just tapping back into them again in recent years.
Benefits of Rose hip Seed Oil
Rose hip seed oil is another light and non-greasy oil, which makes it excellent for fine hair. The antioxidants in it also make it an excellent treatment for scalp conditions such as eczema and itchy scalp.
You can work on your dry hair and scalp issues with rose hip seed oil by warming up the oil then massaging it into your scalp. Leave in for 45 – 60 minutes then wash out with a mild shampoo and condition. Your hair will feel soft and moisturized. It will also eliminate the scalp conditions after constant use over a few months.
You can also use it as part of your pre-poo treatment by adding it into the 5 Ingredients for an Awesome Pre-poo mix.
