    What great information on rosehip oil. I suffer from acne and my pimples leave a lot of scars, without me even touching them. Using rosehip oil would definitely help. Do you know what I can mix with rosehip oil to add to my acne-care daily routine? Your help is greatly appreciated!

    • Teresa says:

      I would try just using the Rosehip Oil, but you could add a few drops of tea tree oil as well. Tea Tree has also been known to help with acne, helping to reduce breakouts. So this may help to reduce new breakouts while trying to heal the skin from previous ones.

    Hia, really loved this article. I used to treat my hand eczema with mild and organic soaps. Only few of them gave results, others were just not useful at all. I never used any kind of oils in eczema treatment but after reading your article, I would definitely give it a try.

    Do you think rosehip oil can remove eczema skin marks? I saw you mentioned it helps with acne so this information would be really helpful.

    Thank you.

      Rosehip oil is said to help reduce acne scaring so it can’t hurt to try it on eczema skin marks.  It certainly can help with the treatment of Eczema.

    I had never heard of rose hip oil until I read your post. I have some exzemza on one of my hands and would like to try rose hip oil. Where can I purchase this oil and are there any brands you recommend?  Is it an essential oil and if so, what would be a good carrier oil for my skin condition?

    • Tes says:

      Here is a link to Rose hip Oil this is an organic brand that I would recommend.  It is an oil not an essential oil so you don’t require a carrier oil with it.  I’ve had great results using this on my eczema when it flairs up.

    Wow so much valuable information in a short space.  Is it feasible to extract the rosehip oil ourselves?  I have plenty of them that go to waste. 

    I had no idea that rosehip oil could be so beneficial and especial since all the commercial creams are so expensive it might be worth trying. I like the prospect of using it in the battle against aging skin.  

    It never ceases to amaze me how many wonderful products are right outside in our gardens yet we tend more to go to the drug store.

    Thank you for sharing. 

    • Tes says:

      Hi Judy, yes it is possible to extract your own rosehip oil, by soaking the rosehips in a carrier oil or cooking them at a low heat for a few hours.  I will have to add this information to the site.
