Rosehip Oil Canina is known to blend well with essential oils and other vegetable oils if making a massage product. Rosehip oils are suitable for most skin types. If you have a combination or oily skin, it is advisable to try a skin test first to ensure the oil is suitable for your skin type.
Rosa canina blends well so if you are looking for an aroma, add your favourite Essential Oil which may be appropriate as Rosehip Oil on it’s own can present a slightly oily aroma.
Heritage Oils uses Rosa canina for the Skin Rejuvenation night serums, with added sandalwood Oil applied on the face and neck for a perfect skincare toning regime.
Store below 30° – refrigerate for longevity and watch the best before date as fixed vegetable oils can go rancid if kept too long.
