How to use
Rosehip carrier oil is excellent for dry, irritated, or weathered skin. At 100% strength, combined with Helichrysum italicum essential oil at 5% dilution, it is useful in reducing the appearance of scars. In other products, such as a moisturizer or in lotions or balms, it is best added at a concentration of 5-10%. This is due to its bright orange-red color which may discolor those blends.
