Did you know rosehip seed oil contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, making it great for fine lines and wrinkles? I was unaware of the many rosehip seed oil benefits until recently when I purchased argan oil from Majestic Pure and received a complimentary sample of rosehip seed oil.
Rosehip Seed Oil Benefits
Rosehip seed oil is harvested from rose bush seeds and contains numerous health and beauty benefits. It is commonly used for its ability to help even the skin tone; heal hyperpigmentation; soften scar tissue; smooth the skin’s texture; repair brittle nails; and, lessen fine lines and wrinkles.

How to Use Rosehip Seed Oil
Use a few drops on the affected area two to three times a day. Results should become apparent within a few months.
Rosehip Oil Skin and Body Benefits
Rosehip seed oil contains powerhouse nutrients — essential fatty acids, antioxidants and Vitamin A (retinol), Vitamin B-carotene, Vitamin C and Vitamin E — which aide in hydrating, restoring, repairing and protecting the skin from environmental stress. Because rosehip seed oil easily absorbs into the skin, it acts as a protective barrier.
Rosehip Seed Oil Hair and Scalp Benefits
It reduces inflammation and discomfort associated with scalp irritations like itchy scalp, dry scalp, dermatitis, psoriasis and dandruff. While home remedies and natural options are cheap and enticing, always play it safe and seek medical attention when in doubt.
Like many oils, rosehip seed oil can be applied directly to the scalp for a soothing scalp treatment, directly to the hair for sealing in moisture, or mixed in with other hair care products like shampoo, conditioner or DIY oil blends.
FYI: Rosehip seed oil is used in Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner which I love. Aubrey Organics states rosehip seed oil is great for restoring moisture.
Rosehip Seed Oil Aromatherapy
Rosehip seed oil is said to provide a calming effect because of its floral scent.
Rosehip Seed Oil Price & Storage
Price varies but seems to average $5 per ounce. Majectic Pure, however, sells a 4 oz. bottle with a dropper for $14.94. Rosehip seed oil should be stored in a cool dark place or refrigerated.
Be sure to buy cold-pressed oils when and where possible because it hasn’t been altered by heat, thus it retains more of its nutrients. All of Majestic Pure oils are cold-pressed oils.
My Planned Use
- Rather than continuously investing in expensive cuticle oils, I have supplemented my manicure stash by using rosehip seed oil. My nails don’t appear nearly as dry when washing them throughout the day.
- I plan to use rosehip seed oil in my oil concoctions and deep conditioner mixes. My hair loves Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose so I feel pretty confident that I will be able to use rosehip seed oil without issue.
- I have used rosehip seed oil on my face a few times but not enough to see any changes in my hyperpigmentation. I am hoping for big things in this area!
