If your looking for an all-natural and organic beauty product for anti-aging, look no further! You need to add rosehip oil to your beauty routine. I recently got the opportunity to try Dr Song’s Rose Hip Oil.
Rosehip oil is derived from roses which grow in the southern Andes of Chile. Manufacturers press and extract the oil from the wild rose bushes. Rosehip oil is a great all-natural, organic product with amazing skin rejuvenating and hair conditioning properties. It’s rich in phytochemicals and nutrients that help maintain, protect and strengthen the skin. Rosehip oil is full of Vitamin A (Retinol), Vitamin C, essential fatty acids Omega-3, 6 & 9 as well as Lycopene and Beta-Carotene.
With thousands of uses, Rosehip oil has become one of the most highly recommended organic product available for beauty and health.

While Rosehip oil is prefect to use alone, I decided to play around and make my own facial moisturizing oil. I used 3 ingredients in my facial moisturizer.
I chose Argan Oil as my base oil. Sterolins in this oil, boost skin metabolism, enhances the lipid bi-layer to seal moisture and also has an anti-inflammatory property that can soothe your skin. It’s great for drying, aging, oily, normal or acne-prone skin.
~ Other good options for base oils: Jojoba Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Avocado Oil, Grape Seed Oil
Then I chose Rosehip Oil as my nourishing oil. It’s known for it’s firming and anti-aging properties. It can make your skin tone even and bright while soothing your skin and reducing inflammation and redness. Also good for dry, aging and normal skin.
~ Other good options for nourishing oils: Tamanu Oil, Neem Oil, Emu Oil, Carrot Seed Oil, Borage Oil, Seabuckthorn Oil, Evening Primose Oil
I used Lavender as my healing essential oil. It soothes your nerves naturally and also has a very pleasant and soothing aroma. It’s great for acne, oily or dry skin.
~ Other good options for healing essential oils: Rosemary, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Chamomile, Rose, Palmarosa, Rose Geranium
Recipe for Facial Moisturizing Oil:
I used a 1-oz bottle
- Fill the bottle 2/3 of the way with your base oil of choice (Argan Oil)
- Add your nourishing oil of choice until the bottle is just about full (Rosehip Oil)
- Add 4-6 drops of the essential oil of your choice (Lavender)
- Close and shake well. Add more essential oil if needed.
You can experiment with the ingredients and see what works best for your skin.
Rosehip oil gives you beautiful, glowing skin when used regularly. It helps to smooth fines lines and wrinkles and evens your skin tone. If you find that Rosehip oil is too heavy for your skin, try adding a few drops to your usual skin moisturizer.
