post #22 of 57
Does anyone know if Rosehip Seed Oil is safe to use while pregnant? I have some fine lines and acne scars and would love to try it but I just found out I'm pregnant.

Thanks!

Mine just came in this weekend. I've use dit for 3 days I think. I post results soon. It seems that it doesn't soak in quite as well as jojoba. I'm using it straight around my eyes and a 1:1 jojoba/RH mix on my entire face. It feels good so far. Works well with my mineral makeup.

glad to hear about the good results. I am planning on buying some on gardenofwisdom.com Markey is great and if you have specific concerns she really tries to help figure out what is best for you. I highly recommend them also they have a message board that has been helpful as well.

Well I'm not dumb but I don't agree. If a product works you can often see a small difference in a short period of time.

I got a very expensive rose hip oil (primavera) and I could see a difference in two days. It does work! The difference in color are huge - the expensive one is a nice orange and the cheap one is completely clear.

I bought the RHSO to use on my thighs and belly. While the belly is looking the same after 4 days of use, my upper, inner thighs are looking smoother. (I have stretchmarks everywhere and thought I'd try RHSO for them.)

Did someone say you were dumb? And it is of course your perogative to disagree.

Anyhow, my oil is also very dark orange, and it is rather thick. I haven't had any problems with it making my face greasy either; it soaks in pretty quickly. I noticed some people in this thread thought it didn't soak in very well....so I wondered if that was a difference between the heavier orange stuff and the clear stuff.

I couldn't find it there. I ordered mine from MRH and it arrived within a few days.

I've been using it about a week and no visable results. I'm due for a facial soon and I'm curious if she says that my eye area still looks dry (a diagnosis from my last appt, 3 months ago). I'm not expecting miracles though.

I haven't started using it on stretch marks. I guess I'm a bit doubtful that it'll work. I'm not too worried about stretch marks but I wouldn't mind them taking a permanent vacation either!

Well, I started using it Saturday I think. I thought it felt nice, but wasn't expecting miracles. I noticed last night that my "parentheses" between my eye-brows looks better! I couldn't believe it. It was one of those things where I just noticed it while washing my hands, not really even looking at my face in particular. I'm going to be watching it like a hawk now though!

Flmama - I've read up on various kinds of oils and haven't seen anything that would lead me to believe RHSO is inappropriate for pregnancy. (Many essential oils are contraindicated, but rose hip seed oil is a carrier oil, not an essential oil.) At any rate, I've been using it in my belly oil blend. It comprises about 1/4 of the total mixture. No stretch marks so far, but I'm only in the 8th month. Last time I didn't develop any stretch marks on my belly until about a week or two before the birth.

If you purchased this from MRH, what do you find to be the best application method? The bottle neck seems wider than any other I've used (for an oil) and this morning used quite a bit more came rushing out of the bottle than I expected.

Just your fingers, or cotton balls?

My Whole Foods had it when I went last week. I didn't get any because I didn't want to spend the money. My guess is you can get it cheaper online. I don't recall the brand they had but it was a little <1oz jar of it. It seemed to me it wouldn't last very long. HTH

I need to put it in a different bottle, I agree. They have the brown glass dropper bottle at my natural foods store in town. I think I will get one of those. I have been puting my middle & ring fingers over the hole, so it is completely covered so none leaks out. I only do this right after I have washed my hands. I get just the right amount to go around both eyes. Then I do it again for my forehead. But I like the idea of a dropper, like I use for my jojoba.

A few questions, if you don't mind:

1) What is MRH?
2) Is there a diffence between Rose Hip Oil and Rose Hip SEED oil?
3) A woman at my Wholefoods was recently demoing a new product line with rose hip oil as the base, and says it comes from England and is sponsored by Gwenth Paltrow (not that I care about Ms. palro's involvement -- just trying to place the product). A tiny bottle of the syrum was $85. Is the the product some of you are talking about? And if so, is it worth the big bucks -- or should I just buy one of the cheaper options mentioned her?

1) MRH = Mountain Rose Herbs
2) No clue, LOL. I got Rosehip Seed Oil from MRH.
3) No way! Personally, I would never pay that much for a facial product. I paid $9.50 for a 4 oz bottle of RSO.

Can you mix RHSO with another essential oil to help the smell? Its not particularly pleasant, though I love the product!! What would be a safe EO to use?

Really?! I would love to get rid of my own "parentheses," or at least make them less noticeable...without botox! I've been intersted in trying RHSO for a while. I think I will take the plunge and order some. Question - does it need to be refrigerated, or do you keep it at room temp? Thanks!

I have mine in a dropper bottle and added some lavender EO into it. DH face is definitely much smoother than before. We have been using that for about 2 weeks now. I personally don't see too much of a different yet...
post #40 of 57
I've used Rosehip Seed Oil for six months, averaging 3-4 times a week. I definitely see a difference! I put it on straight from the bottle, no dilution but I will say try to apply it before going to bed. No breakouts and my skin is smoother, which is such a relief since I spend so much time outdoors!
