Base oil/ carrier oil is a vegetable oil rich in minerals and vitamins. Since essential oils are highly concentrated, they must be diluted into base oils/ carrier oils before safely applying them onto the skin. It can also help the essential oils to absorb into the skin more quickly.
Add 4-5 drops of essential oil to 10ml of carrier oil for facial or body massage or as a homemade body oil after shower.
Hydrates and moisturizes Rosehip oil contains linoleic acid and linolenic acid, these acids were essential to maintain the structural integrity of the cell and skin barrier functions, therefore trapping moisture and water in the skin to maintain hydration and elasticity. In a study to standardize the effectiveness of rosehip, it is found that the moisture content of the forehead of subjects increases from 51.55 units up to 62.74 units after 8 weeks of treatment. The elasticity also increased from 54.65 units to 66.74 units.

Vitamin E can help with eliminating free radicals and prevent skin from being degraded by strong sun UV and environment toxins and pollutants, reducing aging and wrinkles. A study to standardize the effectiveness of rosehip has found out that rosehip oil can reduce wrinkles. After 8 weeks of applications, the mean depth of crow’s feet wrinkles index decreased from 45.52 to 41.69 in 8 weeks. Moreover, rosehip oil had been used on 108 patients who had undergone open surgical procedures, receiving topical treatment twice a day on the scar. After recording data for 12 weeks, it has been concluded that rosehip oil can treat scars as there were improvements in scar colour and reduction in inflammation compared to those receiving no treatments on the scar. Therefore rosehip oils can treat scars. Sources: Phetcharat, L., Wongsuphasawat, K., & Winther, K. (2015).

Rosehip oil contains lycopene and beta carotene, and a research article indicated that it has skin-lightening properties. Furthermore an animal study found out that pigmentation from melanogenesis in skin was inhibited after applying rosehip.
