Tucked under the delicate petals of the rose is the round rose hip that’s home to the plant’s seeds. The oil is very high in vitamin A which helps promote cell turnover, boost collagen formation, reduce hyperpigmentation, and nourish the skin. Whenever you enjoy the benefits of this lovely oil, offer a mental nod of gratitude to the people who harvest the seeds. The rose grows in dense, thorny shrubs that protect the flowers and the tiny seeds are attached to hair-like fronds that are extremely itchy and even fatal if breathed into the lungs. It’s notoriously difficult work and we’re thankful for the professionals who do it.
