Rose Hip Oil ( Home made)

 

The Rose hips contain an oil called Rosa Mosqueta that is beneficial for the skin when you need to treat scars, eczema, burns, dry skin and wrinkles.  I tried to make Rose hip Oil. The followings are my steps to produce it.

I collected the ripen rose hips and trimmed them neatly.

Then washed and rinsed a few times.

Put them onto the trays on top of the paper towel. Dried them at outside under the Sun (to absorb Vitamin D) for a day.

Cut each of them vertical direction, put them in the slow cooker pot (preferably ceramic pot).

Poured the carrier oils ( I choose Almond Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil), so Rose hips would be cooked in the carrier oil.

Cooked in the slowest setting on my slow cooker (Bettey Crocker) for 3 hours, then switched to Keep-Warm for over-night (12 hours + ).

Cooled down, scoop them onto the strainer, and mash them with the grinding stick in the bowl. Then squeezed the remainder by using cheese cloth to extract Rose hip Essence.

I added the Vitamin E oil. I used Kirkland Vitamin E Soft Gel Capsules, pocked the holes and squeeze out the gel into the mixture. The Vitamin E serves as natural preservative and also benefit to your skins.

Need to keep cooler and dark place as a storage.

This article is interesting regarding with Rose hip oil and Rose hip seeds oil.
