Is Rosehip an essential oil?

July 22, 2018

Rosehip Oil is not a true essential oil, as it is extracted by cold pressing. It is often described as a carrier oil, which means that it can be used by itself and it can also be used to dilute concentrated essential oils in order to balance the essential oil and allow it to be applied to the skin.

The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) in their Vocabulary of Natural Materials (ISO/D1S9235.2) defines an essential oil as a product made by distillation with either water or steam or by mechanical processing of citrus rinds or by dry distillation of natural materials. Following the distillation, the essential oil is physically separated from the water phase.


How long does Rosehip Oil last?

Rosehip Oil is generally known to have a lifespan of approximately six months. Hence we recommend that Natural Instinct Rejuvenating Rosehip Oil is best used within 6 months of opening a bottle. This is indicated on the label with a 6M icon. You may notice that over time the oil turns from a light amber to a deeper amber tone. This is a perfectly normal process and does not affect the quality of the oil or stain your skin or clothes. To keep your Rosehip Oil at its best, follow these tips:

  • Store Rosehip Oil in a cool place below 30 degrees or in the fridge
  • Make sure you tighten the cap securely after every use
  • Keep Rosehip Oil out of sunlight
  • Buy Rosehip Oil that comes in a dark glass bottle
  • Use Rosehip Oil within 6 months of opening the bottle
