If you want to economically take advantage of all of its properties, in this OneHowTo article we'll explain to you in detail how to make rosehip oil.
First, you should know that rosehip oil is extracted from hips, which are the fruits of wild roses, a shrub that can be found in woods and hedgerows. Therefore to make this oil at home, we must collect these fruits directly or purchase them. If you want to collect them, keep in mind that autumn is when they are ripe and ready to pick. It is also best done on sunny, dry days to avoid fungi that can spoil the oil preparation.

Once you have acquired the hips, the process of making the rosehip oil is very simple. First, lightly rinse the rose hips and dry them very well with a cloth. Then, remove the edges of each of the hips with a knife and cut them in half to unleash all their interior contents and magnificent properties.
Now you only have to put all the halved hips in a glass bottle with a lid. For example, you can use any glass jar that packaged vegetables came in. Once you've put them in the jar, add almond oil and completely cover all the fruits with it. Almond oil is ideal to moisturize and beautify the skin deep down.
Finally, close the glass bottle well, store it in a cool, dry place and let it sit there for at least 20 days. Afterwards, strain the contents of the bottle for the ready-to-use resulting liquid.
It's that simple! Following these steps, you can make great rosehip oil at home and start using it on your skin. Notice how it improves your appearance and invigorates your looks.
