How I Use Foxbrim's Rosehip Seed Oil:

Recently, I have become extremely interested in DIY projects using essential oils.  When Foxbrim sent me their Rosehip Seed Oil for review, I was very excited about the opportunity to experiment with additional oils!

I found this excellent recipe for creating an introductory level facial oil serum at home so I used it as a guide for creating my own facial oil serum!


Ingredients:

Argan Oil for the base oil

Rosehip Seed Oil for the "extra nourishing bonus oil"

Peppermint Essential Oil (I would have loved to use Lavender or Lemongrass, but I don't have those yet)

Procedure:

Crunchy Betty recommends using a 1 fl oz jar.  Well, I didn't have any of those on hand.  What I did have was a tiny empty, clean reusable serum container, which holds .13 fl oz, but perfect for my little #DIY Experiment.  

With my smaller container, I had to improvise.  So, I filled my tiny serum bottle up 2/3 of the way with my base oil (Foxbrim's Argan Oil), topped it off with my extra nourishing bonus oil (Foxbrim's Rosehip Seed Oil), and added 2 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil.

Outcome:

FANTASTIC!!  I'm totally loving this serum!  My skin looked so much happier the next morning.  My skin tone was brighter and more even, and my skin texture was much smoother.   Now, this is definitely a nighttime only serum since its very oily. 

Verdict on Foxbrim's Rosehip Seed Oil:
Yay!

You can find Foxbrim's Rosehip Seed Oil on Amazon for $15.99 for 2 fl oz, which is a wonderful price for a high quality rosehip seed oil!
