Dr Oz: Rose Hip Oil Psoriasis Treatment
Roses come in many colors and Rosehip Oil has a variety of benefits.

Dr Oz: Rose Oil Cost Vs Rosehip Oil Cost
You may think that something this effective comes with a hefty price tag. But Dr Oz said that it is actually very affordable. Sometimes oils can cost more than you expected, but a quick survey found that women don’t want to pay much more than about $10 per bottle for the oils they use on their skin.
Dr Oz said that an average Rose Oil contains 60,000 petals per ounce, which can run the cost up to around $200 per bottle. However, you can use Rose Hip Oil, which comes from the entire plant, is much more affordable, at approximately $10 per bottle.
Dr Oz: Ways To Use Rose Hip Oil
Dr Oz said that you should apply Rose Hip Oil to your skin right as you get out of the shower, because your skin will still be moist, and it can help to lock that in. He also suggested adding a drop or two into your moisturizer each day to get the benefits and make it last longer.
