Here is a little Winter's Day project for you..
You may remember that we went on a field trip before Christmas and picked these beautiful berries..
I froze them and then the other day I made some lovely face moisturizing oil ...
We were out for a drive and I noticed that you can still find some if you look really hard..
We have a lot of snow here in New Brunswick but they are still here and there...
I am sure the birds have been feeding on them but even though they are frozen they will still make a gorgeous oil for your face..
You only need 1 cup of them..
Let them thaw out and place them in your mortar... Push down a bit with your pestle just to break them up some..
If you don't have a mortar then just put them in a cup and juice them up a bit with the handle of a wood spoon or such..
Add 2 cups of Sweet Almond Oil..
Put the mixture in a crock pot on the lowest heat you can and let them sit in the oil for four to eight hours..
Or in your oven at the lowest heat you can put on..
Let the oil cool and then
strain it through cheesecloth. I did that a couple of times...
Add a the contents of a couple of Vitamin E capsules and 10 drops of your favorite essential oil..
I used lavender..
It smells so nice..
Here is a link describing the benefits of using rose hip oil..
Hope you enjoy this little project..
Thanks for dropping by and have a great week..
