Hi everyone. I was wondering if anyone could give me brand recomendations for emu oil and rosehip see oil. I would really like to try these, but with so many brands, I don't know what to get. I don't have a lot of money so I'm looking for brands under 50 dollars. I would really appreciate any kind of help, thanks.

Also, if anyone can give me advice on how to minimize body scars, I would really appreciate it. I have a lot of scars on my lower and upper arm from a bad accident a few years ago. Most of the scars are somewhat raised and white. I know I can't get rid of them, but I'm hoping to at least make them relatively invisible.

I think you should buy organic oils.

Thanks for the fast reply. That's what I was thinking I should get. Organic oils. I just wasn't sure if there was a better brand. Should I just buy whatever I can find?

I can make some research for you first and then I will let you know if you do not mind to wait a little bit.

I use Squalene Skin Oil, the one I buy is not organic but it is very ultra fine oil and it works great for my skin I think you should try one unfortunately i can not post a link where you can buy this oil according to rules of this forum. Anyway it is MAYUMI SQUALANE ULTRA FINE OIL.
Squalene Skin Oil penetrates deep into the skin to help accelerate new cell growth, quiet skin, heal burns, protect from the elements, and soothe shaving irritations. Perfect for round the clock applications. Softens, diminishes tiny facial lines. Heals, soothes dry, irritated skin. Creates a barrier to protect your skin against the harsh environment. Apply throughout the day to rough, dry areas of the body. Also to sunburned skin. Smoothes your skin for flawless make-up applications. As a base it makes your moisturizer and facial treatment work more effectively. Squalane is 100% compatible with the natural oils of your body.

Mayumi's "pure natural" squalane is derived from the livers of deep sea sharks.

If it matters to you (and I am specifically addressing this_mystery07 in this regard), there are kinder more sustainable alternatives to this, i.e. squalane derived from olive oil, which is just as good.

In terms of scarring, there are internet resources which indicate that helichrysum essential oil in a base of rosehip seed oil has been effective for some people. Helichyrsum is terribly expensive, but it is much cheaper to buy the oil and very easy to mix it yourself in organic rosehip seed oil, rather than to buy this pre-mixed from vendors.

Just google gardenofwisdom or newdirectionsaromatics.

Try out this site. I ordered stuff from them the other day and received it this morning and it smells GORGEOUS! Just read the stuff on their home page and the ingredients of the products. All oils, no chemicals. Plus, all fair trade with very reasonable prices. I bought the rose oil (15 face oil), which contains Rosehip oil (retinol, Vitamin A) amongst many others. Hope this helps!

:P
