Rio Rosa Mosqueta Rosehip seed oil is a special therapeutic oil from Chile and is particularly rich in essential fatty acids (EFA), which are known to be necessary constituents of cell membranes, in the synthesis of the hormone, like prosta, glandins and in skin welfare.
This pure, unscented oil extracted from the seeds of a wild rose of the Andes can be used to maintain freshness and texture in the skin, to attenuate scars and to help prevent the signs of premature ageing.
For healing scars expect a benefit after 6 to 8 weeks.
Rio Health Direct has specialised in the herbs of the Amazon Rainforest for over fifteen years. By far the greatest concentration of plant species on the planet is to be found in the Amazon basin.
It is estimated that over 80% of the earth's bio-diversity is located in this amazing profusion. Amongst this huge biomass there are thought to be many plant species with therapeutic possibilities. Graeme Lewis and Ben Nash have together led Rio Health for the last fourteen years. Graeme, who, visits the Amazon region regularly, has a theory that may lead him to some very interesting discoveries.
Although from the air the jungle canopy may look like a wild diverse confusion, there are signs that hand the hand of man may once, thousands of years ago, have been involved in the selection and planting of species. Some food plants, for instance, not native to the Amazon basin, appear along clearly defined routes stretching hundreds of miles, as if they had been sketched to support travellers. So do some of the known medicinal plants. In the intervening centuries the pathways of this vast herb garden have become overgrown and unclear, but head westward from Manaus, along an ancient route may bring to light some very special new plant by the wayside.
