Ho there! Am I late? Did the alchemist workshop start without me? No? Ha! Phew! What a relief!
Ummm… Why does your gaze settle so on my middle, friend?
Yes. Yes. Yes, your old friend Balbo has put on a few. But I am hardly to blame. Were you here for the celebration honoring one of our favorite classes—Rangers?
No? Well, my friend, the town held a weeklong feast. The rangers brought back many wagons full of fresh meat.
So…yes, ha, I must have gained…oh, perhaps weight equal to that of a fighter’s weapons stash, or something equal to a barrel full of our town vintner’s best wine.
Now, old Balbo must run a few circles around the town every morning and evening to help shed several stone’s weight. Keeps the heart pumping. Keeps me strong. Come closer so I can tell you something, friend. Ahem…yes, the ladies like me plump, it’s true. Just not keeled over or fast asleep from overindulgence. Ha!
Welcome to The Dragon’s Beard!
Today’s studies will include a lesson on rosehip oil. Which reminds me, I should bring Lady Melisandre some flowers tonight. She likes the scent of mintberry and eucalyptus, which is why I like to wear the Cleric Beard oil.
What is Rosehip Oil?
Rosehip oil is produced from the pressing of the fruits and seeds from wild rose buses, specifically the Rosa canina L species found in the West Andes Mountains and in some remote locations in Africa and Europe.
Once the rosehip oil is collected, it is used for many things in the medical and cosmetic fields. You have probably seen it listed in oil form somewhere, but did you also know there are many rosehip teas?
All the major brands have it from Numi, Tao of Tea, and The Republic of Tea. Drinking those teas helps boost immunities and reduces pain by lessening inflammation!
Another fun fact, straight from our eldest scholars: the Ancient Egyptians used all sorts of oils on their faces for health and beauty reasons, including rosehip oil.
Now, if they had only learned to plant lemon grass for its natural snake-repellent properties, right?
Did you hear rattling? Maybe some light hissing? No. Me either.
What are the benefits of Rosehip Oil?
Rosehip oil has a lot of healing properties. Sit back and enjoy a cool mug as we list a few of its best benefits.
- Inflammation reduction
- Collagen stimulation
- Skin elasticity promotion
- Dry and itchy skin prevention (with its natural oils)
- Acne clean up
- Reversal of sun damage
- Scar prevention
- Anti-aging properties (anything that helps with wrinkles makes you look younger)
- Dry, unruly hair moisturization and nourishment
A Rosehip by Any Other Name Would Work as Well
Rosehips are amazing. In fact, many scientists believe that they hold more vitamin C than lemons and oranges. As we all know, vitamin C has incredible antioxidant properties, but did you know it supports collagen production? And the best part about having added collagen is that it will help decrease wrinkles.
It also contains vitamin A and vitamin F and the following fatty acids: oleic acid, palmitic acid, linoleic acid, and gamma linolenic acid.
It Must be a Priceless Commodity, right? No, but it has Endless Value
Do you have Eczema? What treatments do you use? Do they include products with rosehip oil? They should! By now, you probably have guessed it, friends, Tabletop Beard uses rosehip oil for all the reasons above. Does your old beard oils, butters, and balms use it?
If not, you’re not getting the best quality and helpful all-natural beard care products for your well-earned coin.
Tabletop Beard does not want its friends to waste the treasures they have worked so hard to earn. So, put down those lesser products that the large evil corporations have been mass producing and toss out those knockoffs that are imported and distributed by the shady thieves’ guilds.
Buy local and from small businesses who produce and bottle their own with only the best ingredients…like rosehip oil.
