Ready for some beauty 101? Tissue oil is in fact made out of a combination of oils: Omega is one of them, plus oils from plants such as flax, marula and rose hip. The amazing thing is that all of these oils, when combined, have the power to treat a variety of common medical ailments, including skin conditions like dryness, acne and scars.
