By Edited Jun 20, 2015 1 2

Rose hip

If you are wondering what Rose-hips are then this is the place to find out.If you have ever grown roses in your garden and picked of the dead flowers, have you ever noticed the bulb type thing underneath the dead flower. Well that bulb is the rose hip that we are talking about.

 

The wild dog rose is the main sought after rose to produce rosehip. Rosehips are said to contain even more vitamin c than oranges. Once put through a blender it can be eaten raw. This is an excellent booster for the immune system because of its high vitamin c content.

Natural Healing methods

 

Take a look at this picture and it will be very clear to you what a rose-hip is.  The base of the Rose without its beautiful flowering bloom.

In recent times there are more reasons to look for alternative and less harmful treatments and medications. Rosehips have been found to be very effective in the treatment of body aches and pains. As this is a natural product it looks to be a safer treatment without any side effects.

After research into a variety of different benefits, I have found many health uses for rose-hips. You can make soups, oils, therapeutic uses, and many other helpful forms of products. Natural therapies and medications that are non habit forming must be worth trying.

Collecting Rose hips from your garden

Anyone can collect their own rose hips from their garden roses. Before even  thinking of trying this, you have to make sure that your particular roses are free from any poisonous pesticides or herbicides.

To collect a true rose hip you have to wait until the rose bloom dies and the petals fall before picking the hips. You cannot pick them before this process is complete. When this happens you can cut them off with secateurs and store in an air tight container. You could also store them in your freezer until you are ready to use.

How to make Rose Hip Tea

Cut your dead rose buds from roses. Leave to dry on a drying screen or similar (you could use an old wire fridge shelf).  Allow to dry completely and store in an air tight jar in a cool dark place.

Us the rose hips whole or cut in half.  Pour the boiling water over the hips and allow to sit for 2 minutes, strain and drink.
