Herb Spotlight: Rose Hips

This week we are shining the light on rose hips in our herb spotlight! Where do rose hips come from? Yes, you're correct, roses! But where!?

This week we are shining the light on rose hips in our herb spotlight! Where do rose hips come from? Yes, you’re correct, roses! But where!? They are the fruit of the roses and are often forgotten about because they fall well after the roses die. Inside of the hips are the seeds. A close relative to the apple, these mineral-rich fruits pack a punch!

More Rose Hips Please!

Since most people don’t have access to large gardens of dying roses, you might be wondering, where do I find these amazing fruits? We use the essence of rose hips in our Sensual Healing tincture, along with damiana, maca, raspberry leaf, passion flower, and cannabis. This is an excellent formulary that promotes healthy cycles for women, healthy blood flow, eases cramps, and promotes mood stabilization.

Another excellent way to eat these nutrient-rich fruits is in jelly or jam. This is an excellent way to enjoy the fruit’s unique bitter citrus and apple-like flavors!

Therapeutic Uses

Both the petals and fruit from the rose are edible and contain an abundance of health-promoting properties. Rose hips were used throughout history as a for treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, to increase blood circulation, promote healthy digestion, and boost the immune system. Rose hips are rich in vitamins E, K, and B, as well as magnesium, iron, potassium, and calcium! They are best known for their high content in Vitamin C, 30-50% more than most oranges!

One of the primary components of rose hips is an inflammation-fighting compound, petroleum ether fraction. Another key element of why we use rose hips in our Sensual Healing tincture is that it is a diuretic, meaning it makes you pee more by increasing the salt in your body. This is an excellent cleansing property for the kidneys and can be helpful in preventing and treating UTIs.

We are constantly humbled by the vastness and complexity of the plant world. So many incredible healing properties exist in herbal treatments. Stay tuned for more herb spotlights, as we continue to dive into the abundant plant kingdom!
