We use Rosehips in almost everything we ever make. They support so many various herbs with their nutritional profile!
During World War II the people of Great Britain were encouraged to collect them and make syrup for children due to commercial ships carrying citrus fruits being sunk by German submarines. Citrus fruits were scarce during this time in the British Isles. Native Americans have used them as a food source. Rose hip soup, “nyponsoppa,” is especially popular in Sweden. “Rhodomel,” a type of mead, is made with rose hips.
Jams, Jellies, syrups, tea, potpourri, pies, bread, wine, Vitamin C supplements and now supplemental foods for horses and small animals are all places you will find rose hips when you aren’t enjoying them along the beaches and countryside.
How Do I Use It?
Rosehips are an amazing source of Vitamin C. We literally put it in almost every herbal concoction we ever make, because it is a great support for pretty much any herbal combination.
Our Experience With It
We love rosehips – it is a wonderful addition to any herbal formula dealing with sickness particularly during flu and cold season. Adds high nutrition to whatever you make with it.
