Rose Hips Herbal Remedies - They Contain More Vitamin C Than Oranges!
Rose hips can grow just about anywhere and boast a plethora of medicinal benefits. The rose hip, also referred to as rose haw or rose hep, is the fruit of a rose. The plant, which grows up to 10 feet tall, was showcased on an episode of Alaska: The Last Frontier. The Kilcher clan harvested wild rose hips growing on their expansive homestead in Alaska to use them in jellies, sauces, mash, and natural home remedies.
The most frequently harvested rose hips come from the wild dog rose plant, according to Herb Wisdom. Once the fragrant white flower has bloomed and its petals have fallen off, it is time to harvest the rose hip. They are known to be an excellent source of vitamin C and contain 50 percent more of the essential vitamin than oranges. Because of the high amount of vitamin C found in rose hips, they are often considered an immune system booster in herbal remedies.
