Rose Hip

The Rose Hip is the pomaceous fruit of the Rose plant. Particularly high in vitamin C, with about 1700-2000 mg per 100 g in the dried product, Rose Hip is one of the richest plant sources. Rose Hips contain vitamins A, D and E, essential fatty acids and antioxidant flavonoids. Rose Hip powder is a remedy for rheumatoid arthritis. As an herbal remedy, Rose Hips are attributed with the ability to prevent urinary bladder infections, and assist in treating dizziness and headaches. Rose Hips are also commonly used externally in oil form to restore firmness to skin by nourishing and astringing tissue. Brewed into a concoction, can also be used to treat constipation. Rose hips contain a lot of iron, so some women brew Rose Hip tea during menstruation to make up for the iron that they lose with the blood.

Rose Hips are used for the creation of herbal tea, jam, jelly, syrup, beverages, pies, bread and marmalade. Rose Hip soup, "Nyponsoppa", is especially popular in Sweden. Rhodomel, a type of mead, is made with Rose Hips.
