When most people think of Roses they imagine a useless plant that people enjoy smelling and looking at. In actuality, a lot of ornamental plants have medicinal and psychoactive properties. Phytochemist have even taken a look at the chemical constituents of Rose Hips. On this page you'll learn a lot about this plant that you likely did not know was even possible.


Rose Hips are most commonly used in the forms of: teas, jams, jelly, syrup, soup, beverages, pies, bread, wine, and marmalade. Modern herbalist also use it in tincture form. It contains the following nutrients & phytochemicals: Vitamin C ( very high ), L-ascorbic acid, carotenoids beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, and lycopene (also found in Tomatoes), vitamin A and B, essential fatty acids and antioxidant flavonoids.


David Hoffman, an herbal expert, states that Rose Hips are one of the best sources of vitamin C. They are reported to contain more than SIXTY TIMES as much vitamin C as one orange. With this in mind, a tincture made out of them would be a great way to obtain vitamin C when one is sick, and has no appetite. They were also used by the Ohlone Indians, indicating a historic knowledge of their medicinal properties.


There are several preparation methods that I will briefly discuss. They can be ground up and added to high proof everclear for at least one month. This is called a tincture. Tinctures are stored in glass bottles with droppers. They should be stored in a cool, dark place. They have a very high shelf life. The other methods are teas and decoctions. A decoction is basically a tea that's been boiled with the plant matter for an extended period of time. A tea on the other hand, is just steeped in hot water for a few minutes.


When you hear people chant the mantra "There's no scientific evidence to support that!", remember that it's not true most of the time. Rose hips are one of many plants that phytochemist have researched. So when someone tells you there's no science behind holistic medicine, remind them that there is a specific branch of chemistry that's dedicated to understanding plant based medicine, and It's called phytochemistry.
