Rosehips are the fruit of a wild bush, part of the rose family, with many properties. For example, its seed oil is used in cosmetic products. Its healing capacity is well known, especially to treat scars, post-op wounds and burns. It is highly regenerative and activates the fibroblasts that lead to collagen and elastin synthesis. Its astringent nature binds the broken edges of the epidermis to facilitate natural healing. It is antioxidant, nourishing and moisturising and protects against premature aging and helps to reduce wrinkles.
Regarding its dietary uses, it has anti-inflammatory and digestive properties. Together with its cell regenerating properties, it is particularly useful to treat gastritis and gastroduodenal ulcers. It also has a diuretic effect, so it can be a great aid to combat fluid retention and cellulite.
