Use: A plant that acts as an excellent immune booster and is used to prevent and treat the common cold. Rosehips can also be used to help stomach irritation and ease back and leg pain.*
History: Rosehips have been used for hundreds of years. During the middle ages, rose hips were thought to be sacred, which is why Catholics made their rosary from rose hips, and hence called it the rosary. During WWII in Britain they were used as a replacement for orange slices so soldiers could still get Vitamin C when oranges could no longer be imported.
