Rosehip is the fruit of the rose plant. A small berry ranging from orange to red in color, rosehip starts to emerge on rose shrubs in the spring, and slowly ripens until autumn. Rosehips are used to make jams and jellies, herbal teas, wines, pies and many other dishes and drinks, and were a staple in Native American diets. Because the oil is derived from the fruit of the plant known as the "hip", it has a notably light fragrance.
Plant Part Used
Notes of earthen clay and tea. Because it is derived from the fruit of the plant and not the flower, a flowery smell is not present in the oil. Shake well before each use to release its full scent.
