I went walking the other day and I found lots and lots of wild rose hips! So I went back home, got my basket and now I have enough rose hips to last me all year. You can do lots of things with rose hips but I use them for tea, because it is a fantastic way to get all the nutrients. So read on to find out about the benefits of rose hip tea.

High in Vitamin C

Rose hips are one on the best natural sources of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is a vital nutrient in your body and helps to produce collagen which is needed to keep your skin healthy and young looking. Vitamin C also boosts your immune system which makes it a perfect drink to help you avoid colds once winter comes

It can reduce Joint Pain

Studies have shown that Rose hips can help reduce joint pain. Rose hips work by helping to reduce chronic inflammation which is one of the biggest causes of long term joint pain. This means it can help people who suffer from diseases like arthritis.

Rich in Antioxidants

Rose hips are rich in antioxidants like Vitamin C and flavonoids. Antioxidants are extremely important as they help reduce signs of ageing and protect your body from age related diseases like cancer, hear disease and arthritis.

How to make Rose Hip Tea?

You can make rose hip tea with fresh or dried rose hips.

1) Wash 12-15 fresh rosehips and boil in 2 cups of water for about 5 minutes. Turn the heat off and use the back of a spoon to smash the rosehips and let them sit in the hot water for another 20 minutes. Pour the tea through a sieve to remove the seeds etc and enjoy!

2) Use 2 teaspoons of dried rose hips for every cup of water. Boil the water and add the rose hips and let it sit for 15 minutes. Pour the tea through a sieve and you are done!
