Episode Summary

There are so many rose hips benefits. Of course, rose hips are famous for their vitamin C content, but rose hips benefits go *way* beyond that! I especially love them for their power to help modulate chronic inflammation. In this episode, I’ll also show you how to make rose hip tea for the most benefits. (You’ll be able to *taste* the difference if you brew using this method!)

After listening in, you’ll know:

► Why it’s important to taste rose hips when you harvest

► Whether it matters what species you harvest rose hips from

► How to be sure you’re getting plenty of Vitamin C each day

► Why one scientific paper describes the Rosa genus as “a treasure waiting for further exploration”

Rose hips are ruby jewels of medicine being offered up abundantly to us each fall.
