Roses may get all the love in February but maybe we should be bestowing bouquets of rosehips instead. These bright red baubles are bursting with goodness for our bodies, whether we drink it as a tea or lavish our skin with its oil.
Rosehips develop on wild roses as the flowers drop off. The rose hip, also called the rose haw, is actually the fruit of the rose. These fruits are one of the most concentrated sources of vitamin C available.

Here are a few easy ways to incorporate rosehips into your skincare routine.
Steep a strong cup of rosehip tea in distilled water, transfer to a misting bottle, and spritz your face throughout the day.
Add 25- 30 drops of rosehip oil to 1 TBS of a light oil (Avocado, Almond, or Jojoba) and 1 TBS of rosewater for a refreshing facial serum to use at night.
Add 1 tbsp of rosehip oil to 1 cup baking soda, 1/4 cup sea salt and 1/4 cup of rose clay to make a relaxing and purifying bath soak.
