Lore:Essential Oil Rosehip oil (cold pressed from the seeds in the hips) is a fantastic carrier oil. On its own, it helps reduce the signs of aging because it has regenerative properties for skin cells. It is also a wonderful agent for reducing stretch marks, scars, and blemishes.
Because of its expense, rosehip oil is often blended with other carrier oils in before the addition of an essential oil. Edible Flowers Roses can be added to your diet in a variety of ways, as teas, marmalades, or the petals can be candied or eaten in salads. They are high in vitamin C among other benefits. Roses mainly taste as you would expect, with some varieties having a stronger scent and flavour than others, but sometimes they will surprise you with overtones of strawberries or green apples. As a rule of thumb, the darker the rose, the stronger the flavour.
The petals are great for salads, syrups, jams, herbed butters, and for crystallizing for ganishes. Be sure to remove the white portion of the petals, as they are bitter. They can also be made into teas, with or without the leaves.
Rose Hips are also used to make teas, but additionally, soups, marmalades, and even just eaten pureed.
Other ideas: rose vinegars, infused wines, scented sugars, with/in ice cream, infused vodkas, and infused teas.
